Each year, IDRF ensures that vulnerable and needy family families receive food in time for Eid-ul Fitr. IDRF and our partners are diligent in ensuring that distributions are compliant with Zakat-al-Fitr requirements.
How do we use Zakat-al-Fitr donations?
IDRF typically receives Zakat-al-Fitr funds throughout the month of Ramadan. While the obligation is to provide families with one meal, IDRF uses this time to provide families with sufficient food aid parcels to last them over a month or more, in addition to a special celebration of Eid-ul-Fitr. This maximizes resources and provides significant health benefits to families.
Where we work
Since 2010, IDRF has successfully delivered food aid to the most vulnerable families in Gaza during Eid al-Fitr, ensuring that all families are able to feed their children during this important time. In 2016, some of the poorest families in Gaza will receive weekly fresh food parcels for five weeks during the Holy Month of Ramadan to enable them to meet their minimum food requirements. Fresh food will be purchased from small impoverished farmers and distributed to families in need. During Eid, children will also receive a gift of special chocolates to celebrate. This innovative approach will bring a double benefit during Ramadan: helping families to feed their children, and helping over 100 small scale local farmers by supporting their business.
Help us help the children of Gaza to celebrate Eid this year.
