East Africa Appeal

The drought situation in Somalia has reached a devastating point. With a whopping 6.2 million people affected by famine. Of which, 363,000 suffering are malnourished children under the age of five and 71,000 of those children are severely malnourished. The call for international intervention was made for the following critical requirements: Food packages, Drinking water and Medical convoys.

The Somalian cry for international aid and support was heard by Al-Ihsan Foundation and by the will of Allah it was instantly answered.
In May 2017 the team at Al-Ihsan Foundation embarked on a trip to poverty stricken and drought afflicted Somalia.

Special Needs School in Indonedia

On 26 March 2017 Al-Ihsan Foundation travelled to Indonesia to sponsor and support a number of orphanages and special needs schools.

AMANDA is a special needs school based in Indonesia. The school, which has 26 special needs students, approached Al-Ihsan Foundation for financial assistance to help keep the school running in 2017. Al-Ihsan Foundation has since been sponsoring the school and its students for the past 7 months. Sponsorship is ongoing In’Sha’Allah.

While in Indonesia, the team at Al-Ihsan Foundation also visited some orphanages that were struggling to support the orphans and maintain the orphanage.

All Seasons Clothing Campaign

Another new campaign initiated by Al-Ihsan Foundation is the all seasons clothing campaign. This is an ongoing campaign that will see thousands of orphaned and needy Syrian children provided with warm winter outfits (in the winter) and cool summer outfits (in summer).

The winter outfits consist of 5 pieces:
• Warm winter pyjama pants

The cost to tailor each set (5 pieces a set) is just $12 AUD.

Aleppo Rice Distribution

 

Al-Ihsan Foundation sent a truck of aid inside Syria to the orphans, widows and needy civilians of Aleppo.  An entire truck was filled with only 25 kg bags of rice and 25 kg bags of cracked wheat. The truck was sent into Syria and the items were distributed to the people of Aleppo.

Aid Inside Syria

The Syrian people inside and outside of Syria need help in all aspects of life. The most basic necessities, what we often take for granted, they struggle to attain. It’s not ONLY a matter of providing them with food and water. These people need shelter, they need warmth, they need comfort, they need medical attention, they need counselling and much, much more.

Al-Ihsan Foundation strives to provide and assist these people with whatever aid they require. In December 2016, Al-Ihsan Foundation travelled to Turkey to assist the refugees, widows and orphans there. The aid that we provided the needy people inside Syria and Turkey consisted of food packs,

Refugees in Gaziantep

We closed our journey with a visit to the refugees in Gaziantep. Here we found people living in extreme poverty.  We provided them with food packs that would last them a month. The food packs consisted of rice, cracked wheat, lentils, beans, chocolate spread, tomato paste, vegetable oil and salt. We also gave cash handouts to families whose conditions were worse than others.

TV & DVD for an Orphanage in Indonesia

Al Ihsan Foundation Indonesia (Yayasan Amal Al Ihsan Indonesia) purchased a TV and a DVD which will be used for Islamic educational programs to help educate the children in an orphanage about their religion, hoping to bring about a generation of youth with sound Islamic knowledge.

This orphanage houses approximately 114 children who are either orphans or placed there by parents who cannot afford to care for them. The orphanage (located in the village of Kami Jaya in Cikampek/Karawang), is managing well but needed support in delivering Islamic knowledge, so Al-Ihsan provided them with equipment that will InshaAllah help them teach and learn about Islam.

Family with Autism

We then went and visited a widow with three children. Two of her children show symptoms of autism. She runs a small shop and produces about $150 a month. However, a lot of it is spent on medication for her children. Very little is left for her and her children to live on. As a sign of our support, we purchased items from her shop and distributed them amongst the community. We also gave her some funds that will help her situation In’Sha’Allah.

May Allah bless all our supporters and May he ease the burdens of all those suffering.

An 80 Year old Women

We next visited an 80-year-old woman who lives alone. She has no one with her and no one to support her. The conditions in which she lives in is also very poor and unsafe. She is so poor she cannot afford electricity, so her neighbour has helped her out with electricity by connecting a cable from his house into hers. The well which is located on her land has no pump, so she is compelled to manually pull water from it. We intend on installing a pump for her that will In’sha’Allah make things a little easier for her and we have provided her with funds to help ease her situation.
