Assalamu alaikum and Ramadan Kareem! We are in the midst of a new Ramadan season. Many of us visit family and friends to break fast throughout the month, often feasting on our favorite foods within the safety of our homes. During this blessed month, we must not forget to care for those who are unable to feed their families. These are dire times for many innocent Palestinian children and their families.
This week, thanks to you, we distributed food to over 800 families in Rafah and Khan Yunis. Given their very difficult living conditions, families were beyond thankful to receive our offerings of support. Each food basket includes the following: 4 live chickens, 2 flats of eggs, fresh picked vegetables, freshly made cheese, jams, maftool, and pressed dates. We purchase the food from 40 women cooperatives and 70 small-scale farmers, many of whom lost their land, but now rent a plot to provide and income and food for their families. Your support of this program gives them the start they need to continue!
We are so thankful to be able to ease a portion of each family’s burden during this tough Ramadan season. Yet none of it would be possible without your continued support. The children in Gaza are asking for food, not toys this Ramadan. A donation of just $130 enables KinderUSA to feed a family of 6-8.
Now more than ever, your donation can make a vast difference in the life of a Palestinian child. Help us make a difference in their lives!
