Ramadhan began last week with a celestial surprise for Muslims as the crescent of the Moon was seen with a twinkle, at its pointed edge, of what is believed to be a star. The timing was apt. To us, it’s a metaphor of the holy month beginning with a beacon of ‘Hope’. Ramadshan is a time of fasting and spiritual reflection for Muslims. But additionally, for a Muslim charity organisation like us, it’s a month of hope and opportunity to raise funds for the underprivileged groups we care for.
The month of Ramadan is a time when Muslims worldwide come together to engage in acts of charity, kindness, and compassion. Through fasting, we are reminded of the suffering of those who are less fortunate than ourselves and are encouraged to show empathy towards them. The spirit of generosity that characterises Ramadhan is felt all around the world, and we are grateful to be a part of it.
At MTFA, we work tirelessly to provide aid and support to individuals and families who are struggling to make ends meet. From providing food, shelter, and education to healthcare and financial relief, we are committed to helping those who need it most. During Ramadan, we intensify our efforts to reach out to the needy, and we witness firsthand the transformative power of the holy month.
One of our key activities this Ramadhan is the distribution of Iftar meals to the lower income families, single parents, the handicapped, and the lonesome elderly. We understand that for these groups, the daily struggle to put food on the table is a harsh reality.

During Ramadhan, when Muslims break their fast at sunset, we make it our mission to provide nutritious and filling meals to some who may not have access to them. Through the generosity of our donors and the dedication of our volunteers, we currently deliver meals to about 290 beneficiaries daily throughout the month of Ramadhan. We believe that everyone should have access to basic necessities, especially during this holy month, and we are grateful for the opportunity to serve our community in this way.
Ramadhan is a time when the underprivileged can find solace in the knowledge that they are not alone and that there are people who care about their well-being. This was evident through the joy and relief on their faces when they received the meals.
As a charity organisation, we are humbled and inspired by the generosity of those who donate to our cause during Ramadhan. Just within a month, we managed to raise the targeted amount of $25,000 for this project. Thank you, donors – for your generosity have shined our Ramadhan.
