One of the greatest deeds in Ramadhan is to provide food for a fasting person. The prophet sallalahu alayhi wa alihi wasalam said that whoever does so, will receive the reward equal to the fasting person and if one provides a full Iftar meal, Allah will provide them a drink and they will not experience thirst until they enter paradise. This Ramdhan as in previous years, Planet Mercy are providing Food Rations/Aid to Families in Need.

We have seen unprecedented challenges in recent times with the covid-19 pandemic and now rising cost of living driving families to poverty. The effects of it will be felt for some time and a lot of uncertainty lies ahead. In the last few years we have launched a “Hardship Fund” annually which has helped several families. The aim of the fund is to bring some form of support and relief to struggling families through difficult times. We aim to provide a one off financial support of £250 per family to eligible families. The Fund will be launched immediately after Ramadhan and open to families to apply for. Kindly sponsor a family for £250 or donate any amount you wish.
