Ready for Ramadan Food Boxes

Our blessed month is here! There’s no better time than now to make sure that families’ suffering from poverty, conflict, and famine are able to enjoy Ramadan along with you. Your donation of Ramadan Food Boxes can help the hunger pangs of children go away. Boxes containing non-perishables and food that is commonly used amongst each community to prevent any waste. It can feed a family of 7 for an entire month. Most of all, it helps make this time of year a source of hope instead of sadness. Millions of our neighborhoods are counting on you to give. Millions are counting on your compassion. Please give now.

World Food Crisis Worsens with COVID-19

More than 820 MILLION of our sisters and brothers around the world suffer in excruciating hunger every day. And hunger doesn’t discriminate: People in all parts of the world are literally starving to death, from sub-Saharan Africa, where one in four is malnourished, to the United States, where one in nine Americans are food insecure.

And the COVID-19 pandemic has made things worse: A news report in The Intercept shared: “The level of hunger in U.S. households almost tripled between 2019 and August of 2020, according to an analysis of new data from the Census Bureau and the Department of Agriculture. Even more alarming, the proportion of American children who sometimes do not have enough to eat is now as much as 14 times higher than it was last year.”

The Guardian reports, “Better social protections for poor people are urgently needed as the looming recession following the coronavirus pandemic may put basic nutrition beyond their reach, the UN secretary general, António Guterres.”

IRUSA is working tirelessly so people never have to live in fear of food insecurity.

Islamic Relief’s Dedication to Fighting Hunger

Food aid is the largest sector of Islamic Relief USA’s humanitarian aid. Our food aid programs range from worldwide distribution during the Ramadan and Qurbani seasons; to mobilized deliveries in the wake of disasters; to food pantries that provide easy access to quality food. Across the globe, we’re working hard to make sure that our neighbors have enough to eat.

Here’s just a sampling of our recent efforts to fight hunger:

  • Distributing thousands of hot meals weekly in urban U.S. cities to neighbors in need
  • Improving food security by building integrated agricultural livelihood programs in Malawi
  • Providing nutritious, halal Qurbani meat for more than 948,000 people across 32 countries in 2019
  • Distributing Ramadan food packages for nearly 230,000 people to provide them with staple foods
