One of the main principles of Ramadan is learning to appreciate what you have, which also makes it the perfect time to give to people in need. While we are blessed with delicious feasts almost everyday throughout the holy month, others are unfortunately not as lucky. There are some great charities that you can donate to this Ramadan to help spread good deeds by assisting those in need.
“The best charity is that given in Ramadhan.” At-Tirmithi
For just 70 LE you can provide an ingredients bag to a family in need to see them throughout the holy month.
