Every year the Ri’ayah Foundation distributes food during the holy month of Ramadan to families in different communities in Liberia. Many are living in penury, and three square meals—or even one!—per day is a luxury many families cannot afford. In fact, food insecurity is a fact of life: almost 85% of Liberia’s population survive on less than $1.25 per day, and in many households, almost two-thirds of what little money they have is spent on food.
Out of a passion to help, Project Ramadan was born. We started with an annual distribution of food to students and families in our sponsorship program. We have distributed food to families in the Po River, Clay Ashland, and Iron Factory communities for the past five years. Each year, we expand our distributions by adding another community, thus increasing the number of beneficiaries. We would like to expand to many other communities and villages as well, but this cannot be achieved without the unstinting support from our generous patrons. Please, support us to reach out to the starving ones. We need to give to those who need us the most. Your support will save the hungry and help our program to thrive.
