Let Your Warmth Shield The Cold
There are over 70 million men, women, and children all over the world who have been forced to flee their homes due to conflict – and now, because of this, they are stuck in a vicious cycle of poverty. Every single year, winter brings a deathly threat to their lives, but basic necessities like nourishing food and heat can give life-changing support to mothers, children, and families in dire need.
Studies show that extreme heat and cold killed 5.08 million people on an average every year from 2000-2019. Of this, 4.6 million deaths on an average occurred annually due to extreme cold while 0.48 million deaths occurred due to extreme heat.
Verse from Qur’an: And spend [in the way of Allah] from what We have provided you before death approaches one of you and he says, “My Lord, if only You would delay me for a brief term so I would give charity and be among the righteous.” – Quran, 63:10
