Healthy Generations Project
Leading a healthy life is a blessing which every human wants to enjoy. In this regard, we execute medical relief projects in Africa. Among our various medical relief projects, we have now focused on circumcising boys in safe hygienic conditions in response to huge demands that we have received from various countries.
In most parts of Africa, circumcision is unfortunately a painful and risky practice. However, there are people who practise circumcision with local techniques hoping to gain its medical benefits. Otherwise, children may face the risk of contracting serious infections and even kidney loss. In Africa, circumcision holds a greater importance than one would predict. Considering this need, UICT have started healthy circumcision organisations under the theme of Healthy Generations Project. Through the kind support of our donors, every year we circumcise up to 5000 boys in at least 4 different countries.
In every country that we have conducted our medical programs using modern techniques, circumcision has become a festive occasion for boys and a cost-free convenience for families. Whilst at the same time our volunteer medical teams are teaching local medical staff new technological methods and raising awareness on the matter.
While future is expected to look brighter for Africa, the time of primitive circumcision methods is expected to come to an end. Now pictures of healthy, smiling faces in circumcision celebrations have displayed tremendous hopes for locals.
All your Qurbanis you send year-round to Africa, be it Wajib, Vowed, Aqeeqah,Shukr and other nafl ones, are done strictly according to Islamic principles and and are distributed in destitute regions of Africa.
Zakâh is to give one-fortieth (2.5%) of one’s wealth annually for the pleasure of Allah. You can discharge your Zakah to those in need.
