Shahid Afridi Foundation Australia ran Ramadan Food Drive to help underprivileged people in Sydney and Melbourne.
The program is part of #GiveBackToLocalCommunity initiative where Shahid Afridi Foundation’s Australian Chapter distributes food packages to the deserving section of our community here the two major cities of Australia.
As part of this initiative, SAF Australia prepared Food Hampers containing 15 common food items that any family may require in the month of Ramadan, packing these items into a box and delivering it to deserving families, refugees, single parents and people impacted with life-impacting medical conditions.
SAF Australia also encourages the participation of young kids and teens into the food packing activity so that they can appreciate the blessings that Allah has bestowed upon us.
So far the organisation has delivered 81 food hampers in Sydney and Melbourne and intends to donate more during the later days during the month of Ramadan.
Shahid Afridi Foundation is a global charity organisation with chapters all around the world including US, UK, Canada, South Africa, Japan, Singapore, UAE, Bahrain and has recently established its chapter in Australia as an ACNC registered charity organisation.
The organisation was established by the star cricketer Shahid Afridi and is running several projects in Pakistan to help underprivileged people to provide better Healthcare, Education and Clean Drinking Water.
Ramadan is a month of blessings and festivities, every household prepares & consumes special food items according to their culture in suhoor and iftar.
This month also highlights the importance of giving and sharing with people who do not have access to basic food due to the hardship they are facing. Shahid Afridi Foundation Australia put the two aspects together to come up with the idea to provide for those in need.
If you are interested to donate food items (as per prescribed list) or would like to contribute monetarily below are the details or ways you can contact the organisation.
