This Ramadan, let’s share #EveryMealTogether with the people of Syria.
Another Ramadan has arrived, another Ramadan of uncertainty in Syria, with 13.5 million people relying on humanitarian aid for survival. The situation was desperate last year, and this year with even more cities besieged – the situation is much, much worse.
This Ramadan, we need your help to reach more families than ever before. Your incredible support through our Ramadan campaign last year enabled us to feed thousands of families in Syria, for many – their first real meal in months. This year we want to reach even more families, and ensure that nobody remains fasting through to fajr the next day due to a lack of food.
We’re focusing our Ramadan campaign on four things this year :
BUY A COOKED MEAL FOR A FAMILY IN SYRIA
Following the success of our trial Food Kitchens in besieged areas during Ramadan last year, they’re back again this year – this time bigger and ready to dish up a storm. Our food kitchens are located in besieged areas, and will serve freshly cooked iftar meals to families for just £3 a day, every single day during the month of Ramadan.
By setting up our own kitchens that manage the cooking and distribution of food, we will be able to provide people with nutritionally balanced, freshly cooked hot meals – something that has become a luxury in many parts of Syria.
BUY A FOOD BASKET FOR A FAMILY OF SIX
This Ramadan, we’ll also be distributing food baskets to families in need in Syria. The food baskets contain staples such as pasta, rice, oil etc and can be used to prepare multiple meals throughout the month. These are useful for families who have access to water, electricity and cooking utensils and cost £60 per basket (to feed a family of 6)
PAY YOUR ZAKAT TO SYRIA
Make the most of the blessed days of the month of Ramadan and give your Zakat and Zakat Al Fitr to the people of Syria. Use our handy Zakat calculator to find out how much Zakat you should be paying.
HOST AN “EVERY MEAL TOGETHER” IFTAR TO FEED FAMILIES IN SYRIA
Ramadan can become quite a social time for many Muslims, with weekly Iftar invitations with friends and family, why not use your Iftar to do something amazing? Our Dine and Donate dinners are back with a new format this year – we’re asking you to host an Iftar in your home, to raise funds to pay for Iftar meals for families in Syria! We’ve created a bespoke decorations pack to make your evening a memorable one, find out more and pledge to host an iftar here.
