  1. The AKDN is ever present everyday in poverty stricken countries, so many Ismaili’s volunteers are also at all places where catastrophe’s happen rendering thousands homeless and help to supply food, water, etc.. It is His Highness’s 1st priority to fight poverty and is an ongoing process everyday. This year alone, has had so many catastrophe’s never seen before, earthquakes, tsunami’s, hurricane’s, volcano’s erupting, boats sinking, planes crashing and much more, the likes of which have never happened before and takes longer for third world countries to come up again, but AKDN is always there to help.
