Central Africa Republic Appeal
Muslim Council of Hong Kong
Muslim Council of Hong Kong has decided to join hands with Ummah Welfare Trust in their ever-important support of the forgotten Muslims of Central Africa Republic.
Brutal violence against Muslims in the Central Africa Republic (CAR) in the past year has led to the deaths of thousands of people and displacement of over a million.
The genesis of the violence lay in a complex power struggle between two political groups. This however unfolded into a massive interreligious conflict in which Muslims are now being massacred.
Thousands of Muslims have been killed in a campaign that is being described as an ethno-religious cleansing of the country.
Whole villages have been demolished while masjids have become makeshift mortuaries. The violence shows no signs of ending.
Throughout 2014, Muslim families from towns in the north and west of CAR fled to Chad, Cameroon and the Democratic Republic of Congo.
Ummah Welfare Trust is moving to provide emergency relief in Chad - a country which has seen the largest influx of refugees.
The charity is helping to provide emergency food packages and supplies to newly-arrived families in the country.
Food package contain the general:
- Wheat Flour
- Cooking Oil
- Tomato Paste
Your help for this work is needed, for the Ummah is one and is swift in its response. Ummah Welfare Trust is appealing for your donations so that immediate relief can continue to be provided to our brothers and sisters.
'The generous one is close to Allah , close to Paradise, close to people and distant from the Fire; the miserly one is distant from Allah, distant from Paradise, distant from people and close to the Fire; and ignorant yet generous person is more beloved to Allah than a miserly worshipper.'

"The alms are only for the Fuqara' (the poor), and Al-Masakin (the needy) and those employed to collect (the funds); and to attract the hearts of those who have been inclined (towards Islam); and to free the captives; and for those in debt; and for Allah's Cause, and for the wayfarer (a traveler who is cut off from everything); a duty imposed by Allah. And Allah is All-Knower, All-Wise." [Al-Quran 9:60]
Supporting the orphans and widows
The Prophet (S) said "I and the custodian of an orphan are like this (together) in Paradise", and he joined his forefinger and middle finger together.” (Bukhari)
“He who looks after a widow and a needy person is like a fighter for the Cause of Allah.”
He also said:
"Like someone who stands up the night in prayer and worship and someone who is always fasting." (Bukhari)
