Assalamu Alaikum Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barakatuhu
As we are busy with the our prayer during the end of Ramadan, Bangladesh & Eastern India experienced Amphan, the most powerful cyclone to strike in 20 years, has killed at least 88 people. In Bangladesh, Sundarban & Shatkhira experienced the most knocking down trees, homes, washing away livestock, and leaving many homeless.
The United Nations office in Bangladesh estimates 10 million people were affected, and some 500,000 people may have lost their homes.
“I have never seen such a cyclone in my life. It seemed like the end of the world. All I could do was to pray … Almighty Allah saved us,” Azgar Ali, 49, a resident of Satkhira district on the Bangladesh coast told Reuters news agency.
Three weeks ago, NABIC distributed food packages to the poorest areas in Gabura (Next to Sundarban), Shatkhira. NABIC has been supporting the pond preservation project for the past ten years and supporting 250 orphans & many needy families. Due to cyclone Amphan, everything in the area was washed away and the devastated people need immediate help.
We urge you to consider supporting our brothers and sisters in Gabura, who just recovered from cyclone Sidr and got afflicted again by cyclone Amphan. The month of mercy, forgiveness, prayer, and charity is leaving us soon. In these last days of Ramadan, please support us in this noble cause with your Zakat & Sadaqa.

While many of us are making preparations, decorating our homes, and planning Suhoor and Iftar meals, many of our Muslim brothers and sisters are preparing to fast the month without food for Suhoor or Iftar. As we know, the state of New York has been affected by COVID-19 significantly. The government is providing aid, but the local New York community has expressed concern about many vulnerable who have not been able to acquire this aid. Many of these people are from our own Muslim community and with the coming of Ramadan; it is especially concerning that these people don’t even have enough food for Suhoor or Iftar. NABIC, with the help of local volunteers, are distributing food packages to the needy.
