Assalaamu alaikum,

Very impressive, masha'allah.

Someone asked what the rich Arab countries had done. I know people often don't hear about it, but these countries do give huge amounts in aid whenever there's a disaster anywhere.

For the effects of Hurricane Katrina, the government of Kuwait offered $500 million, the governments of Qatar and the United Arab Emirates offered $100 million each, and the government of Bahrain offered $5 million. This doesn't include contributions by individuals, businesses, and other organizations. I know that in Kuwait, the Red Crescent society is also helping, and funds have been set up in banks, etc.
