Volunteers ventured out into stormy conditions to provide assistance in flood affected areas

Hurricane Harvey has been referred to as a "1,000-year flood," with its 50 inches of rainfall exceeding all records for the continental USA. It is estimated that damage from the storm will surpass that of hurricanes Sandy (New Jersey 2012) and Katrina (Louisiana 2005) combined. Volunteers have worked to reach Jamati members and others affected by the flooding, and to provide assistance with the recovery process.

The Institute of Ismaili Studies is holding a book launch for Arabic, Persian and Gujarati Manuscripts: The Hamdani Collection at 8:15 PM (BST) on Tuesday, 18 October 2011. The event will feature Professor Abbas Hamdani and Dr François de Blois.
