Islamic Relief Canada Support the Families of the Victims of the Quebec Mosque Shooting
On January 29, 2017, a tragic mass shooting was perpetrated in a mosque in Quebec City, which took the lives of six innocent worshippers and injured 19 others.
These six men that were killed were between the ages of 39 and 60, and had come to Canada in search of a better life for their families.
In a horrific turn of events, they each left behind a wife and children, who became single mothers and the sole breadwinner of their families overnight.
These six women continue to live the real life consequences of hate and violence, as they became single mothers and the sole breadwinner of their families on that tragic night.
To honour the legacy of those we lost, we are committed to providing sustainable monthly financial support so that these mothers can build a better future for their children.
Donations are Zakat eligible.
100% of all donations will go directly to support the needs of these six widows as they raise their orphaned children and youth.
Any amount that you can give monthly will be pooled together and distributed equitably between each family to provide for every child.
The orphans who are eligible to receive assistance are between the age of 2 – 18 years old, and all are established as not being able to provide for themselves.
Please donate any amount you can commit monthly.
Let us show them they are not alone.
