ORPHAN CARE APPEAL

 Please support COIN’s Orphan Care Program. Make a donation to sponsor the educational and welfare needs of orphan children that COIN supports in Pakistan, India, Yemen, Nepal, Somalia and the Rohingya in Bangladesh.

Thank you, everyone, for your support and care for the underprivileged and most vulnerable–our children.

APPEAL FOR COVID-19 PANDEMIC RELIEF

In these trying times, may Allah keep you all safe and healthy. Please remember the less fortunate —reflect on how a small act of kindness can impact the lives of those who live amid such a crisis day in day out!

COIN has sent emergency relief for COVID-19 to the poor in Pakistan, India, Palestine and Yemen.
Locally in Edmonton, COIN networked with Islamic Family and Social Services Association (IFSSA) with their Emergency Needs Program and a local mosque, Al-Rahma, where COIN sponsored school supplies for students from zakat-eligible families.

Please donate generously to help the most vulnerable in these hard times.

UPDATE ON LEBANON RELIEF

Our prayers and condolences for the precious lives lost in the Beirut explosion.

COIN is grateful to the Edmonton community for so generously helping out. COIN networked with another NGO, Islamic Relief, and was able to double the amount sent as the Canadian government matched the amount sent for relief to the people in Lebanon impacted by the explosion.

Thank-you Edmonton!
