Just RM 320 Can Feed A Family of 5 This Ramadan
Nigeria is a country where almost 80% of the population earn less than $2 a day and over 40% of children do not have access to primary education. In the rural communities of Northern Nigeria, roughly 60 million people live in extreme poverty and there is difficulty to attain even the basic of necessities.
GlobalSadaqah has joined hands with An-Nadaa to bring an amazing opportunity for our donors this Ramadan. We have successfully fed thousands of families over 2018, 2019, and 2020 with continuous updates for the donors on how their funds were impacting lives on the ground. In Ramadan 2020 alone, we fed 2200 families. Watch the successful food drive here.
With the blessed month of Ramadan approaching soon, all of us are preparing to welcome this guest into our lives. When the adhan for Maghrib is called, we will turn to a filled table and quench our thirst and satisfy our hunger. But for many this hunger doesn’t end. This year the economic condition has worsened even further due to inflation and small businesses being shut down because of the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic.
The Messenger of Allah ﷺ said: “Whoever gives Iftaar to one who is fasting will have a reward like his, without that detracting from the reward of the fasting person in the slightest.” [Tirmidhi] After hearing this Abdullah Ibn Umar used to only break his fast with orphans and the poor and needy. Imagine, if you help feed ten fasting brothers and sisters. You would get the rewards for their fasting as well.
What Is In The Food Box?
Each food box lasts a family for approximately a month and costs MYR 320. It contains the following items:
