Assalaamu Alaykum WaRahmatullahi WaBarakatahu,
Br. Azmat Akbar(HHRD Representative) is near the border of Somalia in Garissa, Kenya 350 kilometers away from Nairobi. Garissa is Kenya’s most affected areas. Audio Interview
He tell us that the villages he visited lack water and water borne diseases like malaria, cholera are rampant. Also, scabies have affected many in the refugee camps.
He’s seeing livestock dead on the roads. 55% of Kenyans are dependent. The price of food has risen 200% where as clean drinking water is out of reach for the needy.
Helping Hand for Relief and development distributed 400 food packages for 400 families. Each package is enough for 5-6 people per family and will last for 15 days.
Br. Azmat message to everyone is that in the spirit of Ramadan please don’t forget the people of Africa, the situation is really bad and they need as much help as possible.
