For the 10th year running, SimplyIslam.sg is happy to continue our annual Ramadan project where we provide food and financial help to 200 needy families in Singapore in time for Eid al-Fitr.
In the early days, we organised the charity drive with only Muslim Kidney Action Association (MKAC). They provide care and support to Muslims who are suffering from kidney failure and chronic ailments and providing financial assistance to their families.
Over the years, we’ve collaborated with more organisations and groups, thereby increasing the Ramadan Charity Basket recipients!
This year, on top of MKAC recipients, we will also be working with and helping recipients from Masjid Darul Aman.
Masjid Darul Aman is not just a place of worship, but it also organises educational, social and welfare activities to support the Muslims residing in its vicinity. They have a list of needy recipients that we deliver the Baskets to!
Giving food, Eid goodies and cash to 200 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.

How You Are Helping
Each Basket has rice, milk, sugar, dry foods and other basic amenities including Eid novelties, and some cash (if we collect more). They cost around $175 each.
We need to raise $35,000 to continue providing for 200 needy families this Eid. If we raise more, each family will get some cash inshaAllah.
