As we reflect on One Ummah's past year, we have seen much hope in the world:
Young girls from the small Indian village of Kismatpur not only graduating high school, but qualifying for advanced studies in Medicine, Pharmacy and Engineering - in contrast to the growing trend of teen marriages in this impoverished area
Survivors of extreme violent acts, including genocide, received some relief and stability in their lives in Bangladesh with DAANA and LDS Church partners delivering critical pre and post-natal care to hundreds of Rohingya women
Water pumps were installed in India, food staples were dispersed, serving thousands of marginalized people
Our partners SA Cares changed the destiny of some of the most vulnerable orphans in South Africa
In San Francisco, monthly feeds from our Families Serving Families program gave nutrition and hope to families in need.
Locally, people on the brink received small grants that kept them from falling into despair, homelessness, or into a cycle of poverty that can become devastating
In Kachra Kundi, our partners Thaakat, provided almost two hundred families with food staples that allowed the kids to go to school and focus on their education. They would otherwise be rummaging through garbage dumps in this desperately poor village in Pakistan
One Ummah Foundation is so grateful for the support of our donors and the tireless work of our volunteers and partners that help win victories for humanity. In 2019 we have even more work to do - please stay connected -we cannot do this without you.
