COSARAF Foundation Ramadan Projects 2022

The Foundation contributed to a number of relief projects throughout Ramadan both here in the UK and internationally.

The Foundation has provided funding for a number of projects as well as continuing to give individual hardship grants to those who are most in need.

Here is a look at some of the major projects we have supported this Ramadan, internationally and in the UK:

Pakistan: Fahmida Begum Foundation
Working with the Mehran Welfare Trust the Fahmida Begum Foundation gave Ramadan food parcels to 1000 families in Mehran Town, Karachi.

Afghanistan: Hayat Foundation
The donation was able to support 1672 beneficiaries including children, orphans, widows, the disabled and the elderly through 200 food packages.

Zimbabwe: Hatcliffe Extension Charitable Trust
The donation was received for food parcels which went to four centres and supported 200 people.

Pakistan: The Noor Project – Lahore
The Noor Project, delivered by the Foundation’s partners at For the Needy & Hungry Foundation, is delivering 3000 food rations a month for three months to the most deprived families in Lahore. In total, thanks to support from the Foundation, these emergency food rations will provide enough food for a staggering 1.8 million meals. Extra rations will be provided during Ramadan to enable families to mark the most holy of months in the Islamic calendar.

India: Join Hands Trust
In the rural area of Madurai in India, the Join Hands Trust distributed food packs to more than 250 poverty-stricken families. The charity’s Ramadan food packs supported the impoverished, orphans, destitute and widows in local communities. These packs ensured that up to 1250 of the poorest people in three villages will be able to prepare an Iftar and Suhoor meal for each day of Ramadan. To avoid over-crowding deliveries were made by volunteers to each family.

Kenya: Shamakha Foundation
In rural communities around Mombasa in Kenya, the Shamakha Foundation distributed up to 1500 food packs. With each food pack sufficient for a family of five, some 7000 individuals in deprived communities received support over Ramadan.

Dubai: Companies for Good
The Foundation funded 400 food packs to labourers working in Dubai. Treasurer, Akbar Sheikh was involved in the distribution of meals.

Bangladesh: Carers Worldwide
The Foundation provided immediate support to 301 individuals – providing medical aid and food. This included specialist wheelchairs and hearing aids, emergency eye assessments and the provision of specialist orthoses.

UK: Hertfordshire Community Foundation
Closer to home, the Foundation made a grant to Herts Domestic Abuse Helpline. In a typical year Herts Domestic Abuse Helpline supports 2,300 people via telephone and web based support and the Foundation’s grant will support 100 women throughout the year.

UK: Dates
The Foundation sent boxes of dates to all partner organisations in celebration of the Holy Month of Ramadan.

The Foundation has also provided support to Harrow Central Mosque to provide daily Iftar parcels for up to 400 elderly, vulnerable and other community members in difficulty.
