Australian Ramadan Food Program
Alhamdulillah, as we are blessed to have an adequate meal for iftar, let us not forget about the people who don’t. Not only overseas, but within our own community here in NSW.
Last year, Mission of Hope’s Ramadan Food Program initiative provided food hampers for 640 families around NSW and Woolworths gift vouchers for needy families in Melbourne and country NSW.
…One hamper consisted of non-perishable goods:
2L of Milk/Syrup
2 cans of meat (corned beef/tuna)
1 can of vegetable (tomato/corn/peas)
1 can Dip
1 packet of biscuits
Bottles of Water
1 jar of jam/Halawa
The total cost of one hamper is equivalent to $43.00.
Family hampers went to the families of the terminally ill, refugees and asylum seekers from Somalia, Afghanistan, Iraq, Iran, and other various linguistic and ethnic backgrounds. It is sad that the reality is we have a great number of brothers and sisters here in Sydney, who have escaped the war and are homeless and living in mosques and musollas with no source of income and have gone unnoticed.
If you would like to help, please kindly deposit into the Mission of Hope account with RFP (for Ramadan Food Program) as the description.
