John O’Brien, Managing Director of Mosaic, has commended Islamic Relief’s work in Pakistan.
Mosaic is a charity founded by HRH Prince of Wales to challenge the issues facing young Muslims today. After visiting Islamic Relief’s (IR) flood response programme in Pakistan, Mosaic’s Managing Director, John O’Brien paid tribute to Islamic Relief’s dedication and organisational skills:
“Personally I found witnessing your work extremely moving, challenging and inspiring. Seeing the work, the conditions, the resilience of people who had lost so much, the can-do attitude of them, matched by the must-do attitude of yourselves, it was simply humbling.”
The representative of the Prince of Wales’ charities last week visited Londa village in Khyber Pakhtunkwha, inviting a team of 14 business delegates as they visited Islamic Relief’s projects in the North-West of Pakistan.
“The international business leaders that I took with me all remarked that Islamic Relief is a truly world-class operation and that your people and organisational skills were second-to-none.”
Supporters of Islamic Relief can be confident that their money is going to help the most vulnerable communities in Pakistan, like the village of Londa, where IR is reconstructing homes and a health centre, as well as refurbishing a damaged school.
“My sincere thanks to those that I had the privilege of being with this week,” said O’Brien, “they, and no doubt countless others in villages and projects throughout the country, give enormous hope - and when we have hope - anything is possible.”
Islamic Relief has so far assisted over 150,000 people in Pakistan, supplying clean drinking water, food, healthcare and hygiene and cooking supplies. The focus has now shifted towards training local residents to reconstruct destroyed infrastructure, empowering them to rebuild communities that were affected by the floods.
To help provide families affected by the floods with the tools they need to survive, as well as training to help them to rebuild their homes and lives, donate to Islamic Relief’s Pakistan appeal.
