Charity in Ramadan: Giving up food, giving back to society

Giving has always brought out the best in people. Throughout the decades, people have sought different opportunities to give back to human kind.

There is little doubt that the amount of charities have increased, placing a greater need for the generosity of the general public.

Charity work

The holy month of Ramadan, when Muslims worldwide fast during daylight hours and abstain from other pleasures, is also the month where Muslims contribute to charity work, and donations for the less fortunate.

There is a noticeable increase in charitable work during the holy month.

We wish the whole year was this way. That’s one of the main purposes of Ramadan, to entice people to do good and to continue throughout the year.

Charity is never obligatory it is always additional. There’s no twisting your arm to do good.

Number one is feeding people, secondly clothing people, and finally housing them – no one should be homeless.

Royal Group Charity is committed to working during the holy month of Ramadan, such as feeding those that are less fortunate. by offering meals that breaks their fast every day.

Many international and national charity organizations take advantage of this month to provide for their various causes.

In the GCC ( Gulf Cooperation Council ) there is a particular drive by the community to help those less well off, Each year hundreds donate food, bedding, toiletries and clothes which are then handed out to workers as care packages.

Everyone participates in Ramadan, every resident tries to give. This is the month of giving, nothing beats that.

Royal Group Charity will continue to fight poverty, support ramadan and improve children’s access to quality primary education in developing countries.

Royal Group Charity Assignment

Since last year, more than 650,000 Rohingya muslim children and families fled to Bangladesh following a rapid and alarming escalation of violence in northern Rakhine State in Myanmar.

With the monsoon season approaching, the risk of outbreak of life threatening water borne diseases is very serious, particularly because the Rohingya people are settled in an area that is at risk to cyclone and will be flooded as soon as the rains begin. In addition, the make-shift camps and open sewage systems around water sources brings its own challenges which will be worsened by the flooding.

Royal Group Charity Foundation is dedicated to ensuring that Rohingya children and their families are supported and receive assistance and solutions including their basic human right.

During this Holy month of Ramadan, Royal Group Charity will be distributing food, shelter items, hygiene and household kits and handing out clothes and other basic requirements.

Royal Group Charity plans to reach more than 200,000 people including nearly 75,000 children.
