Wherever my story takes me, however dark and difficult the theme, there is always some hope and redemption, not because readers like happy endings, but because I am an optimist at heart. I know the sun will rise in the morning, that there is a light at the end of every tunnel.
— Michael Morpurgo
We appeal to all the supporters of Gaza to donate whatever amount you and make it successful with your generous support like you always do and still doing.
Allah bless you
With my charity, I'm trying to win back some of the stolen justice by bringing aid to poor families.
One of my current projects is to put together iftar food packages with essential food items in the hopes to reduce death and illness due to malnutrition. With Ramadan approaching in two months, we could use all your help to make as many food packages as possible.
Each food package costs about 20$ and includes items that should last each family at least a month. I will start with a goal to feed 100families, for which we should raise roughly 2000$. I hope to be able to increase the goal once that amount has been met. Each family will receive (approx):
- 2kg Rice
- 5 cans of beans
- 3 boxes of sauce
- 2 bottles of oil
- 2kg Lentils
- 3kg Sugar
- 3 portions of meat
- 5 bags if pasta
- 4 packs of cheese
- 2kg chickpeas
- A pack of halawa
- 1 pot of jam
- 2kg Bulgur
- 3 packs of spaghetti
I will post updates of how your donations help to Draw a Smile and I will post photos of the preparation and distribution of these packages. I have a website smiledrawing.org
where you can also follow my work and if you wish to contact me on twitter to ask me any questions, @FadyBenSalman1.
The Muslim ummah is disunited today. Let's come together to do some good so it will intercede for us when Allah asks us what we have done to help our brothers and sisters in need. I ask Allah to reward all of you who donate, no matter how big or small the amount. Please keep the people of Gaza in your duas.
Your brother Fadi
