India: Help Feed Project of MIWF completed – 2613 BENEFICIARY FAMILIES
Ramadan is an especially opportune time to reflect on the blessings of Allah Almighty. When we eat less, our stomachs shrink, and we feel full after a few bites at the end of the day. Fasting allows us to experience once a year what many throughout the world experience almost daily. Hunger, for them, is not a choice; it is simply a fact of life. One only has to look at the state of the Muslim Ummah as a whole in order to determine just how important the concept of charity is today.
Under Help Feed Project of Minhaj Interfaith & Welfare Foundation (MIWF) the distribution of ration among the needy and underprivileged sections of society in three phases and it benefitted 2613 families across 13 locations. Along with food packets, MIWF also gave cash amount to poor and needy families. The project is being carried out since 4 years by MIWF volunteers across India.
The locations where Ramadan Helpfeed was carried out include :
- New Delhi,
Zubair Ahmed , VP of MIWF said that: "Feeding the poor is a great act of charity in Islam and through this project MIWF aims to look after poor and needy families in the Holy month of Ramadan. The purpose of ration distribution among the needy and the poor was not only meant to facilitate them during ‘Sehri and Iftar’ but also to create awareness among the well-to-do people about the need of coming forward and helping the poorest of the poor out of resources Allah Almighty has given to them."
We would like to thank all of our donors and volunteers for their contributions/ efforts in this blessed month.
