Providing Iftar to Families of Hospital Patients



This project offering Iftar meals (breaking of the fast meals) to those people who are fasting and accompanying patients at the Fatima Memorial Hospital (FMH).

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

In the event of any sickness that makes people feel unwell, a person is allowed not to fast. The very elderly who have lost their strength and are getting weaker every day are also allowed not to fast. FMH is a 500 bed Trust hospital & 85% of the patients are from the underprivileged class who are provided treatment either free or at highly subsidized rates. The indoor patients have attendants looking after them and through this project we will be providing Iftar to these fasting attendants.

How will this project solve this problem?

FMH is operating a with a mission to provide quality healthcare to patients from all walks of life. By providing Iftar to the attendants of the indoor non paying patients, we provide an opportunity for the non fasting to receive blessings of God.

Potential Long Term Impact

The project will provide Iftar to 850 fasting people every day, who are attending to their loved ones admitted in our hospital and come from economically deprived background. This enables the non fasting to get the blessings of Allah in Ramadan.
