The 1ForOne appeal is active during Ramadan but we accept your donations all year around, whether you would like to pay Zakat, Sadaqah, Fidyah or Kaffarah.
MiN uses your donations to provide wholesome and nutritious hot meals to impoverished families, children and orphans for their Suhoor and Iftar during the month of Ramadan in the most poverty-stricken areas.We work with our existing partners on the ground in Syria, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Gaza and Yemen to prepare and distribute the meals.
In Syria, Pakistan and Bangladesh, a single meal costs £1; in Gaza, its £2 for each meal and £4 in Yemen for each meal.
There are two types of payments due for each day of fasting that is missed:
For those who cannot fast due to ill health or old age and cannot make up the fast afterwards, they are required to feed a poor person for one day, this payment is called Fidyah.
The current rate at which this is payable is £1 for two meals each day to feed someone in Syria, Pakistan and Bangladesh. If one were to miss all 30 fasts during Ramadan, their Fidyah amount would total £60 and give one person two meals a day for 30 days.
Kaffarah is paid by those who deliberately miss or break a fast in the month of Ramadan without a valid reason.
To atone for the missed/broken fast, a person must either fast continuously for 60 days, or provide 60 poor people with two meals a day. The cost to feed a single person is dependent on the country they reside in. If the cost to feed one person for a day in a specific country was £2 (£1 per meal), it would cost an individual making a Kaffarah payment £120 for each fast missed/broken.
The table below gives further examples.
|Country||Number of Fasts Missed/Broken||Fidyah To Be Paid||Kaffarah To Be paid|
|Syria, Bangladesh & Pakistan||1||£2||£120|
