YOU MAY NOT STOP POVERTY BUT YOU CAN STOP HUNGER
Help make a difference for the urban poor families in Malaysia
Your donation to Al-I’tisam’s Ceria FoodBank will help at least 1,000 families from hunger across Malaysia, who can be your own relatives or neighbors.
Ibn Abbas reported: The Prophet, peace, and blessings be upon him, said, “He is not a believer whose stomach is filled while the neighbor to his side goes hungry.” (al-Sunan al-Kubra’ 19049)
WHO / WHAT IS CERIA FOODBANK?
Ceria FoodBank was born in September 2018 to alleviate local hunger by developing food banks in communities where they are needed and by supporting food banks where they exist throughout Malaysia.
Al-I’tisam Ceria Foodbank is one of Al-I’tisam’s anchor project for Malaysia. It was launched in October 2018 when the country has been going through a challenging time due to the unpredictable global economy and the rising cost of living, which greatly impacted on people living in urban areas, thus contributing to the increase in the number of urban poor.
To date, Al-I’tisam Ceria FoodBank has been helping about 1,000 families since its launching, through its “Ceria Food Aid” program, but the demand for this free food programs have been increasing due to the factors mentioned above.
HOW WILL YOUR DONATION HELP?
Every dollar that you donate, will help to feed…..
… the poor and the needy; the jobless; single-mothers with children; families that loss the sole breadwinner; the victim of a natural disaster; sudden/temporary loss of income due to illness or retrenchment/other factors.
… and many more, from hunger especially the urban poor.
There are not enough “foodbanks” to meet the need throughout the country.
In fact, “foodbank” is relatively new to Malaysia, it only gains traction after the Government of Malaysia announced the need to have food banks in the country as a way to tackle poverty and hunger.
Ceria FoodBank may fill the gap by expanding to other cities within Malaysia with your support.
Hence, your generous donations will surely make the difference.
