Pakistan (Muhammad Yasir) The Fiji Muslim League (FML) has made a collection of Fijian Dollars 100,000.00 (USD50,000) to assist the Pakistani communities, who have been severely affected by the recent floods.
FML launched the Pakistan Flood Appeal in September to raise funds for the affected families.
Speaking on behalf of FML, Mr. Saud Minam said the Fijian community understands the impacts of such disasters and the need for assistance in the aftermath of the devastating weather conditions.
“Climate change related impacts such as tropical cyclones and devastating floods are common for Fiji. Hence, we realize the immediate need for humanitarian assistance for impacted families,” said Mr. Minam.
“We stand together with our Pakistani families during this difficult time and with these funds, we hope to make a difference in the life of those affected by the floods.”
“Our prayers are with all who have been impacted by the severe weather conditions”, Mr. Minam added.
Founded in 1926, the Fiji Muslim League is a religious and social organization based in Suva, Fiji. It has contributed extensively to the education system in Fiji, in particular helping deserving Muslim students for tertiary studies through loans.
