Working interfaith with the Jamaat-e-Islami Hind, in Coimbatore, Tamil Nadu
This particular project is over : Funding Received
We were proud to join hands with Jamaat-e-Islami Hind, Coimbatore, Tamil Nadu to serve the migrants in their region by a donation of Rs 7500/-. They have been working among the departing migrants by offering food, water and other essentials for their journey. We intend to do more collaborative social work with them in the future.
Need: 10 COVID kits costing Rs 750/- each: Total Rs. 7500/-.
[This kit includes foodgrains, cooked food, medicine and according to need,even cash].
The Secretary of The Untouchables says: ‘A person I've known for over a decade is Abdul Hakim, from Coimbatore's branch of Jamaat-e-Islami Hind. We have worked together on several social projects, and I know how secular he personally is. Now his organisation is working among the less fortunate OF ALL RELIGIONS to help them through this crisis period. This holy period of fasting [Ramazan] is a sacred time and goes hand in hand with the 'zakkat' or almsgiving which is expected of all the faithful.
It has been more than 10 weeks since the lockdown in the country and many are suffering, caught unawares. Realizing their difficulties, the Jamaat-e-Islami Hind all over India have mobilised its members and workers to serve them. Despite the scarcity of resources, the members of the organisation have distributed aid – which includes foodgrains, cooked food, medicine and cash. The organisation has vowed to continue the relief work until the lockdown is over. The COVID kits they are giving out come in various sizes and shapes, depending on what they contain. If one plans at an average of Rs 750/- per kit, perhaps one can donate at least 2-5 or 10 kits through this organisation. It will also help us to prove that The Untouchables works with any faith group and institution to touch the most needy.
