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.
The spanking modern school at Manakara, Madagascar – CAI’s 80th – for about 300 girl students was officially opened on February 14th, 2023. A wonderful and happy day indeed. A proud BCT (UK) and CAI (USA) undertaking.

Medicines, Food, Milk, Blankets, And Water For Syria
CAI personnel began the distribution of emergency aid to the earthquake victims in Aleppo, Hama, and Latakia on the third day after the earthquake tragedy and the aid still continues. Medicines and powdered milk distribution, hampered by poor infrastructure, are in very short supply so we have many challenges in the logistics and pricing. Our efforts continue.
