HHRD Director in Japan:
Br. Irfan Khurshid, International Programs Director of Helping Hand USA is in Japan right now. Please listen to his detailed interview.
When we spoke with Br. Irfan, it was snowing in Japan. So we can imagine the situation of the people in Japan; there is a big shortage of food, they have lost their houses, everything is in limited supplies and now the weather has been severe for the past few days.
The most affected are the children and elderly. It is getting harder from them to cope with the situation. We have to remember that Japan was not a third-world country. They, like us, were sitting in warm cozy houses, had sufficient food and a good livelihood. Their lives have turned upside down. We should stop to think for a moment that this could happen to any of us.

Keeping Japan in our prayers,
We are all praying for normalcy to return to Libya. Because Libya has become a battle zone, many Libyans are leaving to protect their lives.
The number of refugees has increased multiple folds since the attacks have intensified inside Libya, requiring more aid to the people.
HHRD is providing Libyan refugees with food, water and basic necessities at the border of Libya and Tunisia in Ras Ajdir. To donate please visit www.hhrd.org
