As COVID 19 ravages through communities around the world, it is easy to only think about the people on our doorstep. You could be forgiven for thinking this is only a first world problem, with people fighting over toilet paper, hand sanitizer and self-isolating at home on the sofa. But it really isn’t. This is a plague that has the world in its grip, and it is much more devastating for vulnerable communities in some of the poorer parts of the world; areas where READ Foundation operates.
This is why we have taken the decision to protect the vulnerable people that rely on us. Orphans, widows, refugees, pupils and teachers need our help to survive. The COVID 19 pandemic has made things much worse. There is no food, income, hygiene essentials. The camps they live in are overcrowded and access to medical care is extremely limited. We have a responsibility to do something about it.
What is hugely concerning is that there are already reports of COVID 19 in the camps in Bangladesh, Syria, Yemen, Lebanon and Turkey. So time is already against us. But we must still act, and act now.
Follow your intentions of pleasing Allah and do good with your positive actions.
