“Assalaamu Alaykum my sisters and brothers,
Inshallah my husband and I will once again be raising money to feed the poor in Egypt during Ramadaan, and I would like to invite my fellow sisters and brothers to join in the reward inshallah.  As in previous years, money we raise will go towards purchasing weekly food packs that families can prepare in their own home. Our previous packs included supplies of rice, pasta, lentils, vermicelli, risoni, ghee, beans, oil, sugar, tomato puree, chicken and meat.
.
.
Mashallah, last year we raised over $40,000 and fed over 2,400 people for every single day in Ramadan, with the vast majority of recipients being widows, orphans and the disabled and elderly. This year, we aim to exceed this target, and I have no doubt that we will manage to do so. Here is video footage of our efforts from last year.

.

.

Imagine watching this video, knowing that your donations was being distributed to these needy people. Imagine watching the video, and the regret you would feel at seeing the mountain of rewards, and knowing that you didn’t take your share of it.
.
.
Keep in mind that EVERY SINGLE CENT raised has always gone towards purchasing food. Every single person on the video offered their time and services, in the blazing heat of the Egyptian summer, for the sake of Allah alone, and not a cent of your donations went towards paying any wage or stipend, alhamdulillah, nor did it go towards any organisational costs and overheads, as my uncle and father personally organise and oversee every single step of the process!
.
.
For those interested, this year it will cost $2.50 to feed a person for 1 day (which is enough to provide their iftaar and suhoor), or $75 to feed a person for an entire month. This is an extremely easy way of earning the pleasure of the Most Merciful for a tiny sum. I’m sure that many of us spend more than that amount per day on coffee or a Coke.
.
InshaAllah I invite all of you to join us in rolling up our sleeves for Jannah, and I hope that inshaAllah we can feed more people than those fed in previous years.
.
 Donations will be accepted up until the 5th of July, to give us enough time to finalise payment and package the food parcels.
.
InshaAllah I hope to have videos and photos of the food packages being distributed to share with you all.
