Appeal from Hidaya Foundation

As Salaamu Alaikum,

As you are aware the climate in the earthquake affected areas of Pakistan has already fallen to freezing temperatures. Thousands of men, women, children, and elderly are still out in the cold. Our major challenge is (and will continue to be for the next few months), to acquire tents, blankets, sleeping bags, tarps, jackets, pullovers, shawls, ski caps, wheel chairs, crutches, shoes & first aid kits. In response to meet the challenge, Hidaya Foundation has taken a two-prong approach which includes acquiring winterized tents from China and collecting winter clothing USA-wide for shipment to Pakistan.

1. 1,100 tents have already been purchased in addition to a couple of hundred purchased in Pakistan earlier. Our team member will be arriving in China this week for long term procurement of tents, blankets, sleeping bags, tarps and ski caps. Winterized, water-proof tents will cost us approx. $100 each (which comfortably houses 6 to 8 people) delivered in Islamabad, which would cost approx. $400 if bought in the United States. We highly urge all individuals to take a responsibility to sign up for a minimum of one tent or more. Hidaya will be glad to procure tents for other organizations if requested.

You may mail your
checks payable to

Secondly, Hidaya Foundation is collecting winter clothing in a number of
communities throughout USA. Should your community be
interested in collecting blankets, sleeping bags, tarps, jackets, pullovers,
shawls / scarves, ski caps, pots & pans, wheel chairs, crutches, shoes,
children toys & books please contact our office. Each
community is expected to collect the shipment cost.
Logistics and distribution will be handled by Hidaya Foundation.
