The Rahmatan Lil Alamin (Blessings to all) Foundation (RLAF), in collaboration with the Singapore Red Cross, is organising a collection to support the immediate needs of survivors and communities affected by the recent earthquake in Afghanistan. These needs include food, emergency shelter, emergency trauma care, non-food items, as well as water, sanitation and hygiene items.

Afghanistan's deadliest earthquake in 20 years, registering a magnitude of 6.1, has claimed the lives of at least 1,000 people, and injured 1,500, with more than 3,000 houses destroyed. The death toll is expected to rise as search and rescue missions continue.

The disaster came at a time when the country is already reeling from the impact of a severe economic crisis, prolonged drought and famine. In addition, challenging geographical and weather conditions have slowed down efforts to reach areas in need of assistance. Besides the remote and mountainous locations, logistical challenges are exacerbated by landslides, flooded roads and weak infrastructure.

Our hearts go out to the casualties of this humanitarian emergency and their families. For this reason, the RLAF is conducting an online collection via multiple platforms starting Monday, 27 June to 10 July 2022 to support the immediate needs of survivors and affected communities.

As per IRAS regulation, these donations are not tax-deductible as they are donations for "foreign charitable purposes''.

About the Charity

The Rahmatan lil Alamin Foundation (RLAF) was set-up by the Islamic Religious Council of Singapore (Muis) in 2009 to rally the Singapore Muslim Community to radiate the spirit of care and compassion to all, regardless of race, colour or creed. This is a desired attribute of a good Muslim exemplified by Prophet Muhammad S.A.W.
