Alhamdulillah, 2022 has been a year that's full of grey skies and rainbows. It showed us life in its full spectrum. We all had somewhat adjusted to the pandemic situation at the start of the year where everyone stayed vigilant, nonetheless. Health is the ultimate wealth.
Whilst some normality was achieved post COVID, more so towards the third quarter, it had wreaked much havoc in the process and changed our lives forever.
Gone But Not Forgotten
Al Fitrah lost two beloved trustees in the first quarter of this year. Almarhum Mat Rafi Mohd Zali and Haji Othman Mohd Isa played a pivotal role in the early days of Al Fitrah Foundation. Their commitment remained with the organisation until the end. May Allah accept all their good deeds and reward them with Jannah, Aamiin.
Throughout the year, Al Fitrah Foundation kept up speed with efforts regarding programmes and initiatives involving distribution of braille Quran and Islamic literature for the visually impaired, supporting schools with educational materials, medical funding (on a case-to-case basis), and food aid for deserving communities including flood victims across Malaysia.
Collaborative efforts were also initiated with partners to assist communities in Afghanistan, Bangladesh, and Gaza, Palestine.
Braille Qurans and Islamic Literature
Al Fitrah delivered braille Qurans and Islamic literature to India, Syria, Spain, Guinea, the UK, and the US.
With the Malaysian Post discontinuing its surface mail at the start of the pandemic, shipping braille Qurans and books internationally has since become an expensive affair. We are still finding ways to work with willing partners/parties to bridge this gap.
In Malaysia, we recently delivered new braille Qurans for individuals needing to replace dated and unreadable copies.
Continuity goes a long way
We wish to thank everyone, especially our donors and partners, for their unwavering support. Together, we made things happen and In Shaa Allah, we shall do the same in 2023.
