The month of Ramadan is a month of blessing and mercy, where Muslims around the world fast from dusk til dawn. One of the benefits of this is that the fasting person can feel the hunger and thirst that millions around the world face on a daily basis.
As you are reading this page, somewhere in the world a mother will wake up to the cries of her children – cries of hunger. She will have no way to feed them. No food in the cupboards, no crops in the fields.
Islamic Relief is responding with multiple projects, such as in Bangladesh, where almost half of all children are underweight, we run feeding centres to tackle the challenge of malnutrition.
And during Ramadan, Islamic Relief will distribute food parcels to orphans, widows, the disabled and other vulnerable people to ensure they can break their fast and to celebrate the end of the holy month on Eid-ul-Fitr.
Last Ramadan, approximately 650,000 people in 25 different countries benefitted from a food parcel
