Last Ramadan we distributed a staggering 3,295 food packs / vouchers to help 18,970 people in need, including Zuleka and her family.
This was especially important given the added pressures of the Covid-19 pandemic:
This year, the Covid-19 pandemic has made it harder to make a living but the food pack came to our rescue. Families were able to have iftar after a long day of fasting.
Given the obstacles during the pandemic this year, we mainly provided food vouchers rather than food packs. This included the areas of Mandera, Wajir and Dabaab in the east and north-east of the country where restrictions on movement and social gatherings changed our normal ways of working.
In Nairobi however, in the south-west of the country, we were able to distribute food packs. We provided 600 food packs to children in local orphanages and families living in the Kibera slums, including Zuleka and her children.
Each Ramadan food pack included 6kgs rice, 4kgs wheat flour, 4 kgs maize flour, 2kgs sugar, 2kgs dates, 1 litre vegetable oil and 2kgs beans:
Alhamdulillah! The food pack gave was a great relief. Thank you for blessing my family during Ramadan. May Allah remember all those who provided the food pack and may He bless you abundantly, insha’Allah!
It’s thanks to your generous donations that we were able to support Zuleka, her family and thousands more people in need across Kenya throughout the month of Ramadan.
Thank you for keeping her and her family safe from hunger. Jazakum Allah khair.
