Our community needs you! 
As always, we owe you our endless gratitude for your continuous support. Last year alone, we were able to assist over 100 cases through your rapid and positive responses. We certainly hope to continue to receive your encouragement and donations.
Our initial caseload 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 all other sources of assistance, and they were left with no choice but to seek our aid.
The families in the cases below desperately need you today. 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.
Jazakum Allah Khair.
