Water shortages, destruction of infrastructure and a lack of life-saving medical supplies means that families in Gaza are still suffering immensely. Meanwhile mothers in countries like Afghanistan and Somalia are dying from preventable causes simply because they cannot get access to basic healthcare. We urgently need volunteers to collect for these worthy causes. So if you are interested in boosting your reward and helping those most in need this Ramadan give us a call.
Sisters in the Community, providing care and guidance for new Muslim sisters, is an organisation funded by our UK Projects Department. Last Saturday they held their very own community Iftar in Nottingham. Leaders of the Muslim, Christian and Jewish faith were invited to talk about fasting in their religion and to share Iftar with the local convert community. The group went one step further and shared the remaining food with the locals of Hyson Green. Our Events and Volunteer Co-ordinator, Amreen told us, ‘We were stood outside the Bridge Centre until 12.30am giving away food and making people very happy with some rice and curry!’ We commend the sisters on the great work they are doing. May Allah reward them Ameen. If you want to know more about the projects we carry out here in the UK just click here http://bit.ly/1KvdD1z
Maryam Lion is a single mother of three children. Her son, three year old Mustapha studies at the Muslim Hands School of Excellence in Chiradzulu, Malawi. Maryam is managing to keep her fast with the little food that she has. Both her daughters, aged twelve and fifteen are also fasting. Although she is proud of them, Maryam is especially concerned that her daughters don’t have the food they need to sustain them at Suhoor and Iftar. Whilst we in the UK take it for granted that we will be eating once the sun goes down, there are many days when Maryam and her family have no food. Sometimes Maryam opens her fast with no more than a glass of water. It is people like Maryam that see the real benefits of your donation. Thanks to the generosity of a donor she, along with other widowed mothers at the School of Excellence, was provided with a food parcel consisting of cream of maize (nsima), beans, salt, cooking oil and soya pieces. Maryam told our team on the ground, ‘Today I did not have any food for my children and I to open our fast with. If it wasn’t for this parcel I would have had to ask for food from the local chief’. The Muslim Hands team in Malawi will work hard to continue distributing food parcels throughout Ramadan and beyond. But this is only possible with your continuing support. So donate a food parcel this Ramadan and ensure that families like Maryam’s have more than a glass of water to look forward to at Iftar. You can donate here http://bit.ly/1JvJbDg
