11 Years of Ramadan Charity Basket
For the 11th year running, SimplyIslam.sg is happy to continue our annual Ramadan project where we provide food and financial help to over 220 needy families in Singapore in time for Eid al-Fitr.
Watch a video of one of our recipients here: https://www.facebook.com/simplyislam.sg/videos/10155558736106264/
Our Partners – Muslim Kidney Action Association (MKAC) + Marine Parade CC + Darul Aman Mosque
In the early days, we organised the charity drive with only Muslim Kidney Action Association (MKAC). The organisation provides care and support to Muslims who are suffering from kidney failure and chronic ailments, and provides financial assistance to the families concerned.
Over the years, we’ve collaborated with more organisations and groups, thereby increasing the Ramadan Charity Basket recipients!
On top of MKAC recipients, we will also be helping recipients from Marine Parade Community Club. The CC supports needy recipients living in Marine Parade, and in collaboration with the Malay Activity Executive Committee (MAEC), the Marine Parade needy recipients will receive the goodies from the Ramadan Charity Basket!
We will also continue to support our neighbour, the Darul Aman Mosque. The Mosque is a unique landmark with its traditional ‘kampung’ design, strategically located in the heartland of the indigenous Malay community. It serves various local ethnic congregants and embraces the larger community of foreign residents in Singapore. Beyond religious classes and festivities, its outreach includes facilitating family services, in particular the under privileged. Once again, the poor and needy residents under the care of the Darul Aman Mosque will receive the goodies of the Ramadan Charity Basket.
Giving food, Eid goodies and cash to over 220 needy families
Eid, or Hari Raya, is a time when families cook delicious food, wear beautiful clothes and spruce up their homes in anticipation of guests. In Singapore, celebrations go on for a month long!
Not all families can afford what the ‘typical’ Singaporean family enjoys and especially during Eid, it can feel even more lonely.
The food provisions include rice, milk, sugar, dry foods and other basic amenities including Eid novelties, and some cash.
Please donate generously so we can make Ramadan & Eid better for these families.
Annual Packing + Delivering
If you would like to volunteer to PACK and/or DELIVER the Baskets, please email your Name and Contact Number to firstname.lastname@example.org or call 65474407.
Delivery of the Baskets will be on Saturday, 2 June and Sunday, 3 June 2018, 2pm to 6pm. Please volunteer to deliver especially if you have a vehicle!
How You Are Helping
Each Basket has rice, milk, sugar, dry foods and other basic amenities including Hari Raya (Eid) novelties. They cost around $200 each.
We want to raise $60,000 to continue providing for over 220 needy families this Hari Raya or Eid. If we raise more, each family will get some cash Insha’Allah.
