Once again, the blessed month of Ramadan is upon us, and we at KinderUSA would like to wish you and your families Ramadan Mubarak!
KinderUSA’s Ramadan Farmers Food Project is now in its 12th year delivering fresh vegetables, fruit, live poultry and freshly prepared dairy products reaching over 2500 families consisting of 8-13 family members. In Gaza, over 80% of the population rely on aid to meet their daily needs. Food is available in markets, however, the many families we serve are unemployed, and many more are female heads of household doing their best to provide for their children.
In Gaza, our partnership continues with Beit Lahia Development Association distributing working with small scaled farmers providing reshly grown vegetables include tomatoes, cucumbers, potatoes, onions, molokhia, eggplant, squash, and carrots, with chicken famers providing 8 live birds to each family along with flats of eggs. Women cooperatives are providing freshly prepared cheese, jam, maftoul, zataar and doqqa.
Our project is much greater this year as the need continues to grow. For a cost of just $125 per family, we are able to increase food security, provide healthful food options during Ramadan, and perhaps, most importantly, increase families’ happiness and joy during this month of fasting and prayer. Advancing their dignity and that of their families has been the foundation of our work since our launch in 2002 and is ever more prevalent during the month of Ramadan.
Please consider a donation of during the month of Ramadan while also supporting indigent farmers and women cooperatives. A donation of $1000 will provide enough food for 8 needy Palestinian families.
Our work is only possible with you continued support. Thank you for sharing our compassion for the children in Palestine and beyond!
