FOOD FOR THE FASTING JERUSALEM

TACKLING HUNGER

People living in the Occupied Palestinian Territory live in an environment of violence, fear and limited horizons. Due to an illegal occupation, Palestine has a crippled economy and high unemployment, leaving many Palestinians unable to afford the most basic necessities.  All of this becomes more unbearable, given almost half the population is made up of children (47.1%), exposed to conditions adverse to their well being from birth.

FEEDING THE FASTING

The month of Ramadan is filled with blessings, but also reminds of the challenges the needy are confronted with everyday. In July of 2013, we launched a campaign in the UK to raise funds for thousands of meals to be given to fasting worshipers inside the blessed Al-Aqsa Mosque everyday during the holy month of Ramadan.

WHAT WE DID

Working alongside ‘I Love Al-Aqsa’, an organisation established to support the holy Al-Aqsa Mosque, thousands of meals were prepared and distributed everyday throughout the month of Ramadan.
