Ramadam 2021: Iftar Food Distribution

As part of the feed the fasting Project, we distributed food packs to 250 households the neediest and internally displaced people in Somalia during the blessed month of Ramadan.  

This intervention aims to save lives and share the joy and happiness of the holy month of Ramadan with deprived and underprivileged people in Somalia. The target groups of this intervention were the drought-affected IDPs and host community Families in Brava, including and most vulnerable people, including women, children, elders, and minorities.

We provided essential food items to the drought victims and disadvantaged needy families to prepare iftar (meal for breaking fast) and suhoor (pre-dawn meal) during the holy month of Ramadan in April 2022. These food packages consisted of Flour, Sugar, Cooking Oil and Dates enough to feed an entire family member of 1-6 People for one month of Ramadan in the Brava district of Lower Shabelle region in Somalia.

In total, 250 households, including internally displaced people (IDPs), received emergency relief. Overall, IRF food distribution reached 1500 people.

Thanks to our supporters and everyone who made this possible. Your kindness means the world to us. Please continue to support us with your donations.

The support provided by IRF to the drought-affected communities in Baraawe has come at the right time and alleviated the burden of the vulnerable, minority and marginalized community in Baraawe town. The activities under this intervention were completed successfully, and the target community appreciated the support.

IRF intervention was continued only for one month (Ramadan month), while the drought situation is exacerbating due to the failure of four consecutive rainy seasons, plus skyrocketing food prices. The famine risk looms more significantly than ever 90% of the population needs urgent food Assistance. An urgent increase in support from the international community is essential to avert famine.  

International Relief Foundation (IRF) has been working in Somalia since 2011, delivering lifesaving and humanitarian projects, including food aid, educationhealthcareclean water and livelihoods.

May Allah (swt) reward you greatly for your charity in Ramadan and give you and your loved ones home in Jannatul Firdaus. Ameen.
