Assalamu alaikum wa rahmatullah & Ramadhan Mubarak
We hope and pray you are in good health with the grace of Allah SWT. The blessed month of Ramadhan is here, may Allah SWT grant us the guidance to truly appreciate its value and to accept from us our fasting and prayers, Ameen.
The focus of the Society’s appeals is giving financial support to charitable trusts, NGOs & individuals in Kathor that serve the needs of the local population. This covers three main areas; medical/health, education, & social welfare.
Alhamdulillah with your donations and du’as our support for these essential causes has grown year on year. In the last year, your generosity has made possible:
- provision of early diagnosis and preventative ‘Health Camps’ covering dentistry, family/women’s health, orthopaedics and cardiology
- support for five students towards becoming an Aalim, now in their 4th year of aalimiyat studies
- cover the costs of medical treatment of the teachers & students at Jamiah Haqqaniya Islamiyah and many of the local imams & muazzins in Kathor
- direct funding of students of higher/undergraduate courses through support for fees, tuition, subsistence and other costs
- providing the basic home essentials for newly married couples through our Nikah programme
- distributing nearly a hundred food parcels to the neediest for Ramadhan
- providing tools & training for trades such as sewing, carpentry, plumbing and electrical maintenance
- supporting over forty students through primary and secondary education, covering both English & Gujarati taught mediums
- completion of essential electrical maintenance works at the Elahi Masjid, Kathor
- a widows/orphan’s monthly support programme for the essentials of daily life.
Many of these projects are delivered through local registered charities and community groups, including:
- Kathor Medical Trust
- Jamiah Haqqaniya Islamiya
- MAI Trust
- Kathor Community Development Trust
- Kathor Majlis-e-Ulema
