Let’s Feed the Hungry this Ramadan

Noor Relief Fund (NRF) > Blog > News > NOF Updates > Let’s Feed the Hungry this Ramadan

“And they give food in spite of love for it to the needy, the orphan, and the captive, [Saying], “We feed you only for the countenance of Allah. We wish not from you reward or gratitude.” 

The Holy Quran: 76:8-9

Thanks to your generous donations, our food hampers have already made it’s way to Yemen and cities across Iraq, including Baghdad, Balad, Kirkuk, Najaf and Karbala.

The Holy month of Ramadan is a blessing, it the month of purity and a month of giving to charity. In 2021, we live in a world of abundance, yet hunger is still one of the biggest problems that we as a global community face. No one should have to worry about when their next meal is coming, but millions do.

Hunger is a vicious cycle, when a family struggles with chronic hunger, it prevents them from being able to work, go to school, and improve their lives. Not only does this make this life very hard, but those suffering from chronic hunger are often overwhelmed by illnesses, developmental disabilities, and low productivity. Ramadan is an opportunity for true, meaningful change. As God tests our obedience and patience, He also gives us the chance to transform our lives through charity. Every good deed in this month is multiplied and rewarded many times over. This Ramadan, let’s be the change the world needs.

At Noor Orphans Fund, we work to reach those in need by tackling hunger year-round by providing help and support to orphans and widows living in Yemen and Iraq. According to a report by the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), UNICEF, and the World Food Programme (WFP), 40% of Yemen’s population was expected to suffer from acute food insecurity because of the war, flood, coronavirus, and locust swarms, by the end of 2020. [1]

In Iraq, while the overall situation has been improving since the defeat of (ISIL) at the end of 2017, significant challenges remain – including economic instability and persistent low standards of living. The humanitarian situation is still precarious in many of the conflict-affected areas. The poverty rate stands at 22.5 percent, as Iraq ranks 120 of 189 countries in the 2019 Human Development Index.[2] Our charity focuses on helping orphans and widows, who are in some of the most vulnerable groups. Your donations can alleviate the suffering of those who struggle every day.

Our Holy Prophet (pbuh) has said, ‘If the servant was to fathom the worth of Ramadan, he would wish that Ramadan lasted the whole year.’

Bihar Al-Anwar, P. 346, No. 12
