Feed ten fasting families for a month
Yemen is experiencing the worst humanitarian crisis in the world, where malnourishment threatens the lives of 2 million children, and has already killed 85,000.
The devastating effect of the war in Syria has battered the food production system, leaving a third of Syrians without a secure source of food.
Over one million Rohingya refugees escaped brutal violence and persecution, the majority have fled to Bangladesh, where 40% of the population already does not have enough food.
One thing is clear; the need is incredible, and it can often feel overwhelming. But our Feed the Fasting project makes it easy to make a difference this Ramadan.
By feeding just one family your blessings will be multiplied this Ramadan
When you donate just £700, you can help ten families of between five - seven people to thrive this Ramadan, by providing them with a food parcel packed with essential and nutritious food.
“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)
Each parcel is tailored to the local country and dietary needs, but on average they contain 50 kilograms of nutritious food. Each pack contains several kilograms of staples such as sugar, rice, and flour, as well as local preferences, such as chickpeas, lentils, tea, milk powder or pasta.
Last year, you provided nutritious food parcels to 63,000 people in 13 countries, providing them with iftar for the entire month.
This year, we’re focusing on eight countries that desperately need your help. One donation of £700 can make a difference to ten families this Ramadan in Bangladesh, Lebanon, Iraq, Pakistan, Palestine, Somalia, Syria or Yemen. Multiply the rewards of this blessed, holy month.
Many are already vulnerable communities that are hosting people who have fled violence; others are witnessing a high number of returnees, and more, still, are struggling communities experiencing poverty, conflict and food insecurity.
To a hungry family struggling to find food for iftar, one simple donation can be a lifeline.
