ICNA Relief Canada will be hosting 5 webinars during the month of Ramadan. Our webinars are going to be held online using Zoom. They will also be live streamed via YouTube. The YouTube link will be posted to all of our social media once the webinar has started.
This Ramadan, we are also raising funds to help with our COVID-19 response, Orphan Sponsorship, Zakat, and Fitra / Fidya. Please donate generously.
ICNA Relief Canada has already spent hundreds of thousands of dollars in our COVID-19 relief efforts. We have donated funds to major hospitals in the Greater Toronto Area to purchase needed equipment like ventilators, cardiac monitors, and intensive care beds. We've also invested heavily in our food basket program and have shifted our food banks for door to door delivery.
We're also providing free mental health counselling sessions online. Internationally, we are equipping hospitals in less fortunate areas to better prepare for a surge in COVID-19 patients. This includes providing them with funds to help purchase medical equipment, as well as personal protective equipment. Find out more about our COVID-19 efforts here.
Our orphan sponsorship program has grown exponentially over the past few years. Today with the help of our donors we support the education and livelihood of over 5000 orphans globally. As part of our strategy in 2019, we aim to develop sustainable projects that have a lasting impact on communities that are stricken by calamities whether natural or man-made.
Orphans are the most vulnerable members of the society specially in times of war and the chances of them getting exploited increase drastically if they are young girls with no male family member. It is our duty to try and protect them. Oasis of Urfa is a unique project of ICNA Relief Canada. It is a permanent home for about 200 Syrian Orphan girls in the city of Urfa in Turkey. The total cost of building this Orphanage is $800,000.Sponsor an Orphan
