Know More About The Flood Relief Work
The current floods in Pakistan have been the deadliest and most destructive since the devastating 2010 floods. Millions have lost their mud houses and are in desperate need for assistance.
Among the most badly affected provinces is Sindh, where Hidaya Foundation has been implementing more than 25 projects for over 23 years through our partner organization Hidaya Trust. We are ready and equipped to help in this most dire time.
Hidaya Foundation has acted immediately and transferred Zakat funds towards the disaster relief efforts. We expect this flood disaster to deplete our funds faster than usual due to urgent need and costly projects. Please donate towards Hidaya Foundation’s relief efforts and help us continue our services to one of the poorest and most deserving populations in the world.
Hidaya Foundation is working with its partner, Hidaya Trust, to deliver food, medicine, temporary shelter and more to the families affected by floods in Pakistan. We will also be helping with rebuilding projects after waters recede, in shaa Allah.
Hidaya is working on the following fronts to bring relief in the short term and long term to the affected families with an estimated cost of over $6 Million.
