“Ramadan has come to you. (It is) a month of blessing, in which Allah (swt) covers you with blessing, for He sends down mercy, decreases sins and answers prayers… In it, Allah looks at your competition (in good deeds), and boasts about you to His angels. So show Allah goodness from yourselves.”
(Prophet ﷺ, narrated by Tabaraani)
Last year, with your support, Islamic Relief reached over 1 million people with food for a month. This enabled those that were fasting to break their fast at iftar with a nutritious meal. In addition to this, all food items are purchased locally, which helps the local economy, and ensures that the food provided is suitable and familiar to the families receiving. The Ramadan food programme is designed to complement longer-term relief and development projects that provide sustainable ways to improve living conditions.
Due to the varying food prices, the prices below are indicative of the cost of a family food pack:
When droughts, earthquakes, floods or conflicts occur, Islamic Relief is always there to provide life-saving aid and support.
Where immediate support is required such as in Myanmar, Syria and Yemen we provide essential food for families to help them survive when they are most vulnerable.
This can be in the form of a family food pack which consist of staple foods like rice, pasta, beans and bread. We also have feeding centres which treat malnourished children and help them regain their childhood.
In more stable environments we help communities start farms and learn new skills so they can have food all year round.
Our aim is to enable families and whole communities sustain themselves and no longer rely on charity for survival, thus truly breaking free from poverty.
