During Ramadan, Muslims are encouraged to be charitable. Feeding people at the end of the fasting day represents a very rewarding spiritual act according to Islamic tradition and teachings. Islamic Relief’s Ramadan Food Program offers an opportunity for many needy people around the world who face food insecurity and hunger to be provided with a ‘Ramadan Food Packet’, which ensures that their burden is eased during the month of Ramadan. Each distributed food packet contains an amount of basic food commodities (approximately 33 pounds on average) for a family of 5 for the month of fasting. Each food packet is designed to consist of the most basic required dietary food materials, as suitable for the region/country.
Every year a wide range of beneficiaries are selected, including widows, orphans, destitute, aged, disabled, refugees and people affected by disasters. The beneficiaries are selected in conjunction with local welfare groups working alongside Islamic Relief offices worldwide.
