SINGAPORE: Singapore’s Rahmatan Lil Alamin Foundation (RLAF), in collaboration with the Singapore Red Cross (SRC) and Mosques, collected funds worth US$ 432,852 to help flood-affected Pakistanis through an fund-raising initiative held from August 31 to September 14.
In Pakistan, devastating floods caused by torrential rains have affected 33 million people, killing 1,725 people including 643 children and causing injuries to further 12,867.
The RLAF said that the funds will be used to provide aid to flood victims in Pakistan in the form of food, shelter, water, sanitation, and hygiene items.

The RLAF Chief Executive Muhammad Faizal said that they are grateful to everyone who contributed to the cause.
“While this sum may not amount to what is required for the extensive recovery efforts in Pakistan, we hope that this will provide some relief in alleviating the immediate needs of the affected communities,” Muhammad Faizal said.
The Secretary General and Chief Executive of SRC Benjamin William said that “RLAF’s most recent fund-raising efforts for the 2022 Pakistan floods will provide tangible aid for the affected, as the communities face complex and multi-faceted challenges. RLAF has made significant contributions to our humanitarian response and we hope to continue this important life-saving partnership.”
