The Cholistan Desert also locally known as Rohi (روہی), is a large desert in the southern part of Punjab. The nearest big city is Bahawalpur. During summer temperatures can surpass 50°C (122 °F). Which can be unbearable heat for humans and animals. The area has not seen proper rainfall for nearly two decades. This has resulted in the longest drought this area has seen.
Right now, Cholistan is going through one of its toughest times. Animals are dying and malnutrition is taking human lives to the edge of death. As Muslims, it is our duty to take care of the vulnerable no matter where they are. Throughout Ramadan, you have shown generosity to help feed the fasting, you donated your Zakat to provide financial aid for the widows and orphans. Let’s continue the goodness and help provide life-saving clean drinking water for the people of Cholistan.
