Give peace this Ramadan to those affected by four decades of war in Afghanistan.
Orphan Sponsorship Scheme
Ramadan Kareem from Aryana Aid! We wish you a blessed Ramadan, filled with peace and closeness to Allah (SWT). Let’s make this month a good one for ourselves and for our brothers and sisters in need.
Help Afghans living in crisis this Ramadan.
11 million Afghans are facing food poverty. Drought, conflict and political instability have forced families from their homes. Many have left their villages with nothing. Can you help them?
After four decades of war, Afghanistan is in ruin. Families have been torn apart, hundreds of communities have been uprooted, and millions of widows and orphans are struggling to find food and water. The situation has been exacerbated by unprecedented levels of inflation. With the price of foodstuff skyrocketing, displaced Afghans are on the brink of starvation.
“Whoever fulfilled the needs of his brother, Allah will fulfil his needs; whoever brought his [Muslim] brother out of a discomfort, Allah will bring him out of the discomforts of the Day of Resurrection […].” (Bukhari)
Every Ramadan, your donations help us feed and uplift people living in extreme poverty. This Ramadan, your support will save people who continue to rely on us. Here are some of the ways you can help them.
Give Food: With the current crisis Afghans are facing, many people will start and end their fasts hungry this Ramadan. Can you help by donating essential Iftar packs and warm meals?

Sponsor an Orphan: Millions of Afghan orphans survive through begging. Many are living with disabilities. Through orphan sponsorship, you can ensure a child is fed, sheltered and given medical assistance. You can also give a disabled child mobility.
SPONSOR AN ORPHAN
Farozan was orphaned at the age of 6. Her mother struggled hard to provide for her five children with a meagre income from baking bread in a bakery. Through Aryana Aid’s orphan sponsorship programme, Farozan’s quality of life improved.
‘When I was sick a few months ago, I had no one to take care of me,’ Farozan said. ‘But one person from Aryana Aid’s team in Kabul took me to the hospital. The doctor checked me and informed us that I had Hepatitis B. He said that if I did not receive treatment and medications regularly, I would lose my life. I took the medication and recovered, so I am grateful for the Aryana Aid team.’
Today Farozan is 11 years old. She and her family live in Ghazni and continue to thrive through the support they receive from Aryana Aid.
What is Ramadan?
Ramadan is a month like no other. It is a time in which Muslims refocus their energy on their relationship with Allah, through intensive worship, and abstinence from food and water during the daytime fasts.
Ibn ’Abbas said, “Allah’s Messenger (PBUH) was the most generous of people in charity, but he was generous to the utmost in the month of Ramadan. Jibril (AS) would meet him every year during the month of Ramadan until it ended, and Allah’s Messenger (PBUH) recited to him the Qur’an; and when Jibril (AS) met him, Allah’s Messenger (PBUH) was more generous in giving charity than the blowing wind.” (Muslim)
Ramadan is also a month that celebrates community and compassion. Through abstinence, we feel more acutely the plight of those less fortunate, for whom hunger and thirst are a reality. Our giving of charity is marked by urgency and empathy. And our support of the needy, through Sadaqah and Zakat is rewarded by Allah (SWT) exponentially during this blessed month.

About Fidyah and Kaffarah
At Aryana Aid, we accept Fidyah and Kaffarah payments and use them to feed families living in extreme poverty. So, what are Fidyah and Kaffarah and how do they differ?
‘Whoever feeds a person breaking his fast will earn the same reward as him, without anything being lessened from the reward of the fasting person’. (Tirmidhi)
Fasting is compulsory during Ramadan. Muslims who fail to keep the Ramadan fast have to pay compensation in the form of either Fidyah or Kaffarah.
FIDYAH – £5 A DAY
KAFFARAH – £300 FOR 60 PEOPLE
£70 – MONTHLY FOOD PACK FOR A FAMILY
