Phase-3 of HelpFeed Project 2021 of MIWF completed – 3686 beneficiary families so far

The COVID-19 pandemic and deteriorating economic situation globally has pushed many of those most vulnerable even deeper into extreme poverty. Besides the tragic toll on human life, with countries shutting their borders and doing quarantines, economies have taken a huge hit. The tragedy has taken a heavy toll on the Indian economy and the job losses are mounting, especially among the daily wage workers. Many laborers have lost their informal daily wages, and now face severe levels of food insecurity. MIWF is committed to feeding these poor families to the best of its ability. We are identifying poor families through our volunteer teams who are working on the ground.

Alhamdulillah with the support of our generous donors, our teams completed Phase-3 of the Helpfeed project and distributed the Ration packets to 3686 families so far in the following locations:

  • Maharashtra – Mumbai, Aurangabad, Bhiwandi, Solapur
  • Jammu and Kashmir 
  • Gujarat – Ahmedabad, Vadodara
  • Telangana – Hyderabad  
  • Kutch- Dhrab and Mundra
  • Karnataka – Mysuru, Bengaluru, Hassan
  • West Bengal – Kolkata
  • Manipur – Imphal
  • Jharkhand – Bokaro
  • Uttar Pradesh- Lucknow, Kanpur and Allahabad
  • Madhya Pradesh – Pali and Umaria

India is buckling under the worst Covid surge in the world.

Brave doctors, aid workers and local groups are doing all they can to fight this deadly virus but they’re extremely stretched, and need urgent help with life-saving supplies!

MIWF teams are working round the clock in Maharashtra, Karnataka, Telangana, Uttar Pradesh, West Bengal and Kutch and are determined to tackle the second wave by providing medicines, doctor consultation and oxygen supplies to the needy.

Note :-

  • We are targeting slum areas where daily wage earners and poor people live and are working with local Masjid Imams and our volunteers to identify needy families.
  • Once the families are identified we either tie-up with local grocery store to give the ration kit to the needy family or our volunteers will deliver the food packets at their doorstep
  • The food packet we have planned will have rice, wheat/wheat flour, sugar, tea, pulses and oil which will be enough for a family of 5 to sustain for 30 days. 

Please donate Zakat Sadaqah for Ramadan Help Feed Program

Almighty Allah says in the Qur’an:
وَأَقِيمُوا۟ ٱلصَّلَوٰةَ وَءَاتُوا۟ ٱلزَّكَوٰةَ ۚ وَمَا تُقَدِّمُوا۟ لِأَنفُسِكُم مِّنْ خَيْرٍۢ تَجِدُوهُ عِندَ ٱللَّهِ ۗ إِنَّ ٱللَّهَ بِمَا تَعْمَلُونَ بَصِيرٌۭ
Translation: And (always) establish Prayer and pay Zakat (the Alms-due) regularly. And whatever virtue you will send ahead, you shall find it with Allah. Surely, Allah is watching all that you are doing.►(Surah Al-Baqarah Chapter 2: Verse 110)


We should all remember that Zakat is not just a duty on those with money, but a right that the poor have over us. Zakat has the power to release millions of people around the world from poverty. With the  intermittent lock downs, crippling the livelihood of thousands of daily wagers and small businessmen, we must recognize that the time to act is now and help the deserving families with our Zakat/Sadaqah amounts.


MIWF uses your Zakat to help the most vulnerable people in the poorest regions of India. MIWF is seeking your support for its Ramadan projects. All your Ramadan donations i.e. Zakat, Sadaqah, Fidya, Kafarrah – will be used directly to give food packages to poor families and give Sahar and Iftar to them. MIWF teams are working in 66 districts/cities across India to help feed the poor and daily wager families. The cities where our volunteer teams are working include : Mumbai, Navi Mumbai, Bhiwandi, Thane, Pune, Nasik, Malegaon, Amalner, Lonawla, New Delhi, Prayagraj, Lucknow, Kashmir, Pulwama, Srinagar, Bandipore, Pratapgarh, Pali(MP), Kanpur, Chandigarh, Karim Nagar, Cachar, Aurangabad,Jalgaon, Lonavla, Mysuru, Bengaluru, Hassan, Hyderabad, Baroda, Ahmedabad, Bhuj and  Mundra, Kolkata etc.  Our teams are also serving community kitchens at 5 locations, performing sanitisation of public places and delivering medicines wherever needed. With your generous contributions and support we were able to reach 18,700+ families since the lockdown started. We need your continued support as there are 1000’s of more families that need our help in Ramadan.  

Your Zakat/Sadaqah has the power to transform lives. So please be as generous as you can. Please donate today to help us keep poor families nourished, safe and healthy during Ramadan and throughout the year.
