|Ramadhan Relief 1434|
"Do not let the deserving and needy people go from you with empty hands if they come to ask a favour of you." - Imam Ali (AS)
There are 925 million undernourished people in the world today. That means one in seven people do not get enough food. During this holy month of Ramadhan, as we experience the hunger that is a part of some people's daily lives, let us reach out and assist those families who desperately need respite from their hardships.
$45 per month can feed a family of four for a month. Your donation will provide food ration baskets, iftaars, debt clearance and other aid to make the holy month of Ramadhan a little easier.
Together, let's give hope.
Every year, NASIMCO offers scholarships to students entering or pursuing post-secondary education. The awards are not only based on academic achievement, but also on service to the community. NASIMCO acknowledges that many youths give their time and services to the community while maintaining a high level of academic achievement. These awards therefore aim to recognise and encourage such achievers.
This year, the following eight scholarships are available:
- Mohsin and Fauzia Jaffer Foundation Scholarship - $3,000
- Jaffer Family Foundation Scholarship - $2,000
- Marhum Sultan Davdani Scholarship - $2,000
- Marhum Roshanali and Marziabai Datoo Scholarship - $1,000
