As the month of Ramadan approached near, we launched a new and exciting campaign. We wanted to sponsor Ramadan food packages for local families in the Greater Toronto Area. These families would receive the gift of food from their Muslim brothers and sisters.
We were able to collect enough food packages to help 75 families. Our weekday students and visitors to Al Huda Institute were able to contribute generously.
Organisations we collaborated with to help families:
- Al Huda institute Canada
- Muslim Food Assistance Programme
- Muslim Welfare Centre
- Ernestine’s Women’s Shelter
May Allah reward all the people who helped in donating, and transporting the food packages.
Here are some pictures of the activities that took place for the campaign:
