Update (30-08-20): Alhumdulillah, Rs 64,200 have been collected for the marriage. The family also requested my friend if solar panels can be arranged for their house as their electricity connection was disconnected due to non-payment of bills and currently they don’t have electricity at their home. The cost of two solar panels, which is Rs 30,000 has also been arranged, thus a total of Rs 94,200 has been transferred to my friend’s account. My friend will discuss with them if this amount should be utilized on solar panels or there is a more dire need. He is very thankful to all the donors. JazakAllah khair for your contributions.
