SRCs supporting Mercy Wings in their annual Food Drive

Mercy Wings EID-AL ADHA Food Drive 2015

An initiative by Al Siraat’s Student Representatives Council (SRC)

There are many Muslims refugee families living in Australia who do not have enough food to eat. Children go to school without breakfast, families struggle to put enough on the table to go around, and people sleeping rough cannot always get what they need to stay healthy.

MERCY WINGS has begun its efforts to collect donations for the Eid Al-Adha Food Drive. Its success depends on community support and contributions. Please help support this effort with your generous contributions.

Donating food items or parcels is a great way of helping out the community and can make a huge difference to an individual or family.

The Prophet (s.a.w.) said: Anyone who looks after and works for a widow and a poor person is like a warrior fighting for Allah’s cause, or like a person who fasts during the day and prays all night. (Bukhari)
