Thousands of people have been flooded out of their homes or left without power after Storm Desmond wreaked havoc in parts of the UK.
In Cumbria and Lancashire more than 43,000 homes are suffering from power cuts, while an estimated 5,200 homes have been affected by flooding. The weather has claimed two lives – in Cumbria and the Republic of Ireland. David Cameron said the flood defences in Cumbria “were not enough” and some people might not be home for Christmas. Storm Desmond lashed parts of Northern Ireland, north Wales, southern Scotland and especially north-west England over the weekend, and more heavy rain is expected this week.
Record-breaking amounts of rain fell in Cumbria, the worst-hit county – prompting the county to declare a major incident.
InshaAllah Mr Ishaaq will be personally travelling with a group to Cumbria and Carlisle on Saturday 19th December 2015, to deliver vital aid and to try and help the local residents in Cumbria and Carlisle who are most in need. The trip will be just for the day InshaAllah. Everyone is invited to take part in this project. On behalf of Tawhid Boys School, we will be collecting donations from staff and pupils/parents who wish to contribute towards this emergency cause.
PLEASE NOTE: We will ONLY be collecting Lillah donations, as majority of the residents affected are non-Muslims.
Please try and help in whichever way that you can. Any amount, big or small will help. May Allah reward you all for your generosity.
