Imam-e-Ka’aba Abdul Rahman al-Sudais calls for helping flood victims in Pakistan

MAKKAH, SEP 13 (DNA) — Imam-e-Ka’aba Abdul Rahman al-Sudais has urged a response to the national campaign for the relief of the brotherly Pakistani people and called for extending a helping hand and benevolence to them to overcome the humanitarian catastrophe caused by the devastating floods.

In a message on Twitter, he said that donations for flood victims in Pakistan can be submitted on the King Salman Relief’s website Sahem:

“Pakistanis are our religious brothers.

We have deep and historic links with it,” he said, urging Saudi citizens, including foreigners, to ensure helping the flood victims. He said that the Saudi leadership had always helped the Muslim countries at the difficult time.

On the other hand, the King Salman Humanitarian Aid and Relief Center launched a public campaign in Saudi Arabia to raise funds for those affected by devastating floods in Pakistan. People in the Kingdom can donate via KSRelief’s “Sahem” platform, Saudi Press Agency reported.

KSRelief’s supervisor general Dr. Abdullah Al-Rabeeah said the center was organizing the campaign to support flood victims in Pakistan and it reflected the humanitarian role played by the Kingdom to help the needy around the world.

He added that the initiative confirmed the depth of relations between the Kingdom and Pakistan.

Al-Rabeeah urged people to donate to the good cause by using the “Sahem” app or website or to deposit money in one of the center’s bank accounts at a number of Saudi banks. He added that no administrative expenses will be deducted from donations.

Floods from record monsoon rains and glacial melt in mountainous north Pakistan have affected 33 million people and killed almost 1,400, washing away homes, roads, railways, livestock and crops, in damage estimated at $30 billion.

Earlier, Imam of Kaaba and general presidency Sheikh Abdul Rehman Al Sudais made a special dua for 2022 Pakistan flood victims. Sheikh Sudais also prayed to Allah, which made this disaster easy for people living in Pakistan.

Pakistan is currently facing one of the most deadly floods in human history and the history of Pakistan, displacing almost 30 million people as one-third of the population is now underwater.

The death toll has risen to 1,100, with more than 30,000 injured. The rescue teams have told The Islamic Information that the death toll will continue to grow in the upcoming days.

Waterborne diseases have broken out in the flood-affected areas, which could kill the same population as the floods. With most nearby hospitals completely underwater, rescue is impossible in the upper parts of the KPK, Sindh, and Baluchistan provinces.

The unstoppable rain in the region caused the disaster. The country faces the worst-ever inflation as 80% of the crops and cattle farms have been destroyed. =DNA
