Ramadan | A time of spiritual reflection

Ramadan is a time of spiritual reflection, improvement, increased devotion and worship for the Muslims. The fast (sawm) begins at dawn and ends at sunset with fast-breaking meal known as Iftar. This is a time of connection and strengthening bonds with families, friends and surrounding communities. Many children endeavor to complete as many fasts as possible as practice for later life.

We shared this time of peace and harmony by providing Iftar to over 300 families of non-paying patients admitted at Fatima Memorial Hospital. The meal comprised of nutritional items such as dates, fruits, juices, and a meal for dinner. We believe that this is a form of charity which leads to many rewards in this world and the hereafter and helps us expand beyond our limitations. This also enabled us to stand by those families in times of distress and pain. And the happiness experienced through this sharing is unimaginable.

This all would not be possible without your compassionate support. We hope that you will continue to partner with us in our commitment to spread happiness.
