📦 Ramadan Food Packs & Zakat al-Fitr

With your support, we distributed food packs in impoverished communities, reaching 124,620 people in need, to make it a Ramadan without hunger.

Through this effort, we also distributed your Zakat al-Fitr, Fidya, and Kaffara payments in the form of food supplies to the poorest of the poor, in over 12 countries.

Depending on each region, each food pack holds around 65 pounds of food on average and is designed to provide the essentials to a family of 5-7 people.


🎁 Eid Gifts for Vulnerable Children 

Your kindness gifted smiles to orphans and vulnerable children on Eid day through new clothes and shoes. These gifts full of joy were distributed across Yemen, Somalia, Lebanon, Palestine and Canada!

Thank you for helping spread the joy of Eid to 2,833 children and letting them know that someone is thinking about them.


👶🏽 Orphans Sponsored This Ramadan

Our one-to-one sponsorship program means the world to the orphaned child who is receiving your monthly gift. It is very often the reason they can receive food, medicine, and life-saving support.

Your generosity sponsored an additional 2,275 Orphans this Ramadan, bringing our total sponsored orphans to over 22,285 across the world!


🇨🇦 Here at Home

From coast to coast, we sold and delivered over 1,016 boxes of cupcakes, with all proceeds going to support 469 families in Yemen! Our annual hot meals distribution ensured 3,590 rights-holders were relieved of their hunger. We partnered with Muslim chaplains to provide wellness kits and dates for Muslim inmates, reaching 100 rights-holders!

This Ramadan was truly one of community, and our Grand Iftaars made sure of it! Through your presence and generosity, from British Columbia to Halifax, we are able to deliver food and aid to support 190,974 rights-holders around the world! Thank you for making it a Ramadan of relief.
