APPEAL – COVID-19 in Jamnagar

ٱلسَّلَامُ عَلَيْكُمْ وَرَحْمَةُ ٱللَّٰهِ وَبَرَكَاتُهُ

I hope you are well and healthy during these unprecedented times إِنْ شَاءَ ٱللّٰهُ . COVID-19 has had a huge effect on the world , and this has also resulted in a lockdown being issued in India with an indefinite end. This has resulted in the poorest population of Jamnagar to go through a food crisis, as they have been stopped from working for there daily wages (which earns them around Rs:100-200 (£1-£2) a day, which has stopped them being able to feed their families.

In the village, there are around 100 families that rely on these wages for food, and the government have not announced any kind of support package like those of us in the UK.

Already in the short time the lockdown has been enforced, three children have sadly passed away. If this continues for just a few more weeks, the mortality rate from hunger will be more deadly than COVID-19 itself.

The duty falls upon us as the more fortunate to aid the poor and needy, and we humbly ask you for your donations during this difficult period to help the poorest people in Jamnagar.

I pray إِنْ شَاءَ ٱللّٰهُ that Allah beings an end to this situation swiftly, and I pray he keeps us all in good health, and as always we thank you for your generous donations.

جَزَاكَ ٱللّٰهُ
