Trial, Turmoil, and Triumph: Relief Work in Egypt
Assalaamu Alaykum WaRahmatullahi WaBarakatahu
It was one year a go that people around the world witnessed an uprising called the “Arab Spring”. During this time average citizens took the streets to protest unjust treatment and the poverty they lived in. Though time has passed and leaders have changed, the world and these citizens continue to look forward to year of fulfillment.
HHRD provided emergency relief to the people of Tunisia, Egypt, and Libya as the crisis escalated. Food, medicine, shelter and in kind donations were collected from our generous donors and distributed to those in need. Though a year has passed and positive change has come about there remains a need for support. With a changing economy and policy many remain unemployed and are living off of very little.
Continue to lend a helping hand through HHRD’s various programs for this region. As the winter continues so does HHRD’s “Winter Campaign” along with the collection of monetary assistance. For further information on HHRD’s progress and programs in the region visit www.hhrd.org
Wasalaam Walaykum WaRahmatullahi WaBarakathu
