Your Compassion is a Lifeline

‘If anyone relieves one of the distresses of this world from a Muslim, Allah will relieve from him one of the distresses of the Day of Resurrection’. (Abu Dawud)

Our teams prioritise widows and orphans, the elderly and disabled, and the poorest of the poor. These families are at risk of hunger, serious illness and serious exposure to the cold. Pictured above, vulnerable families in Bagh have travelled through the snow and ice to receive your life-saving donations. We pray Allah relieves their distress this winter.

You can follow our Winter Appeal distributions on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook.

In Kashmir, the winding, mountainous roads are icy, and part of the route is often unpaved and rocky. Pictured above, our dedicated team in Bagh are taking your amanah to families in need.
