May Allah bless you for your generosity, It truly makes a difference!
Each month, we receive so many heartbreaking requests from our brothers and sisters in need. Here are just a couple from this month…
This Syrian sister is a mother of 3 minor children who receives only a small amount of support from her husband who is still overseas. She is educated and has been able to work as a substitute teacher, but is not paid during school breaks. We are working with our partners in the community to help give this good sister a bridge to stability.
Another dear sister whose previous life was torn upside down by war is now a single mother of 4 minor children whose only source of income is what little her family can send from overseas. In spite of all she has endured, she has enrolled in the DAH ESL and Sewing classes,in order to be prepared as soon as she is authorized to work. She is also enrolled in Tajweed classes in the hope of eventually working as a teacher in Islamic Centers as she once did. We have assisted the family through the DAH food bank and by waiving the class fees for her and her children, but she is need of financial assistance as well while she works to improve her situation and provide for her family.
These are good-hearted, hard-working mothers, fathers, sons and daughters. Some have had their lives disrupted by war or violence. Some, like many of us, were just one illness, one car break-down, one family emergency, one job layoff away from being in crisis, through no fault of their own.
Thank you for helping if you are able. ANY amount helps. May Allah bless you for your generosity and may he bless you with generous souls to help you when you are in your hour of need.
Urgent Appeals this month…
Read one of our success stories!
In one of our urgent appeals from the last year, we asked for your support to help a married woman with 4 young children, who was new to the country, and needed rent assistance, and you generously responded.
That mother has since graduated from our ESL and sewing programs, made possible by the child care and tutoring we provided for her children while she was in class, and she has obtained a job in a fabric store using the special skills and knowledge she acquired in the class. With her new income now added to her husband’s, the family’s housing situation is stable.
You helped to provide a bridge to self-sufficiency for this hard-working family. They thank you and we thank you.
