Kerala Floods Appeal

    Monsoon floods in the South India state of Kerala have killed over 350 people and left at least 600,000 homeless. In what is described as 'the worst floods in a century,' thousands of towns and villages have been completely submerged.

    Surviving families, who were already impoverished, have nothing and desperately need help. Many women and children, corralled into camps, are facing hunger and disease.

    The Messenger of Allah ﷺ said:
    'Give charity even if it be one date; as this will stop the hunger of the hungry person and will extinguish sin the way water extinguishes fire.'
    [Kitab al Zuhd, Ibn al Mubarak]

    Ummah Welfare Trust has launched an appeal to help those in Kerala's relief camps with emergency food and assistance. Donations are needed to help families recover and restart their lives.

    Among the many victims are Muslims who account for at least a quarter of Kerala's population. In these blessed days of Dhul Hijjah, reach out to them with your Sadaqah and help them in their time of need.

    Only Sadaqah and Lillah is being accepted for this appeal.
