The Ramadan Iftar charity is an initiative of Mojatu Foundation which started in 2020 when the COVID-19 pandemic hit the whole world coinciding with holy month of Ramadan. The outbreak of the coronavirus then brought about so many uncertainties leading to panic and many forms of difficulties not only to Muslims who were observing the holy month of Ramadan but the entire human race.
Mojatu Foundation deemed it fitting as part of the organisation’s social responsibility to reach out to those who were really struggling during the holy month and provided them with iftar (end of fasting meal).
For the last three consecutive months of Ramadan, Mojatu foundation and partners have been involved with the local Muslim communities in Nottingham. This year, our network increased, and the number of meals delivered exceeded five hundred every week.
Every Friday of the month of Ramadan, we delivered healthy hot halal meals, fruits and water to those in need. This year, we extended our benevolence to one of the most vulnerable communities, the refugees and asylum seekers.
The feedback and testimonials have been great and very much encouraging that we pray to witness another holy month of Ramadan so as to continue such initiative.
The Ramadan Iftar charity would have been meaningless without the partnership and participation of the following:
Partners: End FGM, FYA, FMB, GAIN, Al Huraya, IDF, NCVS, PAK Foods, Makkah Foods, Braai King.
Volunteers: cooks, drivers, members of staff, volunteers and placement students of Mojatu, FYA, FMB Radio as well as the Angolan Women Association UK.
