Over the past several years, we have seen the California wildfire season have increasingly intense and destructive fires.  Massive fires can destroy thousands of structures in a short period of time, creating chaos and great need for thousands of families that become suddenly displaced, and leaving entire communities in need of completely rebuilding.

 

Hidaya Foundation, being headquartered in California, does its best in such times to reach out using our network to help our fellow neighbors in their time of need.

Over the past week, the massive Carr Fire in Redding, CA has burned over 110,000 acres, an area more than 3 times the size of San Francisco.  In its wake, the fire has destroyed nearly 1,500 structures, mostly homes, and threatens more than 2,500 more as firefighters work to contain it.  Nearly 40,000 residents have been forced to evacuate and are unsure of what is to come in the coming days.

Hidaya Foundation, has been in contact with volunteers and organizations in Redding who are working towards the relief efforts.  We are collecting funds and will be distributing to volunteer networks who are providing food, clothing, housing, transportation, counseling, and more to affected families.


In October 2017, a dozen fires burned simultaneously in Northern California throughout several counties, scorching hundreds of thousands of acres, including entire neighborhoods.  More than 40 people died and nearly 6,000 homes and businesses were destroyed.

Hidaya Foundation, collected funds to support some of our neighbors in  the Santa Rosa area in their time of need.
