Approximately 27.4% of the population in Africa was classified as severely food insecure in 2016, which is almost four times as high as any other region. Alarmingly, food insecurity is on the rise, specifically in sub-Saharan Africa. From 2014 to 2016, food insecurity increased by about 3% (FAO, 2017)
We often time forget that in Africa our Muslim brothers and sisters (and children!) fast during the month of Ramadhan for the sake of Allah knowing their tables will not be adorned anything other than what they usually have – maize flour boiled in water, accompanied by a little bit of beans.
This Ramadhan remember your brother and sisters in Islam and donate 25 or 50 pounds to our Ramadhan campaign to provide families enough food for the whole month.
