Jamiat KZN Malawi Relief 2016

 

malawi1

During the course of this year, Malawi had declared a state of disaster over worsening food shortages.  Malawi’s maize production had dropped by 12 percent.  About 2.8 million Malawians – nearly 20 per cent of the population – face food insecurity.

In light of the above the Jamiatul Ulama KZN undertook a hunger relief aid project to distribute much needed maize in Malawi to rural villages far inland within Malawi which are generally not reached by other foreign NGO’s.

The Jamiat KZN Relief Team immediately began its distribution upon its arrival in Malawi on September 05th 2016.

Alhamdulillah, the following maize distributions were successfully completed by the Jamiat KZN Relief Team within Malawi:

DAY 4: 08 September 2016:

The Jamiat KZN Relief Team undertook an in loco inspection of an Islamic Centre in the Zomba district at a village called Abdullah (Kadya) which accommodates 65 male students studying Hifz,  a maktab teacher training course, Pre-Aalim and 1st year Aalim course along with secular schooling.  The centre has a musjid, classrooms, a kitchen and a hostel.  The students are fed three meals a day.  The Jamiat KZN Relief Team found it heart-warming to see the hifz students making use of the Jamiat KZN Qurans that were previously distributed in Malawi during our ‘Qurans for Africa Project’.  The Jamiat KZN Relief Team sponsored a month’s supply of food to the centre.

In total, approximately 40,000 kgs of maize was distributed assisting over 1700 families.

The Jamiat KZN Relief Team covered a distance of over 650km during the entire distribution, most of which was over rough terrain.
