Homeless support- Australia
The youth of Brisbane have partnered up with Welfare Aid International to serve the homeless community of Brisbane this Muharram. The Salvation Army has reported that there are over 9,700 homeless people in Brisbane on any given night, 42% of these people are under 24 years old. During the Covid-19 pandemic, this figure has been increasing as people lose their livelihoods.
So, this year we’re asking for your help to provide grocery gift cards to homeless people sleeping on the streets of Brisbane CBD in the name of Imam Hussain (A.S.). Help spread the word about our Master and his sacrifice while providing a few necessities (whether that be food or toiletries) to those who need it most on these cold nights.
Note: Grocery gift cards were chosen to ensure they can only be used for essential purchases.
