On 24th September 2019, a fateful earthquake shook the lives of hundreds of Kashmir's citizens. The epicentre of the 5.8 magnitude earthquake was near the city of Mirpur, and along the boundary separating Punjab and Kashmir. Cracks the size of cars had severed roads in half. Rubble had coated itself onto every surface imaginable. Darkness had swallowed the city and the wails of mourners could be heard long into the night. Roads, mobile towers and electricity poles were severely damaged, and the casualties have exceeded well over 800, with around 37 announced dead. 14 years ago, Pakistan had been faced with another disastrous earthquake, one which some are still recovering from.

Our Response:

Upon hearing of the earthquake, Ummah Charity International wasted no time in making their way over to the areas directly affected by the earthquake. Joined by UCI's Chairman, Mufti Abdul Wahab, our staff members provided emergency medical assistance, shelters, food and consolation to the victims. Many had lost their homes and livelihoods due to the devastation; some lost their limbs; others lost members of their families. With natural disasters like earthquakes, consequences are sure to follow: grief, death, injury, and starvation being only a few of them. The goal of our emergency relief project is to ease the burdens of the victims and although we cannot remove all of their problems, as much as we'd like to, we do our best to remove the ones we can.

What We Did:

Alongside visiting the affected areas and getting to know those who had been directly impacted by the earthquake, our team also distributed a total of 200 food packs, 1500 bottles of water, 100 tents, 100 blankets. All of our ventures resulted in more than 3000 individuals benefiting. However, we wanted to give them more than just physical belongings, we wanted to help them stand on their two feet and regain the hope that they had lost.

What You Can Do:

People suffering from the earthquake are still recovering, whether physically, mentally, emotionally or financially. The aftermath of such a shock does not dissipate easily, but it is up to us to relieve them from as much of their stress as we can. The stains of the earthquake have been left across the country in the form of rubble, broken buildings, and bankrupt businesses. You can help these people move forward instead of standing still. Donate towards our emergency relief projects today and give both short-term and long-term aid to the victims of the earthquake.
The kindness of your actions will surely be reflected in the success of our efforts.

Zakat is not only the third pillar of Islam, but it is the sole duty that has the power to ease the burdens of millions of people around the world. You can take this obligatory action and help to save the lives of so many civilians who are suffering. Zakat is especially necessary for people like us, who take living in the Western world for granted. We do not need to worry about our food, our homes or disease. We do not have to worry if we will have a meal the next day. Our iftaar meals consist of several delicious, home-cooked dishes when there are people around the world who have no food at all. Fatigue, illness and helplessness are rife in these communities, and living on the streets is common. For some people, fighting poverty is not even a daily struggle, they are fighting this predator every minute of their lives. You can donate zakat online today and bring peace and harmony into someone’s life – after all, this action of yours has the power to transform entire communities, eradicate poverty and reduce hunger. At Ummah Charity International we take the responsibility of handling zakat extremely seriously and our zakat policy guarantees that every penny you give towards zakat will go directly to those who need it the most. Donate zakat online this Ramadhan and help to change someone’s life. Your help is building confidence and resilience within communities. In fact, without your zakat, Ummah Charity International is able to help thousands of people each year who are struggling to survive. The action of giving zakat is powerful and has the potential to contribute towards sustainable development in many destitute communities across the globe. However, it is natural to wonder who and where your zakat is going to, so we at Ummah Charity International give you the liberty of choosing a project which you would like to donate your zakat contribution towards. Your zakat can contribute to any of our social or livelihood projects. You can empower a woman, educate a child, feed a family, build a house or mosque, provide eye treatment or a wheelchair, dig a well or install a handpump. The possibilities of where your zakat goes are endless. Your zakat can change someone’s life. Why not donate zakat online today and contribute your part towards changing the world?
