Let's show our support together

Why should I donate food packages?

The population of our old world is increasing day by day, whereas food sources are decreasing day by day due to bad environmental conditions. Since the distribution of the blessings of the world cannot be fairly made, mass deaths occur on some continents. Some people and nations are very poor, while others are extremely rich.

The basic need of a person, poor or rich, is to feed himself. However, one does not always find food to fill his stomach. Although hunger has various causes, undoubtedly the biggest cause is poverty. Hunger is one of the most difficult situations for people to bear. The word, “May Allah not test anyone with hunger,” which we use frequently in our daily lives, is the biggest proof of this situation.

There are perhaps millions of people struggling with starvation in poor societies that do not have economic power. We only required to fast and go hungry once a year. However, even then, we realize how difficult hunger is, we suffer until our stomach is full. Well, do we ever thought what’s going on around us or around the world? For example, have we ever thought of children whose skin stuck to their bones in Africa? The real hunger is that they live.

Millions of people experience this feeling of hunger everyday which we experience only maybe in the month of Ramadan
