Ramadan Appeal 2017

The holy month of Ramadan is due to begin on 26 May 2017.

This year Welfare Association will be distributing nutritional fresh food parcels each week for 5 weeks during Ramadan. The fresh food items will be provided by local farmers who will also be supported. This project will enable them to generate some income in order to replant their crops for the coming seasons and sustain their livelihoods.

 Last year Etaf told us:

“This parcel is great, it includes food we didn’t have for several months, such as chicken, tomato, cucumber, mouloukhieh and melons. I’m making delicious food and my children are loving it!”

Families are struggling to meet their daily food needs and this project provides a fresh food pack each week for 5 weeks, allowing families to plan their meals and make them together.

This innovative approach provides a double benefit during Ramadan, by working with 130 small farmers and by supporting 980 vulnerable families living in poverty.

Through this project, Welfare Association will be supporting some of the poorest families living in marginalised areas of Gaza, giving priority to families supporting orphans and/or with disabled children. We hope to be able to raise large funds again this year to enable us to support even more families.

Please donate generously again to allow us to increase the number of families we are able to support this year.
