We are alhamdulillah incredibly blessed with Aasim in our lives, and will be celebrating his birthday on August 11th on the weekend of Eid Al-Adha. Eid Al-Adha for Muslims is a holiday that commemorates the sacrifice and the willingness for Prophet Abraham to give up things close to his heart in order to follow God's commands. This holiday symbolizes our willingness to give up some of our own bounties in order to help those who are in need.
In this spirit, we would truly appreciate a donation in Aasim's name to Baitulmaal -a 4 star Charity Navigator ranked organization who provides desperately needed food, water, and medicine to Yemeni children. What is going on in Yemen is considered to be the worst humanitarian crisis in the world now. More than 80% of Yemeni children, according to UNICEF, depend on humanitarian aid to survive.
In Yemen, a child dies every 10 minutes from preventable causes (malnutrition and vaccine preventable disease). This is a something we luckily don't have to worry about with Aasim. Thank you for your generosity!
