Moving It For The Rohingya


The Rohingya people have been cruelly tormented by their home country, Myanmar. They have been fleeing Myanmar for years and live in impoverished, terrible conditions wherever they are. One tends to feel helpless when we see so much suffering far away, but now a much-awaited initiative has been launched by the Founder of Hope for Exceptional Needs and my good friend Dr. Uzma Raheem.

From the 19th September to 1st October you can now participate in a clothing drive for some of the Rohingya people settled in Hyderabad. Please drop off clothes, blankets, bedsheets, undergarments and socks at the locations mentioned below. Spread the word to your friends and your neighbours. Let’s work together to make this campaign a success!

For Jeddah Only

What you will pack in the cartons will not be clothing, it will be your Akhirah. Pack accordingly.

Clothing is the most visible and the most agonizing and obvious part of poverty. This campaign is meant to bring some relief to those Rohingyas undergoing genocide. Its also meant to bring dignity and some sense of normalcy to these poor displaced group.

“They are your brothers, give them to wear what you wear and give them to eat what you eat” Prophet Mohammed SAW

Keeping this wisdom and guidance in mind, we need to make sure of the following:

 No dirty, torn and unwashed clothing/undergarment/lingerie
No buttons missing please
No soleless and damaged shoes or shoes with heels
No brassiere with missing hooks and straps

♥️We appreciate and thank everyone who can wash and iron what they give. Let us give with respect and dignity.

The miracle of this life is that when we heal a vulnerable and fragile soul, our own soul heals.

Let us heal together.

📍NOTE-
collection drop off points only for material items. For funds please contact the assigned persons listed for the Khak e Taiba Trust.
