You can bring a smile to the face of an orphaned child for just £20. Your donation can provide items such as food, clothing and toys, ensuring that a child living in the most desperate circumstances can feel the joy of opening a gift this Eid.
Before the Eid ul-Fitr prayers are made on the day of Eid, it’s time to pay Fitrana or Zakat ul-Fitr for 2022, the donation of food that ensures those living in poverty can enjoy a staple meal on this Festival of Breaking the Fast.
Fitrana is only a small contribution but can make a world of difference to those living in poverty and the Fitrana meaning is to ensure everyone can celebrate together after a month of day-fasting and sacrifice. It is a contribution that is made by Muslims who have completed their fast, in the instance that they have food in excess of their needs.
Typically, Zakat ul-Fitr was donated in the form of a food staple, such as rice and flour. However, as it’s difficult to arrange for small amounts of staple food to reach distant communities, Fitrana charities such as Orphans in Need take your monetary donation and distribute this as food to families living in poverty.
The owed Fitrana 2022 UK total is determined at £3-£5 from every able-bodied Muslim. This is the figure comparable to one saa, or four times the volume of food that one can scoop up with two hands; this was designated by the Prophet Muhammed (PBUH).
Fitrana or Zakat ul-Fitr is a time-sensitive donation. If you are contributing Zakat ul Fitr 2022, please ensure that this is ahead of Eid and inform Orphans in Need about the intent of your contribution.
In commemoration of Ramadan ending, elder family members tend to give thankfully received presents to children and young adults in the family. Eid presents for children often reflect the most recent season and include delicious snacks to indulge in on, Eidi (money), and gifts that encourage meaningful use such as activity books and notepads.
Eid is not a time to give extravagantly, instead, gifts exchanged should be thoughtful and considerate. While gift-giving is encouraged for treating children on Eid, you should never spend outside of your means.
Orphaned children are going without eid presents and food this Eid. You can bring a smile to the face of an orphaned child for just £20 by giving them an Eid Gift which can deliver necessities including food, clothing and toys, promising that a desperate child can experience the delight or an Eid gift.
In the absence of your generous contribution, a helpless child will be without a present for Eid, as well as a secure space to lay their head.
Your contributions will enable Orphans in Need to provide orphaned children with an Eid gift this year. Please donate today so that a child in need can smile this Eid.
