Help for Humanity was inspired by the efforts of the late Shaykh Hassan Cisse (RA), a renowned Islamic scholar and humanitarian from Senegal, West Africa. For several decades he sustained hundreds of under-resourced families throughout the country by distributing rice and other food essentials on a monthly basis.
To continue this much needed work, Nasrul Ilm America launched Help for Humanity, an initiative designed to continue the feeding of under-resourced families. Our mission is to address the problem of hunger, one family at a time. Since the beginning of 2012, we have distributed more than five tons (approximately 11,000 lbs) of rice to families in Senegal. With our #25for25 campaign, we set out to recruit 25 ordinary people from our immediate circles to donate $25 towards a family in need. A $25 donation can feed a family of four for an entire month.
