MADINATUL ILM CHARITABLE TRUST Rawalpindi PAKISTAN

HUNGER HURTS SOMETIMES for DAYS RAMADAN

MICT through the Kind Support of LFCT is seeking to Raise Funds for

RAMADAN: IMPERATIVE – IFTAAR FOOD BASKETS-2014

HOW THE RAMADAN CAMPAIGN HELPS

Madinatul Ilm Charitable Trust (MICT) in keeping with its previous support for individuals in need of food through the holy month of ‘Ramadan’ would like to appeal for support from Lady Fatemah (a.s) Charitable Trust (LFCT) to extend generous support for this holy and worthwhile cause. Ramadan is a month of reflection, prayer and fasting for Muslims. During the month, observers gain a better understanding of and appreciation for the suffering of impoverished and hungry people around the world. Ramadan also serves to remind Muslims of the importance of charity, and their obligation to be charitable during the month and all throughout the year.

This is vital in order to help individuals and families stricken by the effects of high inflation and poverty across Pakistan which makes it impossible for many to make their two ends meet. Furthermore, there are areas where victims from the highly affected from rains fall 2013 & 2014 are still living their lives in hopeless poverty and need. A gesture which provides them food support during Ramadan can go a long way in facilitating their most important fundamental needs.

At MICT, through the generous support of Lady Fatemah Trust, we intend to arrange food packages to be delivered prior to the Holy Month of Ramadan around the Pakistan.  This program has been an on-going project, right through the year from the support of well-wishers. But during the Holy Month of Ramadan, it is acquires an added significance.

The food packages are meant for more than 2000 families mostly in impoverished north areas of the Punjab, and about 1400 families in the remote area of District Rawalpindi. The recipients of these packages include elderly people, widows, orphans or single mothers with two / three children whose bread earners have either died or simply abandoned them.

Here is a list of the areas where we intend to supply the food packages:
