Al Mustafa Welfare Trust®

One of the first projects we actioned was feeding the hungry. This is an issue which affects millions of starving people every day and something we in the West take for granted. Our food project helped 270,000 people.

Al-Mustafa Welfare Trust® Food Projects deliver Qurbani, Iftaar & Food Parcels to people in the third world who are suffering from extreme poverty. We prioritise food delivery to those countries that are in a state of civil war, aid sanctions or suffering from natural disasters.

As Muslims, we are encouraged to provide food to the hungry and there are numerous schemes which are ongoing to do that.

Our Iftar food programme runs throughout the blessed month of Ramadan providing cooked food to those who are fasting. This is a very satisfying project which benefits many deserving people.

Feeding the poor in Islam

The Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) said: O God, grant me life as a poor man, cause me to die as a poor man and resurrect me in the company of the poor..” His wife asked him why he said that, and he replied: “Because (the poor) will enter Paradise (before) the rich. Do not turn away a poor man…even if all you can give is half a date. If you love the poor and bring them near you..God will bring you near Him on the Day of Resurrection.

South Sudan Famine Crisis

A severe drought in South Sudan has triggered the worst food crisis in 60 years. Thousands of innocent men, women and children have died in South Sudan due to political violence that reignited in December 2013, and more than 1 million people have fled their homes since fighting erupted. The UN estimates that a third of the country of 11 million are facing starvation, 50,000 children are at risk of death and 223,000 children face acute malnutrition.
