Zakat Foundation of America launches Famine Relief Campaign
In the summer of 2011, Somalia faces its greatest drought in over sixty years causing widespread famine all across the country. The East Coast, especially war-torn Somalia, is the hardest hit.
Around 3.7 million people are now in crises. In Kenya alone there are 378 thousand refugees. Somalia refugees are staying in camp Daadab in Kenya about 100km from the border of Somalia.
Zakat Foundation of America along with international organizations have responded to this crisis by moving teams to the border. Everyone is working tirelessly together to provide much needed aid.
Zakat Foundation of America–with the support of its donors–is providing life-saving necessities:
Food and water are being supplied to Kenya.
Two forty-foot containers of maize and one twenty-foot container of powdered milk for children are being shipped to Ethiopia.
Over 100 families have been given food rations in Mogadishu, Somalia.
By the grace of God, our effort has just begun. Time and again our supporters have provided the support to ease the suffering of those in need across the world. We urge you to help those struggling to survive by supporting our relief effort.
