Ramadan Food Basket
Ramadan is a time of worship, gratitude, and giving back. While millions of Muslims all over the world fast from food and drink during the day, eating a nice meal at the end of the day, much of our ummah (people), unfortunately, does not have a nice meal, if any, to look forward to at the end of each day. Let’s help provide a little extra during this special month, making sure all families can enjoy a warm meal at iftar (evening meal to break their fast) and enough nourishment to keep them healthy.
A Ramadan Food Basket consists of basic supplies such as flour, oil, rice, lentils, and salt, and will often include dates and tea to bring comfort. Make this Ramadan a little more special for an orphan family and their widow mom, for a disabled young man unable to take care of his family, for the elderly, and for the needy. For just $50, you can bring a smile and comfort to these families. Imagine the reward: Our Prophet (peace and blessing be on him) said “Whoever feeds a fasting person will have a reward similar to the fasting person.” Let’s give of ourselves this Ramadan. This program is zakat-eligible.
Ramadan Village Iftar
During the last 10 nights of Ramadan, Kama Relief provides a hot iftar meal to thousands of families in different villages. Each night, families in the local village where we have our iftar, send their young children with pots to fill with rice, meat, and potatoes to take back home and enjoy together with their families at iftar time. Each year we serve over 10,000 families, providing hot meals to over 50,000 men, women, and children.
Providing a warm iftar has a two-fold benefit: it provides for the fasting person and rewards the one who is giving. Our Prophet (peace and blessing be on him) said “Whoever feeds a fasting person will have a reward similar to the fasting person.” Your charity donation will allow widows, orphans, and needy families to have a Ramadan Kareem (a happy Ramadan). One iftar meal can be provided for less than 50 cents per person. Don’t miss this great opportunity.
New Clothes for Orphans
Usually, during Eid-ul-Fitr and or Eid-ul-Adha, but also at other times, Kama Relief wants to make sure orphans feel the same joy and happiness that other children feel by providing as many of them as possible with new clothes to celebrate the occasion. Our program provides both young girls and boys with new outfits. With your donation, you can bring joy to these vulnerable children, helping them feel loved and cared for and making their Eid celebration memorable. For just $10 for a new outfit, you can bring a much-needed smile to a young boy or girl. Is there anything more rewarding than that? This program is zakat-eligible.
Zakat Al-Fitr is a charity due upon every Muslim before Eid-ul-Fitr prayer. It is a means of purifying the fasting person for any shortcomings during the month of Ramadan, and to help feed the poor. It should be given as basic food items that the needy Muslims can use to feed their families. The amount of Zakat Al-Fitr is 2 handfuls of dates or barley, which comes to approximately $10/person. It should be paid on behalf of each person in the family, including the expected child.
Kama Relief will distribute Zakat Al-Fitr in the correct manner before the Eid prayer in Afghanistan. Be sure to donate before the Eid salat.
Fulfill the sacrifice of Eid-Ul Adha by providing meat to needy families. KRC will slaughter and distribute the meat to remote and poor villages. Everything is done in accordance with the Quran and Sunnah, so that you can receive the full reward of this beautiful act of worship. For many families, this is one of the only times they are able to have meat, which they are unable to afford on their own. Every year, KRC provides hundreds to thousands of families with meat distribution. Please help us to reach more families. Click below to buy your share of Qurbani this year. A sheep is around $200, while one share of a cow is about $175.
