As we all know a powerful Earthquake of magnitude 7.7 & several aftershocks has struck Turkey, leaving more than 20,000 dead & lakhs injured & homeless.
As buildings collapsed due to the powerful quake, many of those dead & survivors are trapped in the rubble. Due to the harsh winter & the inaccessible roads, the relief work is extremely difficult. This humanitarian crisis has left thous&s of families homeless & vulnerable to severe weather conditions.
The immediate action plan is to alleviate their suffering & provide them with the necessities they lack such as food, clothing, medicines & winter aid to families affected by the earthquake. IndiaZakat.com will be liaising with the Turkish Consulate in Hyderabad & provide the relief items as per the requirements shared by them.
Our team members from Hyderabad, Telangana, State Head M. A. Sayeed, Hyderabad Chapter Head Syed Amer, & IndiaZakat board member Syed Khaleel Ahmed visited the Turkish Consulate in Hyderabad, conveyed our condolences & held discussions with the Officials regarding the nature of relief required.
Our Delhi team member & NGO Connect Project Head, Mr. Farook Siddiqui also visited the Turkish Embassy in Delhi to get more details on the relief assistance to be provided.
The Messenger of Allah ﷺ said, “The believers in their mutual kindness, compassion & sympathy are just like one body. When one of the limbs suffers, the whole body responds to it with wakefulness & fever” [al-Bukhari & Muslim].
