Message from Zahra Foundation:
We are grateful for the generous donations that have been made so far, which have allowed us to provide thousands of meals and clean water to those who are impoverished, orphaned, and vulnerable. However, we believe that there is still much more that we can do to alleviate the suffering of those in need.
As you may be aware, Imam Ali (AS) wrote in his famous letter to Malik al Ashtar, “Take care of the orphans and the aged who have no means (for livelihood) nor are they ready for begging.” As the anniversary of his shahadat approaches, we are reminded of his noble legacy and his dedication to serving those who were most in need.
We believe that by working together and donating, we can honor the legacy of Imam Ali (AS) and provide much-needed support to those who are struggling.
We thank you for your continued support and efforts in helping those who are less fortunate. May Allah (SWT) bless you and your families during this holy month of Ramadan.
