*WE WILL BE PROVIDING FOOD PACKS TO THOUSANDS OF NEEDY FAMILIES IN AZAD KASHMIR & PAKISTAN THIS RAMADHAN*
Azad Kashmir and surrounding areas are desperately in need of your help this Ramadhan. As a region which is often susceptible to natural disasters and scarcity of fundamental resources, relief work is required almost all year round. This includes the like of Earthquakes and Cloud bursts as well as extreme poverty to such lengths that the parents are busy struggling with their daily bread before they can even consider sending their kids to school.
Covid restrictions around many parts of the world is being lifted or lightened and people are generally returning to work, however things aren’t quite going back to normal as we had expected. Many are still without jobs or had suffered too much.
When KORT was originally established in 2005, it was known as the charity with the orphanage that houses hundreds of orphan children with access to free healthcare, education and food. Alhamdulillah, we’ve grown so much since then and have been actively participating in relief work, to which we have come to learn the different areas of Kashmir where help is needed the most and what areas they require help in.
It’s the year 2022 and KORT has been working very hard on the ground to help those who are victims of casualty; whether it be by donating money or food to the poor, rebuilding homes destroyed by calamities or by empowering the widows and less abled of Kashmir. With the approaching of the blessed month of Ramadhan, KORT will be providing Food Packs to the poor and needy this Ramadhan to ensure all have the right to enjoy the blessed month of Ramadhan.
“Whoever feeds the one who is breaking his fast, shall have his reward (of fasting) without any decrease from the reward of the one fasting.” [Tirmidhi]
With the month of Ramadhan arriving soon, let us make an intention to do all we can to assist those less fortunate than us by giving in charity, offering help with volunteer work and stack up as much good deeds as possible.
Our Food Packs will be distributed all over Azad Kashmir including surrounding areas and will contain items such as Assorted Lentils, Sugar, Salt, Ghee, Dates, Pasta, Rice and more. The cost of each Food Pack is £40 and with every pack you donate, you will be feeding a whole family for the entire month.
The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said, “The best amongst you are those who feed others.” [Musnad Ahmad]
Please remember that for our Food Pack appeal, we will be accepting Zakat too so donate generously to this noble cause.
