Water Wells for East Africa: Providing Safe & Clean Water – Serving Humanity Initiative

Alhamdulillah, our previous campaign, “East Africa Famine 2017”, helped provide emergency relief to the famine-struck countries of East Africa.

How else can we make a difference?

“Water Wells for East Africa” is Al Huda Institute’s effort towards providing a sustainable long-term solution for people affected by the famine in East Africa. This project, a collaboration with Islamic Relief Canada, aims to raise $12,000 for the rehabilitation of two boreholes in Kenya Insha’Allah. Our vision is to be able to provide access to clean water to people of Garissa county and Mandera county who currently have to travel for hours daily in order to get water.
It was narrated that Sa’d bin ’Ubadah said: “I said: ‘O Messenger of Allah, what charity is best?’ He said: ‘Giving water to drink.” (Sunan Ibn Majah)

Dhul Hijjah Food Challenge Starts Now!

The Dhul Hijjah Food Challenge is a food drive which aims to utilize the first ten blessed days of Dhul Hijjah to raise food for people in need. The Prophet SAWS has said about these days, “There are no days in which righteous deeds are more beloved to Allah than these ten days…” (Bukhari).

At the institute, we are doing this in the form of an inter-class competition where all classes will compete with each other to bring in the most amount of food. Each class will collect their food items in their respective classrooms.

Donations are welcome from everyone in the community. Food contributions can be dropped off in the food bins at the institute (Food bin in the women’s area, and food bin at the Front Entrance).

Let’s all join the race for good deeds and take this opportunity to help those in need.

Understanding Canada’s Aboriginal Histories

How much do we know about our neighbours, the Indigenous communities? Are we aware of the problems they have faced in the past and are currently facing? Are there any parallels between the Muslim and Aboriginal communities?
NCCM and Serving Humanity are excited to bring to you our latest lecture, “Understanding Canada’s Aboriginal Histories” on August 12 at 3pm. Queen’s University Professor Robert Lovelace will be coming to talk to us about this concerning issue that is currently happening within the country we call home. Admission to the lecture is free!

Eid Toy Drive Update

Our Eid Toy Drive gave us the opportunity to give gifts to children of more than forty families. With hopes of bringing happiness to children for Eid, we distributed 9 bikes and more than 200 toys as part of our Eid Toy Drive.

Words cannot express the joy on the children’s faces when they received their Eid gifts. The entire experience was so heartwarming! Thank you to an amazing community for helping us help others. Jazakumullahu Khairan!
