The Social Relief Net

The Social Relief Net

From as far back as the 1940's the ASJA has been involved in assisting financially in the area of natural disasters whether at the local or international levels. Severe drought at that time in India was so overwhelming that it became a matter of international concern and the ASJA contributed significantly to the Indian Famine relief Fund.

The ASJA also contributed heavily to the earthquake victims in Pakistan in the late 1970's and also later the earthquake of Iran both of which claimed thousands of lives and left thousands homeless. Within more recent times the ASJA Disaster Relief Fund has been able to bring relief to millions who have been displaced through the Tsunami Disaster in South East Asia and more so in Indonesia. Contributions have also been made to help in assisting victims of the Earthquake Disaster in Pakistan last year.
