Al-Khair Foundation Chairman and Founder Imam Qasim has embarked on a whirlwind Ramadan tour – overseeing the distribution of aid around the world.
His humanitarian mission continued this week with a visit to Myanmar.
Following his successful trip to Iraq and Syria, he arrived in the country to distribute aid to Rohingya refugees who have fled persecution to live in sprawling camps in the north of the country.
Imam Qasim’s inspirational work in the conflict zones brought hope and much-needed food and supplies to people suffering intense hardships.
His visit to Myanmar is being seen as a landmark occasion that will galvanise support for the plight of refugees.
He visited the Sittway, the capital city of Rakhine state, and held a meetings with Ministry of Education and with other government meetings to follow during the week.
He will be guest of honour at the opening of a school constructed by Al-Khair Foundation which is part of a range of projects funded by the charity in Rakhine state.
He will make field visits to water and shelter project sites as well as distributing educational materials to students.
Imam Qasim’s mission continues with the distribution of food packs and household items among local communities. He is also delivering supplies to Muslim camps.
“I am delighted to be visiting Myanmar and helping Al-Khair efforts to bring healthy and reliable food supplies to people who are suffering so much,” he said. “I am grateful to have opportunities to meet with government officials and local supporters to work towards lasting benefit for the people.”
Al-Khair Foundation is working to implement educational, livelihood, infrastructure and health-related programmes within the camps with local partners.#
