Islamic Relief delivers Food Packs to the most needy families in developing communities. This year, the Islamic Relief global family is assisting 32 countries.
Group A ($90) Food Packs assist those in Bangladesh (Forcibly Displaced Myanmar Nationals), India or Sri Lanka.
Group B ($150) Food Packs assist those in Afghanistan, Albania, Bosnia, Ethiopia, Indonesia, Iraq, Jordan, Kenya, Lebanon, Mali, Niger, Pakistan, Palestine (Gaza), Somalia, Sudan, Türkiye (Syrian Refugees in Türkiye) or Yemen.
$40 One-Week Food Packs assist those most in need in any of the above countries.
The contents of our food packs vary based on which country they’re being delivered in. This is to account for the different needs and customs of people in different countries as well as supply. In general, each food pack contains local, staple food that a family of up to 5 people can enjoy for one whole month.
Contents may include rice, flour, vegetable oil, salt, pasta, beans, peas, sugar, lentils, dates and much more.
Compared to previous years, we have seen prices of goods increase by 50% on average.
In other countries, prices have increased by MORE than 50%, including in Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Ethiopia, Kenya, Lebanon, Niger, Pakistan, Palestine (Gaza), South Africa, South Sudan, Sri Lanka, Syria and Yemen
As a result of this, to maintain the quality of aid we are delivering, we have had to increase how much we allocate towards creating a food pack.
Despite this, our price increase is still well below market as we maintain strong relationships with suppliers and wholesalers around the world.
We work up to six months in advance preparing our Ramadan programme. We organised with food suppliers, identifying people most in need and making sure the food in the pack meets nutritional needs and local cultural expectations. We deliver to 34 countries with all the different variation in each country. Delivery is at the start of Ramadan. You can give your donation to the food packs at any time during the Ramadan Appeal. This means that even if you donate in the last 10 days, we ensure that a family has received their food pack on time.
