HHRD and Muslim Ad Network Launch Awareness Campaign for Haiti
Helping Hand for Relief and Development (HHRD), a global relief organization responding to human sufferings in emergency and disastrous situations all over the world, has joined hands with Muslim Ad Network, the leading online advertising network focusing on Muslims, has launched a joint campaign to provide aid to the victims of the major earthquake that recently took place in Haiti.
HHRD is working with their team of medical professionals, local doctors and volunteers on the Medical Base Camps in Port-au-Prince. They have been treating patients everyday, travelling to remote areas where many have not had access to medical care since the earthquake. Being one of the first relief agencies to arrive in Port-au-Prince, they were able to assess what items would be essential for the Haitians and focused their efforts on gathering medical supplies, shelter arrangements, food and water. As a result, HHRD has launched their “Muslims for Haiti” website www.muslimsforhaiti.org with continuous updates from their representatives on the ground.
Muslim Ad Network, through its website publishers, can reach over 5 million Muslims in North America and their “Haiti Relief Campaign” for HHRD will help raise donations for this relief effort. The U.S. Muslim population is estimated to donate and raise over $20 million dollars through relief organizations such as HHRD, which plays a part in raising awareness, fund-raising, in addition to programs to help those in need. They were one of the first relief organizations on the ground after the disaster and immediately launched a $1.5 million appeal. HHRD has sponsored medical professionals from all around the world and setup a relief camp that is at the forefront of personal relief work in the area.
HHRD President noted that “Launching this humanitarian advertising campaign to preserve the dignity of vulnerable earthquake victims is in all circumstances a required duty for Muslims worldwide. The fact that Muslim Ad Network is supporting this fundamental Islamic tenant by providing discounted advertising for HHRD to raise awareness for Haitian donations is great. This type of support for charitable relief is unique and will help raise funds to heal the wounds of suffering people in Haiti regardless of religion, language or race. We are grateful for the support of American Muslims in one of the most impoverished and disaster ridden countries in the world.”
“Muslims in America feel for the helplessness and suffering of the Haitian earthquake victims and eager to fulfill their Islamic duty of social responsibility. We are pleased to be launching this outreach campaign. We believe it is our duty to provide support to the tragedy in Haiti,” said Ashar Shah, West Coast Regional Coordinator.
