Poor Muslim Families look foward to AIF's Pre-Ramadan Food Hamper

The Al-Imdaad Foundation has established an annual Pre-Ramadaan hamper distribution drive to assist the poor and needy with essential food items in the lead up to the sacred month. The hampers are substantial, and include basic and non-perishable items such as oil, maize, pasta, sugar and dates. Distribution occurs in the poorest areas across all nine provinces and a stringent process is applied to ensure that deserving recipients receive aid. Through consultation with ulema in the different areas, needy residents are identified and given coupons. These are presented at a distribution point in return for a food hamper. The Pre-Ramadaan hamper distribution drives have enjoyed huge success each year and AIF would like to thank its donors for generously supporting this initiative.
