ABOUT IFTAR4GAZA

The Iftar 4 Gaza is an event that’s currently being hosted by the Palestinian community of the Greater Toronto Area in partnership with IDRF. The goal of this event is to raise awareness and much needed funds to provide water and food to Gaza residents during Ramadan through the distribution of food kits that are prepared with fresh produce by local Gaza farmers and an additional Fitrah food and sweets kit that is given shortly before Eid. Last year with the support of donors and sponsors we supported 20,000 individuals in Gaza during Ramadan. Funds will also support IDRF’s ongoing work around Water and Food security in countries such as Palestine, India, Pakistan and Guyana.
