First day of Islamic Awareness Week.
MashAllah, Today we had an amazing kick off to Islamic Awareness Week with our Fundraising Event for “Mercy to Mankind”. A non-profit organization founded by Marymount Student, Alia Mohamed. The organization is dedicated to aiding impoverished, orphaned children in drought-ravaged Somalia. JazakAllah Khair to all of our generous donors, we raised $1100! Alia told us how $7 a month would provide a child with housing, tuition, 30 days of food and much more! Imagine how our generous donations will help these children and many more!
We also had Brother Osama from the famous partytilfajr tumblr blog, visit us and give a small lecture on Orphans in Islam, and not to mention Henna and delicious food for lunch! Thank you once again to all of those who supported us, we couldn’t have done it without you!
