2023 Ramadhan Iftaar Appeal
The holy month of Ramadhan is not too far away and CAI must mobilize to distribute food aid to the poor and destitute across the world. Rice, wheat, sugar, flour, and cooking oil worth US$50 will go to each eligible household to supplement their iftaar. Please help us feed a hungry family so they too can enjoy a decent meal.
Our budget is about US$950,000 to feed about 19,000 families in 21 countries, many very remote and difficult to reach. Due to the inevitable increase in food costs as we get closer to the holy month, it is critical we plan, mobilize and lock in the prices now.
The countries where the food will be distributed are – Afghanistan, Bangladesh (Rohingya refugees), Benin, Burkina Faso, Chad, India, Iraq, Liberia, Kenya, Nepal, Niger, Mali, Pakistan, Senegal, Somalia, Sri Lanka, Syria, Uganda, Tanzania, Togo, and Yemen.
About 300 girl students are going to get a much more comfortable school shortly, insha’Allah. They used to sit and study on the dirt under the merciless sun in Nawabad, Helmand, Afghanistan. CAI donors jumped in to help and are constructing tent classrooms where the students will have shelter from sun or rain and soft carpeted floors to sit on.
CAI will contemplate building them a permanent school once the silly over-six-year-old girl’s education issue is resolved, insha’Allah.

Homes For Sindh Flood Victims – A Photo Update
The 200 homes for the 2022 Sindh flood victims in Pakistan are underway. A US$1,200 one-bedroom hall with a bathroom home provides shelter for almost 10 in a single family. A communal handpump well provides potable water. CAI has funding for 100 homes. We need an additional US$120,000 to complete the project. Please help if possible.
