Posted by saeed129 on July 11th, 2014

Disasters are part of many communities across the world, especially where there is constant political unrest or other forms of disaster such as famine, drought and others. When calamities afflict communities, the human population suffers. At such times, much assistance is needed in terms of medical, food, and supplies.

Humanitarian organizations perform a noble duty to ensure that they alleviate suffering in the afflicted communities. The spirit of donation through zakah is what keeps such organizations going. Donations can be in kind or financial, depending on type of donor. Major humanitarian organizations can donate vehicles, ambulances and other bigger donations.

Donor of lower levels can donate smaller items such as food and clothing. However, the bottom line remains that humanitarian organizations need support in order to operate continuously. For all concerned citizens that wish to contribute towards the projects, it is advisable to get in touch with such organizations and make a donation however little it is. Some of the services offered by humanitarian organizations include:

  • Shelter for the destitute: When disaster strikes, thousands of people can be left homeless. At the same time, many destitute children on the streets need shelter and support in various ways. Humanitarian organizations provide shelter, food, and clothing for such groups.

  • Supply of relief food: afflicted communities where disaster has occurred need urgent relief food. Famine is one of the major disasters affecting communities in the world. For victims of famine, the organization provides food and other food supplies.

  • Supply of medical care: in war-torn communities, urgent medical attention is essential for victims. Humanitarian organizations in conjunction with other medical organizations provide the victims with drugs and other supplies.

  • Assistance for handicapped: This is one of the duties handled by humanitarian organizations, providing necessary machines and equipment such as wheelchairs, and other important supportive devices for handicapped people.

Humanitarian organizations call upon everyone to support their services through donations and lilah, so they can continue to render important services to deserving communities. Contribution to these services goes a long way to support the work done by the organizations. In countries such as Pakistan for example, experience disasters quite often and therefore need regular assistance from these organizations. Humanitarian service is essential where disaster has occurred regardless of race, religion, or other limiting factors.
