Throughout Ramadan Volunteer Sierra Leone supports as many of the poorest most vulnerable people of Sierra Leone by providing monthly food packs throughout Ramadan. Many of the poorest people are living on a day to day basis making money each day to pay for their daily food. During Ramadan this can be difficult going out hustling on the streets trying to make money in the heat of the tropical climate. These food packs take off a lot of the pressure from the poor families knowing that their food is already taken care of for the whole month of Ramadan, which gives them the ability to rest whilst they are fasting.
The prophet Muhammad said:
“A giver of maintenance to the widows and the poor is like a giver in the way of Allah (swt), an utterer of prayers all night and fasting during the day.”
