Eid-ul-Fitr 2017 is getting closer and as we all know, Ramadan is a time for helping those around us and giving to the less fortunate. The month itself serves to purify our hearts and restores some humility back into our lives.
As we fast and pray in this auspicious month, we look forward to the celebration that concludes the month of Ramadan. More importantly, it is our children that look forward to this festival even more. This is why many parents try to make the day special for the children rather than for themselves. Some often treat their youngsters to new clothing and accessories to wear on the day itself; many are given gifts on the day – mainly in the form of money.
It is this kind of time that we should also be thinking about all the children in the world who don’t have these privileges; those who have been orphaned, those whose families do not have the sufficient means to be able to make this day special for them.
So, along with treating your own children this Eid-ul-Fitr 2017, why not also treat a child in need with Muslim Aid’s Sponsor a Child campaign? Your sponsorship can provide a child with sufficient food, clothing, medical aid, an education and the emotional support to help and encourage them to increase their confidence to push towards a positive future.
Seeing children progress is a blessing, they are the pioneers of our future. Your regular donation will ensure year-round support for them, inclusive of our other major campaigns, such as Ramadan and Qurbani. Not only this, the children’s families will also receive sufficient support with basic needs such as nutrition and shelter.
So give a gift worth giving and sponsor a child this year for Eid-ul-Fitr 2017; you support could make a significant difference to a child’s future.
