Assalaamu alaykum wa Rahmatulaahi wa Barakahtu. All Praise belongs to Allah. Subhan'Allah, below is a list of all the projects we were able to sponsor during, and just after Ramadhan. From my heart, I ask Allah to reward you all with the best in this life and more importantly in the next for your continued support. As I said before, the majority of people we support are known by us personally either here or abroad. Others are sponsored through trusted charities as we do not have the means to plant trees, buy chickens etc. When we use charities, most of the time we ask you for £1 or £2 as we feel it then gives anyone on a low income a chance to participate too.
Firstly we paid for another year for our orphans in Sudan and Syria. £300 each. One food pack for Syria £150
Masjid Bilal in Palestine £500
16 chickens £256
6 fruit trees £120
2 olive trees £20
50 iftar meals
Elderly blind sr in Morocco £100
Other sr in Morocco £135
Sr in Lebanon for op £110
Water tank plus 16 mnths clean water for Palestine £210
Prayer area in Orphan Village in India £700. The following is an email from Orphans in Need regarding the 700 pound we raised. Sorry I can't add any pictures at the moment as they send the pictures via Flikr but they cannot be saved. You can see the progress on Orphans in Need website here http://www.orphansinneed.org.uk/projects/orphan-village/ Asalamu Alaikum,
I hope you are well, inshaAllah.
Thank you for your email.
I can confirm that your donations on Just Giving page have been allocated towards the prayer area in the orphan village.
With regards to the orphan village, it is still under construction. Please see pictures of the Orphan home.
Sadiyah Shafi Support Officer 3 and a half yr sponsorship for a hifdh child £660
Shopping and donation for a Nigerian family here 80 pounds
This fam have no recourse to public funds so have no income. They cannot claim benefit and are forbidden to work. If anyone would like to help them with donations please let me know as they now have rent arrears of £900 amongst other debts mounting up.
They were working out of desperation but the father was caught and arrested but Alhamdulillah he is now back with wife and children but cannot work.
I have met them yesterday and seen there documents etc. Please give if your able. May Allah accept our efforts for His sake alone. May He help all the oppressed around the world, give victory to all the believers and facilitate the needs of all those who need it. Ameen
Re:Monthly sadaqa Updates. I would just like to add that previously, I used to update my blog each month regarding the sadaqa we collect on a monthly basis. This, as you know is used for our monthly commitments below so I didn't feel it necessary to repeat myself each month. When we take on new projects I usually do a post about it and then mention the monthly payments then. Just wanted to clarify for those who do donate their £4 a month that it reaches the same needy people/families everytime bi ihdnIllah and just how grateful they are. So to clarify, your £4 a month helps us support 3 more orphans, 4 families in Morocco.
A widow in Gambia and a widower in Palestine and now, our new Hifdh child in Pakistan Alhamdulillah.
We also have 5 new families giving £4 a month. Jazakum'Allahu Khairan
And why do you not spend in the cause of Allah while to Allah belongs the heritage of the heavens and the earth? Not equal among you are those who spent before the conquest [of Makkah] and fought [and those who did so after it]. Those are greater in degree than they who spent afterwards and fought. But to all Allah has promised the best [reward]. And Allah , with what you do, is Acquainted. 57:10
