Management of Operations

Suwani, Head of Operations

"When I first joined GK, I only heard about it's vision and mission of helping uplift the dignity of the poor. However, when I went into the GK community, I saw many of our brothers who need our helping hand. GK is very meaningful to us Muslims. Just like the saying in our Qur-an "khoirunnaas an fa'u linnaas" - what is best for men is for all of us to be brethren to one another and to do good for everyone. Based on the Qur-an sayings, I pray that GK will always be a mission that is like a prayer to God."

"I have been often asked why am I helping out in a foreign land. My reply? I have always thought that helping those who are in need is something that is part of our responsibility to a world we all live in, regardless of nationality, race, faith, culture. We are all brethren sharing the same world."
