In December 2013, the N2K Team, a group of youth from London (UK) walked from the Holy City of Najaf to the land of Karbala during Arbaeen 1435 to raise funds for The World Federation’s ‘Community Upliftment Project in Northeast Kenya’.
WF-AID is proud to share it’s 2018 Ramadan Relief Report, which details how your generous donations were distributed to those less fortunate across the world.
Alhamdulillah, thanks to your valuable donations to our Ramadan Relief appeal, you helped us reach out to 125,159 people across 16 countries in Africa, Asia, Europe and the Middle East. Throughout Shahr Ramadan, WF-AID teams and partners distributed 19,705 nutritious Food packs, delivered 198 community iftars and funded 50 farming kits to those living in developing countries. We were even able to arrange Eid gifts to orphan children and widows in places like Syria.
The success of our reach has only been possible through a combined effort from the generous support of our donors, hard-working teams on the ground and tireless volunteers who have worked through Shahr Ramadan to help fundraise or deliver aid to those most in need.
Our Ramadan Relief report highlights some of the great work you helped us do and I hope you enjoy the read. It’s amazing to see the positive impact you’ve helped to make within our own communities and to thousands of families living in developing countries.
Please keep supporting WF-AID by donating generously.
Madiha Raza, Head of WF-AID.
