ROHINGYA MUSLIMS APPEAL

The situation for the Rohingya Muslims is worsening by the day.

Over 300,000 people, with 80% estimated to be women and children, have crossed the border into Bangladesh.

WF-Aid is now working with partners who are on the borders of Bangladesh and Myanmar, and are receiving tens of thousands of Rohingya refugees each day.

People are arriving with no belongings and are in desperate need of immediate medical attention, after suffering from violence in their homeland. Most have also undertaken a gruelling journey to reach safety, which has left them hungry, in despair and in need of shelter.

You can help these vulnerable people by donating today.  Members in Africa can channel their donations through the Africa Federation Office or their local Jamaats.

DAR ES SALAAM JAMAAT ORGANIZES CHARITY WALK TO CELEBRATE SOLIDARITY DAY 2017

For the third consecutive year, the Ithnasheri Union (IU) under the auspices of KSIJ Dar es Salaam organized a Charity Walk to celebrate the AFED Solidarity Day 2017.  This event is held every year to celebrate the birth anniversary of our 12th Imam Al Hujjah (ATFS) by raising funds for the underprivileged who are supported by the Africa Federation.
 
The President of Dar es Salaam Jamaat, Alhaj Azim Dewji, the Resident Aalim, Sayyid Adeel Raza, the Vice Chairman of AFED, Alhaj Aunali Khalfan, the Hon. Secretary of AFED, Alhaj Hussein Karim, the Assistant Hon. Secretary of AFED Alihassan Kassam, Assistant Hon. Treasurer of AFED, Alhaj Aliabbas Nasser and Managing Committee Members of Dar es Salaam Jamaat were among the participants.
 
The Start Off ceremony commenced with the recitation of some verses of the Holy Quran followed by an inspirational talk by Sayyid Adeel Raza.  Thereafter the dignitaries lighted the Solidarity Torch and performed the ribbon cutting ceremony to mark the start of the walk.  The walk attracted about 300 participants, both young and old.
 
Unfortunately, during the walk, we lost our staunch supporter of all Africa Federation events, Alhaj Akber Mohamedali Habib.  Marhum always took part in the Solidarity Walk since its inception.  He really looked forward to this walk and left this world walking for a good cause.  We pray to the Almighty to grant him an elevated status in Jannah, Ameen.
