In September 2020, torrential rains in Sudan destroyed over 110,000 homes due to heavy flooding, affecting over 650,000 people. The capital city of Khartoum, where the Blue Nile joins the White Nile, was devastated as officials recorded the highest water levels since records began over a century ago. Countless villages in surrounding rural areas with mud homes and structures were completely destroyed to the point that it will take many years for such places to rebuild what they had before.
Hidaya Foundation raised funds from our donors and entered into talks with volunteers in our network from Sudan, as well as with partner organizations who work in those regions to come up with a plan to best utilize those funds.
Alhamdulillah it was decided to identify families in a few villages that were most vulnerable and help them by rebuilding homes for them. In total, we have built 21 houses so far for widow and orphan families, and are continuing to build homes for families in need.
It costs around $1,500 to build each 13ft x 13ft home. Please donate Zakat and Sadaqah to help families in need.
