YOUR DONATIONS DISBURSED TO FAMILIES OF VICTIMS ON MARCH 18, 2017!


Dear friends,

Assalamu alaikum (Peace be with you)

On Friday, March 17, 2017, members of DawaNet set-out to complete their official second trip to Sainte Foy, Quebec City. Since last meeting with victim families, including injured victims, DawaNet's Canada Zakat team raised over $400,000 in generous funds towards those affected by the Quebec City shooting rampage, which left 6 men killed and 19 injured after a gunman opened fire on January 29, 2017 at the Centre Culturel Islamique de Québec (CCIQ).

DawaNet’s reunion with the affected families and individuals was memorable, because we had the opportunity to finally distribute the funds collected by all of you caring donours.

Friday, March 17, 2017: Visit to the CCIQ Mosque


Once members of our team touched-down in Quebec City, we first headed to the CCIQ Mosque, where our team met with Mosque staff. Both organizations, DawaNet & CCIQ, engaged in a program to learn about each other’s groups, as well as exchange words on the tragedy.

Despite the attack having occurred just 1 month prior, we were humbled to witness the amount of women, men and children still attending prayers, classes and educational sessions held at the CCIQ. We were pleasantly surprised to see their unwavering sense of hope, strength and positivity following the vicious  attack on their place of worship.

During the presentation, DawaNet offered words of solidarity to CCIQ officials and local leadership, whom also attended the program. We also discussed the unprecedented GoFundMe campaign launched by DawaNet, including our funds dispersal plan for the affected families.

Saturday, March 18, 2017: Visit to Families of Deceased & Injured Victims


The next morning, DawaNet team and Sheikh Daood Butt started their tour of victim family residences with the assistance of CCIQ Mosque interpreters. DawaNet met with the families of: Aboubakr Thabti, Mamadou Tanou Barry, Ibrahima Barry, Khaled Belkacemi, Azzedine Soufiane and Abdelkarim Hassane. Each of these families received their portion of the raised funds. Afterward, we visited those critically injured. Both Aymen Derbali and Said El-Amari were seen at the Hôpital de l'Enfant-Jésus. Also injured, Mohamed Khabar, was visited in his home. Nizar Ghlai and Said Akjour were met Saturday evening at the CCIQ.

These individuals were considered donour recipients based on the severity of their injuries.


Once amassing over $400,000 towards the Quebec City shooting crisis, DawaNet understood its responsibility to distribute the funds both promptly and fairly.

To fulfill the purpose of our campaign, we utilized the assistance of accountants, legal experts, and knowledgeable professionals from charity organizations to decide the overall distribution criteria required to release the large sum.

After much consultation and deliberation, DawaNet divided the funds equally across all affected families. Funds had been distributed regardless of family size, number of dependants, victim or spouse employment. Any similar factors have not affected the overall distribution method.


Here is the breakdown of funds dispersal we executed:

**$41, 143 was disbursed to each of the 6 families of the deceased: Aboubakr Thabti, Mamadou Tanou Barry, Ibrahima Barry, Khaled Belkacemi, Azzedine Soufiane and Abdelkarim Hassane

**$41, 143 was disbursed to each of the 2 critically injured victims: Aymen Derbali and Said El-Amari

**$10,286 was disbursed to each of 3 other seriously injured: Mohamed Khabar, Nizar Ghlai and Said Akjour


On Saturday, cheques were given to victim families, as well as to those injured. We were truly not expecting the sheer joy and surprise displayed on the faces of the families once receiving their respective donation.

While they were aware of start-up money being raised for victims of the Quebec City tragedy, their spirits were raised when we explained the generous amount being extended from the campaign.


While wiping away tears, each spouse, including family members, took a few moments to directly and personally thank all of YOU donours. They described their shock, happiness and gratitude for such giving donours who contributed to this cause.

The last event of the day on Saturday: A community event was organized CCIQ at the mosque in the evening where Sheikh Daood Butt and Taha Ghayyur from DawaNet offered spiritual guidance and words of advice to those present.  Members of the CCIQ offered deep gratitude to the generous contributions of approximately 6,000 caring donours.


DawaNet is grateful to the hospitable CCIQ staff for organizing discussion-meetings with Sainte-Foy community members and local leadership on the Friday and Saturday evenings of our trip. We also thank the media for communicating details related to victim stories, testimonials and GoFundMe campaign launch to the wider public.

Mors inportantly, DawaNet would not have been able to facilitate any victim assistance without such incredible donours. You have contributed to a significant campaign that won’t be forgotten by affected families and community members alike. Your contribution also helps preserve victims’ stories, memories and legacy. Due to your generosity, victim families can forego monetary struggle while rebuilding their lives one step at a time.

On behalf of our Toronto-based organization committed to community service, we sincerely thank you!

Canada Zakat extends heartfelt and deep condolences to the victims and their families impacted by today's tragic event in Toronto. We are committed to helping our neighbors in need and have organized a campaign to raise funds for the families and victims of the Toronto Young and Finch Incident.

