Dear friend and supporter,For the past several years, one of our most popular programs around this time of year has been what we affectionately refer to as "One Thousand Baskets for One Thousand Families". Last year, were able to help over 1,000 families.
The program is usually initiated just before the start of the month of Ramadan, which is not only the traditional month of fasting, but also of genuine selflessness and display of charity to others. The program's success and popularity mainly come from its simple but powerful message of providing a month’s worth of dietary allowance for 1,000 families around the world-- all at a time when food is most often scarce and prices too high.
As you know, Child Foundation is not a religious organization. Nor does it ever get involved with projects like this on religious or ideological grounds. What we are doing is providing the most basic of necessities (in this case, food) for families with children at a time of year when this need is probably the highest, and pressure simply too much to bear alone.
This year, we estimate the cost of these families’ food packages at $45 for small and $90 for larger families.
We urge all of our kind and wonderful donors to be especially generous at this time of the year, to participate in this very worthy project and to help fulfill a very real need for these families around the world today.
Wishing you and your family the best of health and fortune, and hoping that this year we can help more than a thousand families.
