The cost of each food basket is $30 and will provide an orphan and their family, or internally displaced family with essential ingredients for a week of Iftar dinners during Ramadan.

Commonly these food baskets last beyond that.

Life in Iraq is extremely costly and especially so for orphan children families and internally displaced refugee families. Child Aid International Fund Society has committed to help these families by providing them with food baskets. Donations collected for food baskets will be used by Child Aid Iraq to purchase essential food items at wholesale prices.

Please help us reach our goal to provide these needy families with nourishing meals this Ramadan.

Around 12 million Iraqis reside in rural areas and depend on agriculture for their livelihoods. The sector has been severely affected since ISIL took control of central and northwestern Iraq in 2014. It is estimated that Iraq has lost 40 percent of agricultural production over the past four years.

what is ramadhan

Ramadan is the ninth month in the Islamic calendar, which is a lunar calendar based on the cycles of the moon. During Ramadan, observant Muslims fast from sunrise to sunset. They also abstain from pleasures and pray to become closer to God. It is also a time for families to gather and celebrate.

Muslims intending to fast wake up early and eat a light meal, known as suhoor, before dawn. Suhoor is typically consumed about half an hour before dawn, in time for the fajr, or morning, prayer. After the sun fully sets at the end of each day, the person typically breaks his or her fast with water and dates, followed by prayers and then a meal called iftar.
