"As the winter season sets in, the AIF is gearing up for a robust winter warmth distribution across all nine provinces and plan to roll out some 50 000 quality blankets countrywide."

Hectic period for AIF The first quarter of 2011 has been a trying year for Muslim humanitarian agencies like the Al Imdaad Foundation (AIF), as it grapples with a rapid increase in natural and man-made disasters, which have left aid workers overwhelmed. In a span of a few days, relief workers have witnessed extreme flooding in Australia, a devastating earthquake in New Zealand, turmoil in Libya and a deadly tsunami in Japan. The organisation is also busy with its reconstruction programmes in Pakistan after horrific floods destroyed the country last year. These phenomena have kept the NGO working hard within the international humanitarian network. "We have also just concluded a successful humanitarian mission to Ras Adjir refugee relief camp in Tunisia and Salloum in Egypt where our relief teams worked tirelessly and under severe conditions to serve the thousands of refugees fleeing the violence and unrest in Libya. Alhumdulilah, the Al-Imdaad Foundation has received numerous compliments and has featured in many press articles for its humanitarian efforts seeing to the needs of the fleeing refugees," said national coordinator Yacoob Vahed. On the home front, the agency's SLICE4LIFE Campaign has made a number of successes. Vahed said many hospitals and clinics across South Africa are benefiting from this initiative. As the winter season sets in, the AIF is gearing up for a robust winter warmth distribution across all nine provinces and plan to roll out some 50 000 quality blankets countrywide. On a positive note, the Foundation has announced the opening of its 4th International office in the UK. "Amidst the sad news of so many disasters, the future is not that bleak for us. Alhamdulilah, we are extremely humbled and pleased. This comes with the many requests of donors and well-wishers residing in the UK." For more information on their work, visit www.alimdaad.com.
