Eid al-Fitr, known as ‘the festival of breaking the fast’ marks the end of a month of fasting in Ramadan. At this blessed time of year, Islamic Relief wishes all its supporters Eid Mubarak.

With your support, throughout the holy month of Ramadan the global Islamic Relief family has been working tirelessly to help ease the burden facing those for whom hunger is an everyday reality.

Together, we worked to distribute packages containing food staples with which vulnerable families could start and end their fasts.

In total we safely distributed over 280,000 food packs to vulnerable families, reaching around 1.3 million people in over 30 countries.

Distributing gifts to vulnerable children

This year’s Eid gift distribution in Mali.

Every year, we run a global programme to provide Eid gifts to children whose caregivers are unable to do so, giving them something to smile about while they face difficult circumstances.

These gifts provide children with useful items such as Eid clothes, school bags and other educational equipment. We also provide gifts which will simply be enjoyed by children, such as toys, balloons and sweets.

This year, we provided Eid gifts to around 70,000 children across the globe.

Islamic Relief Worldwide and the many thousands of families we reach would like to thank all our supporters for their generosity this Ramadan.

We wish you a wonderful and happy Eid!
