This Is Lancashire: East Lancs charity has previously collected for local foodbanks East Lancs charity has previously collected for local foodbanks

AN EAST Lancashire charity has launched a global relief campaign to help the poorest in need around the world during the Muslim holy month of Ramadan.
With a global network working in more than 65 countries, teams from Al-Imdaad Foundation UK are on the ground ready to deliver donations within 30 days.
Countries where the charity is working include Somalia, Malawi, Indonesia, Africa, Bosnia, Bangladesh, Pakistan, India, Syria, Palestine, Jordan, Chile, Cambodia, Niger, Madagascar, Kosovo, Albania, Congo, Tanzania and many more.
This year, Al-Imdaad Foundation aims to feed nearly 1.2 million people globally in the month of Ramadhan, following on from last year’s effort of providing food to over 850,000 people in 41 countries.
In Somalia where famine and drought has worsened existing poverty levels, the Al-Imdaad Foundation team provided food packages to over 33,000 people facing hardship on many levels.
Also where intermittent conflict continues to affect Palestinians and Syrians, the team has delivered food parcels to nearly 65,000 refugees.
International Projects co-ordinator Zubair Valimulla said: “The campaign which has taken over four months of planning will include distribution of Ramadhan ration for a month supporting a typical family of 5-7, hot food meals for the fasting and allocating gifts for distribution as Eid gifts at end of Ramadhan.
“We have already arranged delivery of food for over £366,000 and by end of July, we aim to deliver around half a million pounds worth of aid globally.”
While continuing relief efforts around the world, the Al-Imdaad Foundation team has not neglected crisis closer to home.
The charity is regularly carrying out a ‘Feeding the Homeless’ scheme every Sunday in different parts of the UK including Sheffield, Birmingham, Bolton, Walsall, Leicester and Coventry, feeding more than 900 homeless people.

I wish . . .

There was no need for religious charities. I wish there was no need for religious beliefs. I wish there were no religions at all. I wish people would be able to help each other when that need was present. I wish for a lower birth rate throughout the world. I wish that youngsters were born with a member of each sex being present to look after them. I wish there were 100% birth control during schooling. I wish that schools taught lessons and were banned from teaching religion. I wish religion was a private affair kept at home.

All of the troubles on this earth are due to the lack of concern to the issues stated above.

Then the world would then become a better place for everyone to live in!

If they just did that then WE would call them racist, n we also would say that they are living in this country as citizens but helping their own instead of people in this country.

It is good to see a charity working internationally as well as at home. Well done and keep up the good work!!

Ebenezer Scrooge yes that's you ?
Keep down world population ? to keep down poverty and hunger ?
If you look at problem of the world economy it's the West that's exploit the Third World countries like all their agricultural produce like Tea Cotton Coffee and minerals like Gold Diamond Iron Ore Coal and Oil.Prices are determined at Western Stock Markets in London New York Tokyo Paris and Frankfurt, so while poor countries like Uganda Kenya get a poor deal for their tea and Coffee their poor people suffer from lower coffee and tea deals.A factory in Bangladesh producing cheap garments for western clothe stores and workers gets a pound a day in wage ? It's the Western countries that keeping the poor people of Third World poor not paying a decent prices for their coffee tea cheap clothings and other raw materials destined for rich Western Markets.
