1.8 billion Muslims celebrated the "Festival of Sacrifice," or Eid Al-Adha last week. Part of the celebration is sharing meat from a sacrificed animal with the less fortunate. For our non-Muslim readers, Nadda Osman explains in her Middle East Eye article. A large component of our One Ummah Foundation donors follow this tradition each year making it possible for poor families to receive a nutritious meal - a special occasion for so many struggling with hunger.
The generosity of our donors has provided vital nutrition during Eid al-Adha this year for needy families in Togo, West Africa to the slums of Karachi, Pakistan and West Bengal, India. A big thank you to donors for sharing the joy of Eid!
One Ummah Foundation Partners
A special thank you to our partners for coordinating the delivery of meat directly to families. One Ummah Foundation is proud to be associated with high integrity individuals and organizations that act fast and efficiently when help is needed.
Our Giving Concept
The notion of sacrificing one's hard earned money to benefit the needy is not reserved for traditional Islamic holidays - it is a year-round activity for many compassionate and charity-minded people. This is especially true of Muslim communities as they pay their Zakat and Sadaqua to satisfy faith-based requirements. Whether you give for Zakat, Sadaqua, or Tithe, having the discipline to give generously and regularly helps stabilize and advance lives of the poorest of the poor.
This is the #1 Priority
One Ummah Foundation believes that food insecurity is the number one priority to address before we can move towards breaking the cycle of poverty. This is our focus
How does a displaced family survive without food?
How can a child learn on an empty stomach?
How does a poverty-stricken family send a child to school when they can't put food on the table?
Our mission does not slow down after Eid. Our One Million Meals' Initiative continues with ongoing food programs in India, Pakistan, Bangladesh...and more.
As we settle back in to our routines after the holidays, please consider making a recurring donation to One Ummah Foundation programs. For many families there is not much in the way of relief from hunger throughout the year. WE MUST KEEP THEM GOING. The One Million Meals initiative is ongoing and supports yearlong sustenance and emergency situations in severely impoverished areas as well as families that need help keeping kids at school.
