Shine a Light This Ramadan

There is much darkness in our world right now with daily pain, anguish and suffering.
2.2 billion people around the world are living below the poverty line and there has been a rise in those affected by conflict and natural disaster. Millions continue to flee danger, forced to leave their homes and families far behind.

Without your help we are unable to save these innocent lives who are struggling to survive every day. Join our hands again this Ramadan to serve humanity and create a significant impact in the lives of millions around the world!

Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) said, “Protect yourself from hell-fire even by giving a piece of date as charity.”
