Drought Relief fund collection

Posted on 25 April 2016 by Webmaster JIH Maharashtra

With the severe drought currently affecting several regions of Maharashtra, especially Latur and Udgir areas, Jamaat-e-Islami Hind Maharashtra through its wing of Ideal Relief Committee Trust (IRCT) is continuously working towards alleviating the sufferings of the masses. JIH Maharashtra has virtually adopted certain localities in these drought-hit towns and has initiated providing water tankers to the affected people. This has come as a huge relief to the residents of these localities.

In order to contribute for this cause, special fund collection drive was undertaken by several units of JIH Mumbai. Residents of Mumbai are known to be kind at heart and come forward in hordes to support in such situations. Same spirit was visible when JIH members approached them for fund collection in this regard. The trust built by selfless service on similar occasions by JIH has been a big motivating factor for many who donated.

A total of INR 7.34 lakhs has been collected so far towards this cause by JIH Mumbai. Noteworthy contributions have come from below-mentioned units of Mumbai Metro:

  • Kurla = 3,35,000
  • Sakinaka = 79,820
  • Mira Road = 79,306
  • Vikhroli Parksite = 64,958
  • Madanpura = 61,120
  • Andheri Jogeshwari = 28,000
  • Malwani = 22,000
  • Cheeta Camp, Govandi = 20,880
  • Santacruz = 18,000
  • Malad = 16,000
  • Shivaji Nagar = 9300

Other units are yet to confirm as the process is still continuing

Apart from receiving funds at the unit’s office, once the call was given by the Imam’s of the mosques, maximum collection happened after Friday prayers. Witnessing the passion for collecting the funds displayed by Sakinaka team, Azmi Welfare society invited the team to put up a stall at their volleyball tournament held at Azmi Compound and this also received excellent response.

The funds collected will be utilized under the supervision of JIH Maharashtra. May Allah ease the difficulties faced by the drought-hit region and accept the efforts towards funds collection for this natural calamity.
