Our initial caseload actually encompassed many more individuals, most of whom we were able to direct to external sources for financial assistance. The cases you see below are only the select few who had already exhausted their funds and county’s assistance as sources of help, and they were left with no choice but to seek our aid. We hope that you will find it in your hearts to give from what you have been blessed with, and bear in mind that Allah will reward you with a greater good, inshaAllah.
 
May Allah Subhanahu wa ta’ala bless all of you who will be able to lighten the burden of these families!
Jazakum Allah Khair.
