Assalamu Alaikum Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barakatu
May the peace, mercy and blessings of Allah be with you.
The blessed month of Ramadan is fast approaching. For most of us this is an exciting and treasured month however for the 3.3 million Bangladeshi's living in extreme poverty Ramadan is a stressful and trying time. Families trapped in a vicious cycle of poverty do not have food to eat on a daily basis thus in Ramadan their fast often goes unbroken. However, they have us Alhamdulillah and no fast will go unbroken on our watch!
This Ramadan we are giving you the chance to be the change. By donating your Zakat and Sadaqah we can ensure all our Muslim brothers and sisters in need have a healthy and nutritious meal Iftar because we believe every fast deserves to be broken.
Sylhet Aid is a programme of 13 Rivers Trust and last Ramadan with your generous donations our team were able to deliver enough essential food items to feed 1,200 families! This year we aim to distribute 2,000 food packs to some of the poorest families in Sylhet.
For £25 you can provide a family of four with one food pack which is enough to sustain them for the whole month. This works out to be less than £1 a day!
One food pack contains:
• 20kg rice
• 2 litre oil
• 3kg onions
• 3kg lentils
• 1kg Dates
• 1kg Sugar
• Varied spices
• Fried vermicelli
Please donate and may Allah bless you.
Jazak Allahu and Wassalaam
From the 13 Rivers team
