Help support MAA in their efforts to provide much needed support to Australian Farmers.

    [/vc_cta][vc_column_text]With Australia’s eastern states facing their worst drought in 400 years, local Muslim communities are doing what they can to support Australia’s struggling farmers. Last weekend, a group of Muslim charities and community groups pitched in to deliver 33,000 kgs of hay bales to farmers in Goondiwindi, which sits on the border between NSW and Queensland.   “A representative [of the farmers] explained to us how important this hay is going to be for the farmers,” said Yusuf Katri of the Muslim Charitable Foundation. “Obviously it’s not enough, but they’re going to try their best to distribute it on an even basis to all those farmers who are in need.”   The Muslim community has taken a number of steps in recent months to assist farmers struggling in drought affected areas. Last month, the Grand Mufti of Australia led the Muslim prayer for rain, a tradition of supplicating God for rain in times of dire need. MAA National also delivered 100 food hampers to farmers in Rowena, NSW. To support MAA National’s efforts for farmer relief, visit their website at maanational.org.au.
