Impoverished families in Pakistan will be terrified at the prospect of winter this year. The freezing winds and cold will see living costs spiral and their poverty worsen.
High fuel prices, poor nutrition and inadequate shelter will stretch already-poor families to breaking point. For the young, sick and old amongst them, winter can prove devastating. More die in these months than in any other season.
The Messenger of Allah ﷺ said:
‘Allah is in the help of His servant, so long as the servant is in the help of his brother.’
Ummah Welfare Trust has launched an emergency winter appeal to deliver winter supplies to needy families in Afghanistan, Pakistan and Kashmir.
Donors can keep a family warm in these countries by donating 13500 PKR to provide a winter pack. Just 13500 PKR can provide clothes, blankets and other essentials, helping a family to stay warm and fend off the cold.
Support the campaign by donating for as many packs as you can, and bring warmth to the Ummah this winter.
