We seem to be spending so much on the latest designers and all that we don't seem to notice that our money is desprately needed else where POR EXAMPLE!! **For example...**
A devastating earthquake measuring 8.9 on the Richter scale has hit South East Asia . The earthquake is over a hundred times more powerful than the one that hit Iran last year.
A state of emergency has been declared by the Government of Sri Lanka alone where:
Over 4,000 people are said to have been killed
250,000 people have been displaced
n Many hospitals destroyed or damaged
n No drinking water is available in most areas
By donating to Islamic Relief now, we will make sure that desperately needed food, shelter and medicine are delivered as quickly as possible!
As most people affected by the disaster are relying on external food supplies, Islamic Relief will direct Qurbanis to help those in need. Qurbani for the region are £65.
