Ismail ibn Musa Menk a famous religious scholar from Zimbabwe, recently visited the Sindh province of Pakistan as a delegate of the UK-based charity organization, the Abdullah Aid Charity.
Mufti Menk shared a video with his followers on Instagram and showed homeless flood victims taking refuge at the riverbanks.
He urged his followers to donate, so the homeless flood affectees can be offered tents as shelter. He encouraged people to donate £100 per tent to either the Abdullah Aid Charity or any other reliable charity they want to.
Considering the millions of displaced people in Pakistan and the urgent need for aid, Mufti Menk apologized to his followers for not catering to any unrelated meetings at the moment.

33 Million People Displaced in Pakistan
Currently, people need shelter, food, clean drinking water, toilets, and medicines, according to authorities.
Record monsoon rains combined with glacial melt in northern Pakistan have triggered the flooding that has impacted nearly 33 million people in the South Asian nation of 220 million, sweeping away homes, commercial buildings, farms, livestock, crops, bridges, and roads, with damages estimated at $30 billion.
While the destruction is evident, there are steps being taken to mitigate the effects of the heavy floods.
