Qatar Charity (QC) has carried out the ‘Feed the Fasting’ project in many African countries, distributing food parcels to poor families, people with special needs, and orphan families in Sudan, Kenya, South Africa, and Ghana. The project is being carried out as part of Qatar Charity’s “Ramadan of Hope” campaign.
In Sudan, 3760 food baskets have been distributed, with another 5,600 to be distributed during the remaining days of Ramadan. The project is expected to benefit 40,000 people in Sudan’s states of Khartoum, Gezira, the Nile River, Gedaref, and Kassala.
In Kenya, food baskets were distributed in 10 provinces to 1,755 needy families in order to help them meet their food needs during Ramadan.
Qatar Charity sponsored families received the lion’s share of the food baskets.
In South Africa, 1,000 food baskets were distributed to 5,000 low-income families, including orphans’ families, on the outskirts of Cape Town and the Western Cape Province.
In Ghana, Qatar Charity distributed 8,750 packs of Iftar meals to schools and mosques in the Ashanti Region over a ten-day period.
The recipients expressed their joy at receiving the timely food baskets, especially in light of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, which has harmed the living conditions of the vulnerable around the world.
They also expressed gratitude to Qatar Charity for assisting them in meeting their food needs during the blessed month of Ramadan.
It is worth noting that Qatar Charity recently distributed food parcels to low-income families, people with special needs, and orphan families in Albania, Bangladesh, and Palestine.
The project was carried out in several regions of Albania, with 1,400 families sponsored by Qatar Charity receiving food baskets.
This year, nearly 6,500 destitute families in Bangladesh, including orphans and widows, received food from 13 districts.
Qatar Charity continues to distribute food parcels to sponsored families in Palestine, with the goal of benefiting more than 60 families.
