Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said, "The believers in their mutual kindness, compassion and sympathy are just like one body. When one of the limbs suffers, the whole body responds to it with wakefulness and fever".
We are glad to announce phase 2 of You Are Not Alone initiative to support the community amid the current, Coronavirus (COV-ID) situation.
COVID-19 Today in the Community
On March 10th, a State of Emergency was declared in Massachusetts to support the Commonwealth’s response to the outbreak of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) infection.
As of April 8th, 2020, there are 16,790 confirmed COVID-19 cases in the state of Massachusetts. Globally, the coronavirus has infected more than 1.5 million people, with nearly 420,000 cases in the United States.
As per guidance from the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and local public health officials, MA state and city government officials have issued the following strict measures for social and physical distancing among many:
Cease of all in-person operation for non-essential businesses
An emergency order extending the closure of all Massachusetts public and private schools until May 4th
A stay-at-home advisory since March 24th for all MA Residents
A Boston city curfew from 9pm-6am, and closing of all parks and recreation centers
Use of face masks to cover mouth and nose
Non-essential work and travel, and schooling has been suspended by the majority and carried on remotely as an alternative.
Many community members are suffering financially, physically, and mentally due to the coronavirus infection and its consequences.
Families need help to feed their children daily, pay their rent, and utilities.
Students forced to leave university campuses, alone, are struggling to pay their rent and be able to afford groceries.
Phase 2: You Are Not Alone Campaign
The COVID-19 Crisis has impacted many of us, with no signs of slowing down as of recently. Your family at ISBCC wants you to know that YOU ARE NOT ALONE!
We want to HELP! As soon as the COVID-19 crisis hit, we made sure to create an initiative to support those in need and to ensure everyone that they are NOT ALONE: “You Are Not Alone” Campaign Phase 1, supporting families and students in need. WE ARE HERE TO HELP.
Alhamdullilah (God be Praised) with the generous donation from many kind people like YOU we reached our goal in raising funds to support families and students in record time! May Allah bless you and accept from you.
We are currently working with ICNA relief and MCSS to make sure that we can confidently roll out the program, recruit volunteers, and assist people signing up for help.
NOW we launch the second wave of this drive. We realized the dire need for further support for community members, and so we are launching PHASE 2 of “You Are Not Alone” Campaign in which funds for hygiene, utilities, rent, food assistance and more will be raised for those in need.
We encourage you to continue to give to this and similar aid campaigns.
Together, fortified by our faith in the Most Merciful and Most Compassionate and His support, we will make it through these difficult times.
Be safe, May God protect you and keep you well!
