CHARITY OF THE MONTH - OCTOBER 2018

It's now less than 2 months away from the end of the year; have you reached your sadaqah goals for 2018? We hope you have exceeded in your giving Insyaa Allah :)

For October, we have chosen an interesting charity concept by the World Food Programme under the United Nations - it's an app called Share The Meal.

821 million people out there in the world today are undernourished. Hunger and malnutrition are the number one risk to health worldwide — greater than AIDS, malaria and tuberculosis combined. But many of us can help, as it only costs USD0.50 to feed one child for a day.

 

Share The Meal helps people in the poorest regions in the world, including in Palestine, Syira, Yemen Uganda and Malawi. Many school children, refugees, those hit by war, famine or natural disasters can now have enough food and nutrition to get them through the day.

  

They even have a unique concept called The Table, where we can be virtually connected with a unique family each month and give direct support with cash assistance, so that they can purchase the food that best suits their family’s needs.  Wonderful, right?

Remember the words of our beloved Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, “Spend in charity and do not count it, lest Allah count it against you. Do not hoard it, lest Allah withhold from you.”
