2011 Ramadhan Iftaar Fund:

Repeating our efforts of past 17 years, CAI will insha’Allah assist in providing poor families with Iftaar support this coming blessed month of Ramadhan.  I will personally supervise part distributions in Afghanistan and India, insha’Allah.  Our reach will include feeding programs for the poor and destitute in the following countries: 

Afghanistan – 3,200 families @ US$28 per family unit

  • 25 kg wheat flour
  • 5 liter cooking oil
  • 3 kg sugar
  • 1 kg dates.

Total cost US$89,600

 

Bangladesh – 140 families @ US$21 per family unit

  • 5 kg rice
  • 5 kg various daals
  • 5 kg sugar
  • 1 kg tea
  • 5 liter cooking oil
  • ½ kg salt
  • 1 bottle jam

Total cost US$2,940

 

India – 2,300 families @ US$21 per family unit

  • 5 kg rice
  • 5 kg various daals
  • 5 kg sugar
  • 1 kg tea
  • 5 liter cooking oil
  • ½ kg salt
  • 1 bottle jam

Total cost US$48,300

 

Sri Lanka – 200 families @ US$23 per family unit

  • 10 kg rice
  • 2 kg various daals
  • 3 kg sugar
  • 1 kg dates

Total cost US$4,600

Total planned disbursement of about US$145,400 needs to be raised between now and Ramadhan 1 (August 1).  CAI will forward contract with vendors on these food items at current prices to lock in savings, as prices will increase an average of 20% as we approach the holy month.  Please, please give or pledge generously NOW so we can be prepared insha’Allah.  I am certain we will all play our parts to make this Ramadhan a little easier for those who struggle to survive.  May Allah (S) immensely bless you for your kindness and generosity.  Please circulate this appeal widely so we can reach our goals.
