In the Name of the Most Merciful, the Generous Lord
Dear Friends and Well Wishers,
As Ramadan is approaching, this is an appeal and reminder to those who are thinking about Zakat contribution or general Sadaqa (Charity), that we at Porshee Foundation are collecting contributions bi'iznillah.
We primarily support the most poor, vulnerable, orphans and other disadvantage groups in society here in Bangladesh. In the past our scope of work spanned across a number of activities such as donation of clothing during winter, providing emergency medical aid to those who cannot afford it, giving interest free loan and fund for self-sufficiency of the ultra poor, distribution of food etc.
Recently, with your generous contribution we were able to feed orphans, provided support equipments for the poor handicapped, support education of marginal children, installed hand operated tube-wells in less developed rural areas, donated training equipment for training of physically challenged people.
The vision of Porshee foundation (the word Porshee means neighbors) is to help those in near proximity, people who are in reach and need help. We envision communities and societies where every able neighbor cares for those in need in the surroundings – acting locally, empowered globally based on the universal value of ‘small kindness’ and ‘loving for others what one love for one’s self.’
To realize this, our mission is to work with individuals and communities where extreme poverty compromises human dignity. Our engagement is aimed at achieving positive changes through educational, health-care and economic programs enabling children, men and women to improve their lives in a self-sustaining manner.
|Project Zam Zam: Hand operated Tube-well from your contribution, a perpetual source of charity (sadaqa zariya)|
Why you may donate here? Porshee Foundation is a very small, seeding organization that is run entirely by volunteers and thus its administration cost is next to zero. We do not have fancy office, neither do our executives take any salary from this work. All donation along with contribution from our volunteers goes to the beneficiaries which is unique to Porshee Foundation because this is seen as a work for the sake of Allah, not as a mean for supporting ourselves in any case. All those who are involved in Porshee Foundation have their separate source of Rizq (sustenance / income) Alhamdulillah, so that the money intended to be spent for the needy, goes to the needy at its maximum. We will appreciate it very much if you could spread the words to your friends and relatives who might be seeking trustworthy place to give during the Ramadan period where the door of generosity of the Most Merciful is opened and when our actions are aimed to purify ourselves both outwardly and inwardly, Insha'Allah.
Kindly write to us for other method of payments. Our email is, firstname.lastname@example.org
May Allah accept your generosity. Please keep us in your du'a so that Allah may strengthen our capacity to serve sincerely and diligently. Ameen.
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." - The Quran, 63:10
They ask you what they should spend in charity. Inform them: 'Whatever you spend with a good heart, give it to parents, relatives, orphans, the helpless, and travelers in need. Whatever good you do, God is aware of it.' - The Quran, 2:215
Whatever good you spend is for your own good, when you spend nothing except out of seeking the Countenance of God. Whatever good you spend will be repaid to you, and you will not be wronged. - The Quran, 2:268
One who gives one's wealth to purify one's self and does not expect any reward from anyone, but seeks only the Countenance of the Lord, the Most Exalted, and surely, soon will they attain satisfaction (in entering the Kingdom). - The Quran, 92:18-21
There are seven group of people whom God will draw under His own shadow, on the Day of Judgment when there will be no other shadow; one of them a person who has given alms and concealed it, so that his left hand knew not what his right hand did.
The best of alms-giving is that which springs from the heart, and is uttered by the lips to soften the wounds of the injured. - Sayings of the Prophet, peace and blessings of Allah be upon him
