Feed the hungry is an initiative formed by Birmingham Muslim youth league sisters (MYL-S). It takes place every year in the blessed month of Ramadhan and aims to provide free food for the homeless and hungry.
The sisters took to the streets with home-made food and donations made by MYL-S members. The volunteers gathered together in Birmingham city centre and handed out food to those less fortunate than them whilst observing fasts themselves.
Throughout the day members of the public approached us and congratulated us one our work. Some were greatly impressed which led them to donating money towards the cause. Most importantly the hungry and homeless people, who benefitted from the cause were hugely grateful and expressed great happiness once they were made aware of what we were doing. The response from the hungry and homeless was so great that absolutely no food was wasted or left behind.
In conclusion the event was a great success, Alhamdulillah, pleasing both the hungry and the volunteers who were extremely privileged to be part of such as humbling experience and inshaAllah we plan to do the same next year with even bigger and better results!
