It’s that time again and the team at Ilhaam Foodbank Rotherham are busy collecting for June’s food donation. What makes this month’s collection significant is that we are in the blessed month of Ramadan.
Collecting for June’s Food Donation
It’s a busy time for most household’s at the moment as the holy month of Ramadan has just started. This merits of Ramadan are too numerous to mention here. The one thing worthy of pointing out is the need to reflect upon what we have and what we perhaps take for granted for most of the year.
A ready supply of food can be something that most of us take for granted. When we are hungry we go to the supermarket (or take-away) get what we need and consume it. Quite straightforward?
It’s only when we are fasting that we get a ‘reminder’ of what hunger feels like, how it affects us physically, mentally and how much we miss it.
For a number of reasons, there is unfortunately, an increasing number of people in our communities who are struggling to feed themselves. The team at Ilhaam pray that whilst we are all fasting that we take a moment to reflect upon the plight of those less fortunate than ourselves and donate food to help ease their difficulties?
