One of the best means of contributing to society is through charity. In Islam, charity is emphasized and given great importance to helping others who are underprivileged. It also helps to realize that it is possible for all the people with privileges to share their blessings with others in times of chaos and uncertainty. It gives deeper meaning to life and fulfills the purpose of being a responsible citizen and above all human being. Quick Action Foundation has been adding value to the lives of people by becoming an essential part of their lives. They have been an inspiration for the community by giving back to the community in the form of charity.
