NSW BUSHFIRE APPEAL UPDATE 26/10/2013
As bushfires continue to blaze throughout NSW, our team has been tirelessly working to supply aid to both victims and firefighters. Our first trip last Wednesday took us to the victim shelter in Springwood, where we distributed food and water. Yesterday was our second trip, which
involved the transport and distribution of two full vans of food, water, hygiene kits and sleeping bags to Winmalee and Mt Victoria.
The worst bushfires in NSW in over a decade has seen 193 homes destroyed and 109 damaged in the Blue Mountains and has claimed 1 life. Several fires still remain burning across the state. Affected families are returning to nothing but charred remains of their homes and possessions. They are now homeless and living in temporary accommodation.
In response, Human Appeal International-Australia has launched an urgent NSW Bushfires relief campaign and pledged an initial donation of $20,000 to support the victims of these bushfires in their time of need.
EID MUBARAK to all our donors,
Alhamdullilah with your kindness and generosity we have been able to sacrifice over 39,000 Qurbans this Eid.
This means approximately 1.5 million people in over 20 countries where many charities have been unable to reach have benefited.
Your Qurbani will provide poor and needy families with nutritional meat they desperately need.
May Allah reward you all for your efforts.
From the Human Appeal International Team
Our brothers and sisters in Pakistan need our urgent help! A 7.7 magnitude earthquake ripped through the largest province Balochistan last Tuesday killing at least 515 people and injuring several hundred more. Another 6.8M earthquake on Saturday also occurred amidst the rescue operation. The Pakistani government estimates at least 300,000 people are affected.
As our fellow brothers and sisters prepare for their journey of hajj in the footsteps of Prophet Muhammad (pbuh), you too can participate in this glorious occassion and donate your qurban (sacrifice) to the poor and needy so that we can all enjoy this beautiful tradition which Prophet Ibrahim (a.s) started.