Canada Zakat is a project of DawaNet and we believe charity starts at home. We encourage charitable donations be collected and distributed locally to empower Canadians to help their fellow neighbours in need. Please join us to help the victims and their families though this difficult time, our GoFundMe page is listed below.
https://www.gofundme.com/TorontoVanAttack

This fund is being setup in response to the tragic incident that occurred earlier this afternoon involving a rental van that plowed through pedestrians in the Yonge & Finch area of North York, Toronto, killing 9 people and injuring around 16 people.

This fund is being setup by Canada Zakat (a Project of www.dawanet.ca). Funds are being raised for funeral expenses of the victims who lost their lives. Canada Zakat helped raise and distribute over $800,000 to the victims and their families of last year’s mosque shooting in Quebec.

Canada Zakat is also exploring other ways of assisting those affected.

Hello, and may peace be upon you!

Happy Holidays from the DawaNet (Canada Zakat) family to yours! We hope you are enjoying this wonderful time of the year with your loved ones.

Thank you anyone that donated generously to our campaign to secure Aymen Derbali a safe, and accessible home. Aymen's story was cover in many media outlets, including:

- BuzzFeed: https://www.buzzfeed.com/ishmaeldaro/aymen-derbali?utm_term=.qloQYVP71

- CBC: http://www.cbc.ca/beta/news/canada/montreal/aymen-derbali-crowdfunding-campaign-1.4457487

- Global News: https://globalnews.ca/news/3924608/hes-a-canadian-hero-muslim-community-raises-money-for-paralyzed-mosque-shooting-victim/

- Al-Jazeera: http://www.aljazeera.com/news/2017/12/canadians-rally-support-quebec-mosque-attack-hero-171220153135554.html

In just 5 days, we raised a quarter of our goal: $100,000! However, we still have a long way to go.

Aymen needs $400,000 to secure a home that will be accessible to his needs. He currently lives in a rehabilitation centre and can only visit his family once a week because the apartment they live in is inaccessible. While we spend time with our families this holiday season, let’s come together to unite Aymen with his family in a safe and accessible home.

If you have already donated, thank you so much. If you are able to donate a little extra to this campaign during this holiday season, that will be greatly appreciated.

Also, we are kindly requesting if you could please help us spread this message with your family and friends. Just copy/paste below text to any messaging groups (WhatsApps, Telegram, Kik, Facebook, etc) you're part of. Please share this on the rest of your social media accounts as well:

Aymen Derbali was left paralyzed after a shooter went on a rampage at a Quebec City Mosque this Jan 29, 2017. He will never walk again. He is only able to visit his wife and 3 children once a week because the apartment building he lives in is inaccessible to his needs. We need to raise $400,000 within the next month to help secure him a safe and accessible home. #UnitedForAymen #WeCanDoBetter

For more information, and to donate, visit: www.LaunchGood.com/Aymen

We sincerely thank you for your help in spreading the message on behalf of Amen. Thank you for uniting with Aymen, and let’s help reunite this hero with his family by the new year!

Dear everyone!

After the shooter went on a rampage at the Quebec City Mosque on Jan. 29, 2017, hundreds of caring Canadians like you came together to donate a sum of $402,173 to support the survivors and families of the victims of this terror attack.

Now almost a year later, DawaNet team comes to you again with an appeal for Aymen Derbali , who saved the lives of many on January 29, 2017, when he deliberately took bullets during the shooting at the Quebec City mosque, which left him paralyzed.

He spent two months in a coma and will never walk again. The fragments of two bullets remain lodged in Derbali's spinal cord.

He is a father of three and currently lives in an apartment that is inaccessible to his needs. He is only able to spend one day a week with his family because his home is inaccessible.

With an accessible home, he will finally be able to come home to his wife and children.

Unfortunately, the government assistance that he is currently receiving is minimal and temporary.

Now, we appeal to you donate to our new campaign so we can provide him with a safe and accessible home.

**United for Aymen: Quebec Mosque Shooting Hero**

My God's bless you all for bringing relief and joy to Aymen and his struggling family.

The amount of Islamophobia I have heard in comments in the newspaper as well as the poor thinking of folks attached to conspiracy theories about ordinary citizens is amazing to me and makes me wonder what the heck is going on in Alberta. Do folks really believe they have to "keep fighting" as one comment put it. The question is what are y'all fighting? Why are Muslims being targeted in this horrific way? And do you not think you should fight prejudice and poor thinking above everything else?

We must all take responsibility for our words, thoughts and actions. Carelessness is as bad as it gets for those of us who are not bigots or fear-mongers. Silence in the face of fake news or bigotry or bullying is almost as bad. Our sisters and brothers of all ethnic and national backgrounds and of whatever religious persuasion or sexual identity ARE our sisters and brothers and deserve our love and respect. When we can, we must also protect and support them. To those who have lost friends and loved ones, I share your grief . . . even your anger.

It makes me sick to my stomach that some one could do such a brutal act of violence, specially considering the attack was on peaceful Canadians gathering for a time of prayer. Unfortunately because I found out too late, It would seem that I can no longer donate to this gofundme effort. Would any one have a suggestion on where else I could give a useful donation?
