During Ramadan a Muslim fasts from sunrise to sunset as an act of devotion and self-constraint. Most of us are fortunate enough to have food and water in abundance, however there are many families this Ramadan who will not have access to food and safe water. The rising price of food due to conflict has for many made providing iftar and suhur for their families a struggle.
At SKT Welfare we have worked tirelessly for 10 years to provide food parcels to less fortunate families in devastated areas such as Syria, Yemen, Gaza, Pakistan, Somalia, Bangladesh (Rohingya refugees). Our food parcels are a lifeline for many families, containing essential food items such as rice, flour, oil, sugar, lentils. In 2017, a staggering 10,000 food parcels were delivered, providing essential support to nearly 160,000 people.
'£1.50 a day provides food for a family of 5'
Your help in these communities will make this a pleasant Ramadan for many families ensuring they have a nourishing iftar and suhur meal. Food packs are £45 for a family of five for one month.
