Disaster Relief - Sandy


Anas reported that the Prophet, peace be upon him, used to supplicate, "O Allah, there is no ease except what You make easy, and you alone can turn a difficulty into ease."   (Ibn As-sinni)

As Salaam Alaikum,

As the East Coast recovers from Sandy, The Mosque Cares has reached out to Brothers and Sisters in the area to understand the impact to members of our community and how we can best assist them.  Alhumdullilah everyone we have spoken to indicates they and their families are safe. 

If you are in the immediate area, but were not affected you can help by:

1. Creating a collection site at your community/ masjid/ school / business
2. Donating essential items like canned food, toiletries, clothing, etc.
3. Volunteering to help coordinate pickup and distribution of items

Our goal is to assist the hardest hit who have the least resources. They probably do not have insurance, may not qualify for FEMA assistance, etc.

As we learn more, we will keep you informed.
