COVID-19: Muslim Charities Launch Appeals for Medical Kits

As the world focuses on preventing the spread of the coronavirus, Muslim bodies have come together in different forms to make positive contributions to this campaign.

A Canadian Muslim charity has launched an appeal to provide hygiene kits to vulnerable people in the community.

“We must do our utmost for those who are most vulnerable. For those facing economic barriers or have difficulty accessing medical care, the risk of this disease is even higher,” Islamic Relief Canada wrote.

“Your donation will ensure that each hygiene kit includes antibacterial wipes, liquid soap, detergent, tissues, shampoo, conditioner, lotion, sanitary pads, toothbrush, toothpaste, baby wipes, and other essential hygiene items.”

Donations will provide individual hygiene kits, family hygiene kits, as well as financial support for low-income families.

The appeal was launched in cooperation with multiple Muslim organizations and charities such as ISNA Canada, National Zakat Foundation, Nisa Homes, Muslim Association of Canada, and International Development and Relief Foundation.

Penny Appeal Too

Warning against the spread of the coronavirus in the US, Islamic charity Penny Appeal has launched a new grant for those affected by the COVID-19.

The grant targets applications of all ethnic and religious backgrounds.

“We are inviting those economically affected by COVID-19 to apply for our COVID19 Financial Hardship Grant,” its website wrote.

“Successful applicants will be awarded a grant for use towards food, bills, and any uncovered living expenses as a result of quarantine and/or work and school closures.”

More Efforts

Also in Singapore, the Rahmatan Lil Alamin Foundation (RLAF) launched a fundraising campaign last month in cooperation with the country’s mosques to help people affected by the coronavirus.

70 Mosques across the country also launched a donation collection next Friday to show solidarity with fellow Singaporeans.

The coronavirus virus originated from the central Chinese city of Wuhan and has quickly spread to more than 100 countries.

The World Health Organization (WHO) said on Saturday that there have been 142,539 reported cases of Covid-19 [the WHO official name of the novel coronavirus disease] and 5393 related deaths.
