Ramadan Mubarak! To all of you fasting around the world, we wish you ease and peace. This is a very unsual year in that Pakistan, like much of the world, is under COVID-19 lockdown. That means that it is difficult to visit or cater to the needs of orphans, who are almost entirely fasting.  Our priority is to feed these orphans during Ramadan and this drive is for giving them khajoor (dates) to open their fasts.  

Thanks to you who have donated. We request all of you to spread the word and ask friends to donate so we can give dates to more orphans this year as they are more isolated then ever.  Due to social distancing, they cannot even open their fasts together.  But, these khajoor, give them a sense of unity and community.  

Our goal was to distribute on Saturday, 25th April 2020, first day of Ramadan 2020, but we are now planning to distribute throughout the month so that we can reach as many orphans as possible. We also are getting fresh donations so we plan to give them out this year to those most in need.

We will be sending updates and keeping you informed as this is our journey together.  We won't be taking photographs with orphans this year and they will be given the khajoor at separate times so they don't gather together. Their health and protection is our priority.

Thank you!
