UMR has many programs that help people get food throughout the year. But we pay extra attention to religious events like Ramadan and Qurbani celebrations. We have launched many activities in Ramadan 2020 in various countries. By which we provide respectful and culturally appropriate food. Nutritious food from our Qurbani and Ramadan programs reduces poverty and malnutrition. It overcomes refugee, displaced, and marginalized community access and social equality barriers.
Here are some of our activities of Ramadan 2020
On May 14, 2020, UMR distributed 100 food parcels to the most vulnerable families in Hudaidah, Yemen. A UMR representative explained that “people were crying from happiness.” UMR has been working in Yemen for years. We want to build bakeries to give free bread to people. Our goal is to improve the quality of life in Yemen by giving orphans the care they need. As donations continue, we will distribute as many food packages as possible.
UMR has been working as fast as possible to deliver life-saving food aid in Lebanon. Last week, we distributed 211 packages in the Palestinian Badawi camp in Tripoli. In the next three days, distributions will take place in the poorest villages of Tripoli. We already know that the state of the economy in Lebanon has put thousands of people in poverty. While we have begun to ease their suffering. But there is a lot more to be done.
UMR and @all4jor distributed 500 food parcels to the most vulnerable families in the country. Jerash, Amman, Zarqa, Jordan Valley, Marka, and Madaba will receive 500 food packs this week.
UMR has provided over five hundred grocery bags’ worth of food to low-income families throughout the United States. Volunteers in Philadelphia, PA and groups like the YMCA in Dallas, TX and Arlington, VA worked together to give people groceries. There is cooking oil, fresh bread, fruits, vegetables, pasta, sauce, and canned vegetables.
