Muslim World League Launches Emergency Virus Aid to 16 Countries

The Muslim World League (MWL), along with international organizations, has introduced emergency initiatives aimed against the coronavirus pandemic in 16 countries.

The Emergency Plan is in line with UN, WHO and governments’ actions. The Emergency Plan applies to the steps taken in the beneficiary countries.

16 Countries Are?

Countries included in the plan’s first phase were Pakistan, Kashmir, South Africa, Malawi, Senegal, Chad, Djibouti, Sudan, Somalia, Nigeria, Afghanistan, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, Spain, Italy and Serbia.

Spokesperson Abdulwahab Al-Shehri said that the MWL is implementing the comprehensive plan to minimize the impact of the pandemic on countries in Asia, Africa and Europe.

“The initiative’s first phase will cover 16 Muslim and non-Muslim countries, going from the league’s approach based on the noble Islamic values of righteousness and benevolence,” he said.

Sheikh Mohammed bin Abdulkarim Al-Issa, MWL secretary-general, has asked the heads of the league’s offices around the world to directly cooperate with international organizations and governments to implement the initiative, he added.

Al-Shehri said that the plan is being implemented through direct financial support, deliveries of medical equipment, and the supply of health, preventive and educational needs for health centers and hospitals, as well as food aid for vulnerable people.

The MWL will support governments following WHO recommendations to limit the spread of the virus, such as locking down cities and home quarantine, by providing food to poor and disadvantaged communities, remote villages, orphans, elders and sick people unable to leave their houses.
