Malaysia is a country with a population of 32 million where about about 61% of them are Muslim. As per certain surveys 900,000 of the total population lives below the poverty line for various known reasons. Many of the people in this situation don’t have access to adequate basic needs like food, accommodation, healthcare, hygiene, sanitation and education etc. They have very limited access to nutritional food and are also vulnerable to all kinds of diseases and are prone to acute malnutrition due to extreme poverty.
Ramadan is a month of remembrance and worship. But for many of our brothers and sisters, it becomes a matter of worry as it is very tough to get food and many don’t have enough food in the house for the whole family to even have iftar properly. This is a result of many small businesses being closed down and Covid-19 restrictions have further left them crippled.
Waqaf An-Nur is organizing different kinds of support program for underprivileged people during the month of Ramadan and one of the most appreciated programs is “Ramadan Food Basket”.
Donations to this campaign will help feed a family of 5 for the month of Ramadan. These families are from the Asnaf and B40 communities in Malaysia.
The Messenger of Allah ﷺ said: “Whoever relieves a Muslim of a burden from the burdens of the world, Allah will relieve him of a burden from the burdens on the Day of Judgement. And whoever helps ease a difficulty in the world, Allah will grant him ease from a difficulty in the world and in the Hereafter. And whoever covers (the faults of) a Muslim, Allah will cover (his faults) for him in the world and the Hereafter. And Allah is engaged in helping the worshipper as long as the worshipper is engaged in helping his brother.” [Tirmidhi]
What Is In The Food Box?
Each food box lasts a family for approximately a month and costs MYR 200. It contains the following items:
MYR 200 also includes the cost of purchasing, packaging, and distributing the food boxes to various different families.
