Al-Ihsan Foundation’s Local Aid Program sets out to provide aid to the people of New South Wales (NSW) in times of adversity. We make sure we are there for the people when they need it most. We ensure that every hardship is met with the necessary aid that will assist in the rescue and/or recovery of that hardship.
We have been there through hard times such as the devastating Black Summer bushfires in NSW as well as the economic crisis caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.
The NSW 2019-20 Bushfires shocked the nation. They were unprecedented in their intensity and range. By the end of January 2020, the fires had burned through 5.3 million hectares of land. Over 2,400 houses were lost, and families were left homeless with very little or no possessions.
Al-Ihsan Foundation provided aid to over 2100 families affected by the devastating bushfires that shook the nation. Aid was distributed to the people of Lithgow, Mogo, Wreck Bay, Batemans Bay, Bega, Far South Coast, Wollongong, Dubbo, Cobar Shire, Wentworth Shire, Ivanhoe, Broken Hill and other surrounding and remote areas. The food packages provided were estimated to satisfy families for 7–14 days.
The lockdowns that took place due to the COVID-19 crisis caused global stock markets to fall. Al-Ihsan Foundation’s response to the pandemic was not only international aid, but local relief as well. We provided aid to struggling families to help them purchase and procure everyday essential items. We assisted over 120 families in just two months.
Al-Ihsan Foundation is proud of its devotion and determination to assist the people of NSW through any adversity we may endure together.
