Ramadan Food Baskets for Families in Gaza (2023)

During the holy month of Ramadan in 2023, HANDS International and MCEC reached out to families in need across Gaza, providing them with essential food baskets. These parcels offered a lifeline to those struggling during a time of increased hardship. 

Gaza has faced immense challenges in recent years, with ongoing conflict and economic instability creating a dire situation for many families. Ramadan, a time for spiritual reflection and community, can be a particularly difficult period for those who cannot afford food for their families. 

Our Ramadan food baskets distribution program brought much-needed relief. Each basket contained essential food items such as rice, lentils, cooking oil, and dates, ensuring families had enough to prepare nutritious meals for Suhoor and Iftar. 

The distribution program was a resounding success, reaching hundreds of families across Gaza. The gratitude of those who received the food baskets was heart-warming.

 Here are some quotes from the families who received our Ramadan food baskets:

Our Ramadan food basket distribution program is a powerful example of how charitable giving can make a real difference in people's lives. By providing essential food aid, we helped families in Gaza experience the true spirit of Ramadan – a time for compassion, generosity, and community.

Ramadan Food Baskets for Gaza Families in 2022

The holy month of Ramadan in 2022 saw a surge in generosity as HANDS International in partnership with MCEC distributed food baskets to families in need across Gaza. With the ongoing conflict and economic hardship, these parcels provided a vital lifeline for many struggling to make ends meet. 

Our Ramadan food baskets distribution program ensured that families received essential food items to prepare for Iftar, the evening meal that breaks the daily Ramadan fast. Each parcel contained rice, lentils, cooking oil, dates, and other nutritious essentials.

The distribution program wasn't just about providing food; it was about sharing the spirit of Ramadan – a time for compassion, charity, and community. Our volunteers ensured a dignified distribution process, treating each family with respect and understanding.

Thanks to the generous support of our donors, HANDS International and MCEC were able to distribute hundreds of food parcels, bringing relief and nourishment to families in Gaza during a time of great need. 

Even though Ramadan 2022 has passed, the need for support in Gaza continues. HANDS International is committed to providing ongoing humanitarian aid to the people of Gaza. Please consider donating to our cause and help us deliver hope to those who need it most. 

Gaza Food Fair

When ‘HANDS International’ and ‘Palmers Green Mosque’ decided to take action for Gaza in our community by holding our Gaza Food Fair, we didn’t expect to uncover such a hurtful undertone in our community, as well as a deep desire of wanting to contribute. 

Yes, as many other charities aimed, we also wanted to raise humanitarian funds for the beautiful people of Gaza who have been affected by recent events. However, during the process of planning for the event over the past 8 days, we uncovered the underlying hurt, the heartache, the sympathetic pain almost, the determination and resolve to outwardly demonstrate the connectivity through ummah, essentially the brother/sister-hood that was being felt in our community after recent events. As ‘HANDS International’ and ‘Palmers Green Mosque’ progressed it quickly became apparent that our responsibility also lay not only with our brothers and sisters in Palestine, but also with our own community here who are almost traumatised, well, at least yearning and felt duty bound to make things better for our siblings 2,200 miles away.
