Ramadhan Relief in Canada and Internationally
"Take sadaqah (alms) from their wealth in order to purify them and sanctify them with it, and invoke Allah for them. Verily! Your invocations are a source of security for them, and Allah is All-Hearer, All-Knower." (9:103)
Every year, NASIMCO donates to local food banks, the Ramadhan Campaign Against Hunger and provides food baskets to needy families in Tanzania and Kenya.
As the hunger hit us during the day, we began to appreciate the privilege of having an abundant amount of food on the table when the sun set and the time came to break our fast. Today, for the people in Africa or North America, the never-ending struggle continues as they are unable to cope with the economic difficulties which do not allow for them to prepare for this special holy month.
NASIMCO’s Ramadhan Relief Fund works to help struggling families as these by providing them with staple food rations to make the Holy month of Ramadhan a little easier. Your donation assists families who desperately need relief from the hardship of their lives. Thank you for your generous donations to NASIMCO's Ramadhan Relief Fund.

In North America, we are helping feed the hungry through:

“Using funds given to us by NASIMCO, we have distributed groceries in the most remote areas of the island like Tumbatu and Uzi islands where the needy are often forgotten because the villages are not easily accessible. For the first time, we have reached Pemba island where there are more families in need. In addition to distribution of sacks of groceries we go ‘door-to-door’ to hand out packages on a daily basis.”
