Kashmir Curfew: Nearly Two Years of Suffering in Silence

'The example of the believers in their affection, mercy and compassion for each other is that of a body. When one limb aches, the whole body reacts with sleeplessness and fever'. (Bukhari)

Years of political instability and conflict have taken their toll on the communities of India-administered Kashmir. Since August 5th 2019, a mass lockdown has left families vulnerable and unable to leave their homes.

Alhamdulillah, we have been on the ground in Anantnag and Pulwama since the beginning of the crisis. Our partners on the ground have over 25 years experience providing aid in Kashmir, and they had permission to distribute relief in the worst affected areas door-to-door and, where possible, deliver larger distributions in more rural and remote areas.

As food and medicine stocks depleted, your donations reached families with emergency food parcels and essential medicines like insulin, as well as helping us run ambulance services in vulnerable communities.

It has now been a year since the curfew in Kashmir began. An estimated half a million people have lost their jobs, offices and schools are still closed, and there is no sign of the restrictions lifting.

Vulnerable families are still dependent on our aid. We are calling on you to not forget their suffering. Give now to support them during lockdown.

 

Our Projects in Kashmir

Sponsor an Orphan

The Prophet (saw) said, ‘The one who cares for an orphan and myself will be together in Paradise like this’ - and he (saw) held his two fingers together to illustrate. (Bukhari)

Generous donors like yourself are currently sponsoring 200 orphans in India-administered Kashmir. Be a part of this Sadaqah Jariyah! Schools have been closed for a year, and your sponsorship will provide education for an orphan.

Due to current restrictions, it will pay for online classes for now (using 2G, since 3G and 4G aren't available). Our partners will wire the money directly into the guardian's bank account, to ensure your Sadaqah/Zakat reaches the orphan quickly and safely.

Build a Water Well

‘No intervention has greater overall impact upon national development and public health than the provision of safe drinking water and the proper disposal of human waste’. (WHO)

As well as distributing emergency aid, we are also building water wells in India-administered Kashmir.

You can help us provide poor families with easy access to clean water, improving health as well as keeping women from making long, unsafe journeys. We are currently building Tube Wells, Dig-a-Wells and Community Wells in Kashmir.
