Relief & Aid Activities
The IYM also runs the "Needy
and Orphan Sponsoring" project. Although this project
is relatively small, it has proven effective.
Its mechanism is simple: Any person
wishing to join needs to commit him/herself to a set
amount of money ($20, $15, $10, $5, $etc.) that he/she
has to pay at the beginning of every month. The amount
of money collected from all the different members is
used to sponsor orphans, mainly in Tripoli - Lebanon.
The good thing about this new mechanism is that the
member is not sponsoring a specific orphan, though he/she
can if they wish too. This saves the orphan all the
trouble when the sponsorer decides to stop his donations.
Another advantage is that the $30 or $40 per month that
is given to the orphan's guardian(s) is not donated
by just one person, rather by 3, 4 or even 5 people.
Thus the responsibility is shared by more than one person.
Another important advantage is
that the money can be used for other than orphan sponsoring,
when needed. Previous other-than-orphan-sponsoring experiences
included covering the costs for medicines and/or medical
operations, subsidising one student at Al-Azhar in Cairo.
In addition to larger scale donations, such as contributing
in relief projects for Muslims in Bosnia, Chechnya,
Somalia, Lebanon, Algeria.. etc.
Money for Zakat, Zakat al-Fitr
and Qurbans (Adahis) is also collected at certain times.
