Ramadan Fund 2020 Projects

The Foundation is delighted to be able to announce the projects it is supporting through its Ramadan Fund this year.

With the global COVID19 pandemic affecting so many vulnerable communities, a number of the Foundation’s Ramadan projects this year have been responding to calls from areas particularly badly affected.

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.

Join Hands Trust
In the rural area of Madurai in India, the Join Hands Trust will distribute food packs to more than 250 poverty-stricken families. The charity’s Ramadan food packs will support the impoverished, orphans, destitute and widows in local communities. These packs will ensure 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.

Shamakha Foundation

In rural communities around Mombasa in Kenya, the Shamakha Foundation will distribute up to 1200 food packs. With each food pack sufficient for a family of five, some 6000 individuals in deprived communities will receive support over Ramadan.

Hertfordshire Community Fund

Closer to home, the Foundation will once again be providing support to the Hertfordshire Community Fund’s Children’s Fund to provide hardship support for local families.

Harrow Central Mosque

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.
