Dear Abde 53 bhai,
why are you being so sarcastic,you know that the shabab will not help and have you seen an Amil ever give a najwa? No my brother in faith,Amils always receive Najwa.Anyway I will come to that later.
To your surprise,people have helped.Three peole have sent funds totalling RS 25000.One Bhai has sent RS 12000,another Rs 10000 and another bhai Rs 3000.All have requested that they not be named.As a matter of fact RS 13000 has been received today and Rs 12000 has to be collected tommorrow Inshallah.
We have bought 120 packets of food totaling a little than RS 100 each.These will be distributed to needy Bohras.There will be afew packets that will be distributed to Non Bohra Muslims as well.RS 12000 will be kept aside as it will be given to pay for two kids tuition and rickshaw in twelve monthly installments of RS 1000 each.And two thousand Rs will be paid to an old couple,whose wife has had a terrible accident.This will take care of their immediate needs. All this has been verified by SBM who has had it checked by two social workers of Ahmedabad ,one of them workd for an NGO and does not even know me.People can send a PM to SBM to check it out.
Please let it be known that yes the thali system is good,but it is not good enough.People have to prepare food because in Ahmedabad,the food is sent for one time meal only and the destitute do not have enough.A lot os people are struggling with school fees and supplies.To many a bottle of fruit Jam is a luxury.
We do require more help as RAmadan is near,children need uniforms and other daily basic items like sugar,tea,dals,rice,oil .These are still very expensive in India and the prices are going up.For example a pouch of 1 litre oil was of rRS 65 a few months ago and now it is RS 72.The less fortunate cannot afford to buy 1 litre packets at a time .Instead the buy in small plastic bags,sold loose .So they end up paying the highes prices.Tgere a families where the income is a mere RS 2000 amonth!I appeal to people who had promised help to please re think and if in doubt then please send a PM to SBM for verification of the above.Even a 100 Rs will make a big difference to a family.The Admin has kindly provided a link .for the donation under the heading Poverty in Ahmedabad.People can doate through their CC anonymously and then the ADmin will wire me the money.SBM is already involved to oversee the distribution of the funds and he is trying to involve a few others for more transparency. Tehre a few kids whoose tuition fees need to be taken care of and some more people who need medicines,food ,clothes etc.Please pitch in.Start with RS 100,you will not beleive but it will buy a pouch of Oil and more.This will last a poor family a month.
Coming back to ABDE 53,Please have a heart .Do you really think that these wretched of the Bohra community have not approached the Amil or the Shabab? You very well know as to what happens at the devri.Its just giving and giving and giving . Why do you think bohras go to Husseini bakery in Biscuit Gali,pankore naka,near teen Darwaja? These sunni owners help any muslim even the bohras with money during ramzaan.If you doubt me then ask any one of the bohra shopkeepers in Biscuit Gali.They will confirm as to what I have said.Even though the devri is less tah 100 metres away,people are forced to go to these kind hearted people as they are shunned away from the the jamaat offices.yes some people are given help,but we all know that they make up a tiny fraction.Just at the gate of teh devri near teen darwaja there will be bohras selling items on the streets on patharas.
Poverty does exists and we are trying to help a few.So dear readers,have a heart.please donate.A fellow Bohra is having sleepless nights because he cannot pay for his childs school fees.You can help by as little as RS 100 per month.Just do it.
