Hadith-e-Kisa Blanket Drive: The World Federation Distributes 1,830 blankets – Punjab, Pakistan

Winters in Pakistan are extremely cold and dry, lasting from December through to February. In December 2014, The World Federation through its Hadith-e-Kisa Blanket Drive distributed 1,830 ‘Razai’ blankets in the districts of Dera Ghazi Khan and Muzaffargarh in Pakistan’s Punjab province. In 2013, these areas were affected by floods and remain underdeveloped.

A ‘Razai’ is a traditional blanket usually used in Afghanistan, Iran, Pakistan, North India and Nepal which is similar to a duvet or a comforter. Razais usually have a cotton, silk or velvet cover which is then stuffed with cotton wool. Air trapped in the cotton wool has an insulating effect and the razai therefore provides a lot of warmth in very cold regions.  

The cost of each blanket was $11 USD which was purchased locally. During the distribution, Hadith-e-Kisa was recited by our volunteers and the beneficiaries to remember the warmth and love of the Ahlul Bayt (as).

The World Federation takes this opportunity to thank the donor who sponsored the 2014 Hadith-E-Kisa Blanket Drive in Pakistan with a generous contribution of $20,000 USD.

HADITH-E-KISA BLANKET DRIVE

The ‘Hadith-E-Kisa Blanket Drive’ is a year-round initiative that provides warm blankets and fuel supplies to those affected by the freezing temperatures of the areas in which they live in. These individuals and families usually cannot afford to purchase blankets or fuel to keep them warm in the winter months. Your donation will go a long way in helping families stay warm.
