Africa Drought Appeal

    A massive drought is once again devastating the lives of our brothers and sisters in East Africa. Two consecutive dry seasons have resulted in lakes and wells drying-up, and once fertile lands becoming barren.

    More than 15 million people in Ethiopia, Kenya and Somalia are today battling hunger and thirst. In Somalia, women and girls are walking as much as 50 kilometres in search for water. If the situation remains, many of them could be facing their second famine in less than a decade.

    'Whosoever feeds his brother bread until he is satisfied, and gives him water until he quenches his thirst, Allah will move him away from the fire of Hell by seven trenches; the distance between two trenches is that of 500 years (travelling).'

    [Mustadrak al Hakim]

    Ummah Welfare Trust has been working through 2016 delivering food to drought-hit families in Ethiopia, North Somalia, Malawi and Sudan. In response to the now worsening situation, the charity has relaunched its appeal to assist even more of our hungry brothers and sisters.

    For £100, donors can provide a family with large food provisions and a supply of water (by trucking water to a local water point). Zakah, Sadaqah and Lillah can be given, so be generous and support as many as families as you can.

    The hungry child doesn't know tomorrow. Donate today and save Africa's children from hunger and a slow death.
