CBMC Covid-19 Response – Immediate assistance for Canada & Bangladesh

====================================================================
Dear friends of CBMC,

Assalamu alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuh

We hope each of you is safe and healthy. Like you, we are quite worried about the rapid spread of COVID-19 around the world and Canada.
As of April 12th, Canada has 24,292 confirmed cases with 713 deaths; while Ottawa has 561 confirmed cases and 11 deaths.
Canada Bangladesh Muslim Community (CBMC), in addition to the regular prayers to Almighty for the grace of healing and protection, is attempting to do its best within its limited capacity.

CBMC’s Executive Committee has begun to raise money to respond to the crisis in its own humble way to the extent possible. Despite being in isolation and having to follow quarantine measures strictly, CBMC’s Team will be launching the following projects:

(1) Immediate fast tracked donations to destitute impacted people in Bangladesh who are no longer able to earn a living wage. We have our reliable partner Mr. Taher [Surovi] on the ground who will make verifiable donations of food packets to needy families. Just $10 can feed a family for a week! Now is the time to stand by these people. Our executive committee has already raised $1800 internally and will send this money in installments swiftly over the next few days.

(2) In collaboration with our long standing partnership with Human Concern International, we would like to financially support HCI with their planned local efforts related to COVID-19.

(3) Information / Referral services rendered Virtual/Online for any assistance, specifically for application to government benefits like CERB, business loans, wage subsidies, etc. We have experts within the committee and can also refer to other organizations in Ottawa, as appropriate.

This is where you, our patrons, come in to play a pivotal role by responding to our appeal at this extraordinary time to “do your bit” in an uncertain future. You might recall, recently we have informed you that we have already canceled all our upcoming programs, including our Annual Iftar Mahfeel. We thought it would be wonderful if we could channel the money that we generally raise during Ramadam for Iftar to the present urgent needs of the community. Since you are a contributor to our Iftar Mahfeel, we are requesting you to make a donation that would enable us to undertake some of the activities we have outlined above. Through Human Concern International, our partner, upon your request we would make arrangements for a tax credit for your donation.
You can also designate your zakat funds to our initiative, and we will mark them for zakat allocation to the destitute Muslims in Bangladesh through our reliable agents.

Please think about it, spread the word around, and help CBMC reach its goal through your generous contribution. We are hoping that you too are feeling the same – utterly hapless with a strong sense of “doing something” at this crisis. Your prompt and positive response to our appeal is the key to our success.

Anyone requiring assistance can contact ottawacbmc@gmail.com or via Facebook messenger from https://www.facebook.com/CBMCOttawa/

CBMC Executive Committee has decided to cancel this year’s Annual Iftar Mahfeel

===============================================
“Worship during the time of tribulation and confusion is like migration to me” (Muslim).

Dear brothers and sisters,

Assalamualaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh

You must know by now, to further contain the spread of COVID -19, the Ontario Government has ordered the mandatory closure of non-essential workplaces effective as of 24 March 2020. This closure will be in effect for 14 days with the possibility of extending this order as the situation evolves.

Since all interactions with others should be treated as a potential source of transmission, even when there are no visible signs of being affected, we must take responsibility to strictly follow the instructions.

Under the circumstances, CBMC Executive Committee has decided to cancel this year’s Annual Iftar Mahfeel that was scheduled to be held on May 02, 2020, at SNMC.
It’s regrettable but we feel that we must do this – even though it means the breaking of CBMC’s 25 years’ tradition of organizing Iftar Mahfeel.

In the meantime, let us continue to practice social-distancing, to the greatest possible. It is possible that we might feel a little cooped-up and restless. Let us find ways to read, reflect and ponder – remember the creator, and make DUA for all of us.

Dua for protection from diseases
اللَّهُمَّ إِنِّي أَعُوذُ بِكَ مِنَ الْبَرَصِ، وَالْجُنُونِ، وَالْجُذَامِ، وَمِنْ سَيِّئِ الأَسْقَامِ
Allahumma inni a’uzubika minal baros, wal junuun wal juzzam, wa min sayyi’il-asqam
O Allah, I seek refuge in You from leprosy, madness, elephantiasis, and evil diseases
(Sunan Abi Daud)

May ALLAH SWT give us the strength to offload our stress and make the most of this extraordinary and uncertain circumstances.

Stay tuned, Insh’Allah we shall get back to you as soon we know about our next plans. Thank you for your support and patience!

“Possible long-term neurological impacts of the covid-19 virus”

As Salamu-Alaikum-wa-Rahmatullahe-wa-Barakatehu.

This important research and message is being shared on behalf of our promising youth leader Ariana Pritha.
“Possible long-term neurological impacts of the covid-19 virus”

Sincerely,

CBMC Executive Committee

Assalamulaikum everyone,

During the break, I have been researching about coronavirus and I realized that not a lot of people are aware of the possible long-term neurological impacts of the virus especially in children. That is why I made a video on it which I have added a link to (https://drive.google.com/file/d/19VTb2ocBcC4RfFWHQ5C2Fq8_akt4aoLF/view?usp=sharing) with English slides and Bangla audio to raise more awareness and to bring the chronic illnesses that could potentially come with corona into the public discussion. I hope everyone is staying healthy during the social distancing / self-isolation period and inshallah this pandemic will be cured soon.

Warm regards,

Ariana Pritha
