Alhamdulillah, on 24 December 2017, HNCS Bangladesh made its third trip to Kutupalong Refugee Camp at Cox’s Bazar near the Myanmar border, which is now home to more than 600,000 Rohingya refugees. Our effort was coordinated with the Bangladesh Army, local government officials, and supported by two dozen volunteers. Click herefor full details.

SubhanAllah, we have been in the overcrowded, disease ridden camps and have seen this heartbreaking crisis firsthand. Our team is currently securing official access to administer refugee aid on a regular basis. HOW YOU CAN HELPSupport our first delivery of fresh meat (qurban), food, and clothing on December 1st!
Alhamdulillah, with Allah’s support and an outpour of generous donations, this year our Nairobi distribution to orphans, widows, war refugees and the homeless increased by 33%! See our surprise volunteer at the end.
By the mercy of Allah, last year we hosted three iftars for thousands at Nizamuddin Awlia, Delhi. Alhamdulillah, this year distribution included 450 parcels to needy women and families in Old Delhi. Our volunteers were humbled by the deteriorating living conditions of various neighborhoods, where the most vulnerable were identified by one or two grassroots leaders. May Allah bless them and all who donated or wanted to donate!

Alhamdulillah, this year at our second Nairobi location, HNCS volunteers are cooking a minimum of three huge pots of rice/meat/potatoes daily, distributed to over 400 people for their families to eat at home, thus serving an estimated 1600 hot iftars daily. Following local custom, women and children are served first, then men. Insha’Allah if this is sustained throughout Ramadan, we will serve 48,000 hot iftars from this one site!
