    'The likeness of those who spend their wealth in the Way of Allah, is as the likeness of a grain (of corn); it grows seven ears, and each ear has a hundred grains. Allah gives manifold increase to whom He pleases.'

    Al Qur'an [2:261]

    The drought is one of the most expansive in decades. The lack of media coverage doesn't diminish its severity nor our responsibility.

    Ummah Welfare Trust is moving to support families in four drought-hit regions: Ethiopia, Somaliland, Malawi and Sudan. The charity will be trucking water to starving families and providing them with food staples for the coming weeks and months.

    A food pack of wheat, beans, cooking oil costs just 25.
    This also includes a daily provision of water.

    The hungry child does not know 'tomorrow.'
