Donate to Children of Adam this Ramadan
As we observe sawm throughout the month of Ramadan, millions of our brothers and sisters around the world continue to live without basic nutrition as they do the rest of the year-round. Children of Adam are accepting your Zakat ul-Fitr (Fitrana) donations which we will distribute across those most deserving.
As well as Fitrana, we are also accepting Fidya and Kaffarah donations for those that have missed a day or more of fasting during Ramadan. Fidya (which should be paid by any Muslim with good reason to miss a day’s fast) is set at the value of feeding one hungry person per day (£5), while Kaffarah (paid by a Muslim who intentionally does not observe sawm without good reason) is the value of feeding 60 hungry people for each day of fasting that is missed.
All donations, obligatory or voluntary, can be made via our donations page here. Your support for Children of Adam and our cause is greatly appreciated.
