Emergency Campaign for a Sister Suffering from a Severe Illness Target: $3,000 (Campaign001-2014)

March 27, 2014: Canada Zakat team needs urgent donations for a sister in Toronto, who has suffered a severe illness of the brain, following a severe blow to the head.

She is in dire need of the basics of life, including food, clothing and shelter. She is currently undergoing treatments in hospital. She is facing severe financial, emotional and physical stress.

This sister has absolutely no family or anyone whom she can depend upon – she is truly at the mercy of the community. The sister lost her accommodation in December 2013 and has been living in a retirement home with an elderly couple since then.

She suffers from memory loss and cannot continue supporting herself. She has sold everything from her personal belongings in order to get some money and she is now down to only 2 pairs of clothes. In terms of profession – she is a highly educated person with an MBA and has excellent career prospects once she has been medically cleared for work.

Immediate needs:

  • Living expenses, meals, transportation, medicine
  • Clothing and office equipment
  • 4 Suits, 4 Blouses, Scarves, shoes, briefcase, spectacles
  • Laptop PC/tablet computer, Printer, USB, Desk and Chair
  • 2 months rent

Total funding required: $3000

Help our Sister keep her dignity!
