The Prophet (PBUH) said:
Whoever gives food to one who is fasting will have a reward like the fasting person without detracting in the slightest from the reward of the latter" (Al-Tirmidhi)
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.
In Northern Kenya, Islamic Relief teams visit families affected by the drought and deliver food and healthcare to children and pregnant women at risk.
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 Islamic Relief's food parcel distribution.
