Assalamualaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh
It's now just over a month away from Ramadan, and around this time of year, we normally choose a charity that helps those less fortunate receive some food for their iftar. This year, we have chosen the Ramadan Aid Mission run by the Muslim Volunteer Malaysia (MVM) for Rohingya Refugees.
Guided by the principle of ‘Action Today Will Change the Future’, MVM hopes to create a caring society so that communities are strengthened, social responsibilities are implemented and all of us join together to lighten the burden of those in need.
The sum of only RM10 can sponsor a person's meal for iftar under their Rohingya: We Care appeal. They hope to provide meals for 20,000 Rohingya refugees this year, on top of their other initiatives throughout the year.
In addition to financial donations, you can also donate your time and effort by signing up as MVM volunteers; registration can be done at their website.
Let us make this Ramadan all about abundance in prayer and charity and good deeds, and not about excesses and wastage of food. May Allah accept it from us, Insyaa Allah.
