The Prophet PBUH said: Whoever gives food to a fasting person to break his fast, shall have his sins forgiven, and he will be saved from the Fire of Hell, and he shall have the same reward as the fasting person, without his reward being diminished at all." (Ibn Khuzaymah)
This Ramadan will be a trying one for many of us. Allah will test our patience, our steadfastness, and our obedience to fulfil His command.
It is hard enough for those of us struggling with a changing world. But when the dusk adhan calls out around the world, many others will face a much harsher struggle.
One in nine people will not have enough food to break their fast this Ramadan. To a hungry family struggling to find food for iftar, your donation is a lifeline. Now is the time to give.
Why Feed the Fasting with Human Appeal?
Because we know what we’re doing. We only distribute iftar and food parcels in countries where we have a vast network, and comprehensive experience. We help your donation to go further by getting the best prices and quality of food, which means that more of your donation goes directly to those who need it most.
Our food parcels are tailored to the diets and preferences of each community, and contain an average of 50kg of nutritious food, helping families to stay nourished through Ramadan.
Entrust your charity to us. Right now, we’re working day and night to make sure that the most vulnerable are supported through this extremely difficult Ramadan. Your donation is a sign of trust and faith in us, and that is something we value beyond words, and that we're honoured to accept with responsibility under Allah’s watch.
If you want to feed fasting families, making sure your donation is in capable hands, that know how to make your money go further, then entrust Human Appeal with your charity.
Our work so far
We’ve been feeding the fasting for over 29 years, and last year, with your support, we helped 43,230 people to break their fast.
You provided hot meals to over 20,000 people, and food parcels to a huge 22,342 people, lasting the entire month of Ramadan.
You also provided 14,000 people with food through Zakat ul-Fitr, helping even more people to eat securely after Ramadan ended.
Going hungry in Ramadan
One in every nine people will go to bed hungry this Ramadan. That’s over 820 million people who don’t have enough food to eat, and that’s before we consider the current food scarcity hitting people across the globe.
It can seem like an overwhelming number. But give, now, and you can completely change the prospect of Ramadan for another person or family. Just £5 will allow us to provide a hot iftar meal to a fasting person and £70 will feed a fasting family for the entire month.
Now is the time to give, to make sure vulnerable people have enough food this Ramadan, multiplying your blessings by providing food to a fasting person.
Human Appeal is working hard to deliver your Feed the Fasting donations before the month of Ramadan ends. Donate to help a fasting family eat nutritious meals for a month as early as possible to ensure that your donation is distributed before the end of Ramadan. Late donations may end up being distributed on or after Eid, helping a vulnerable family to have secure access to nutritious meals.
Last year, Human Appeal spoke to 70-year-old Hawa at a camp for displaced people in Somalia. The grandmother had been forced to flee her home after her son, a father-of-seven, and her two brothers were killed in a dispute with a rival clan. The family lost all their cattle in the conflict, and with them, their livelihood.
With her grandchildren in tow, Hawa journeyed through harsh terrain, bypassing dangerous areas held by al-Shabab, eventually reaching Baidoa some 80 miles away.
The journey was terrifying, but Hawa knew she must leave and get her grandchildren to safety. But their lives had been upended, and Ramadan promised to be difficult.
Through your generous donations, we were able to provide Hawa with a nutritious food parcel that would support her and her grandchildren throughout Ramadan, allowing her to fulfil her spiritual obligation with peace of mind.
Your support allows people who have survived incredible hardship to fast without worrying about securing their next meal.
One donation was all it took to lighten Hawa’s load last Ramadan, providing her family with food for the entire month. Increase your blessings by helping us to provide iftar to more vulnerable people this month. Now is the time to give.
Human Appeal assists vulnerable people in nine countries worldwide, both during emergencies when clean water, shelter and food is essential, and throughout the year, helping them to develop sustainable livelihoods, secure access to clean water and improve educational opportunities.
