12 Years of Ramadan Charity Basket

Let's help 250 families in need this Ramadan/Eid with food and financial assistance!

For the 12th year running, SimplyIslam.sg is happy to continue our annual Ramadan project where we provide food and financial help to about 250 needy families in Singapore in time for Eid al-Fitr.

Watch a video of one of our recipients here: https://www.facebook.com/simplyislam.sg/videos/10155558736106264/


Our Partners - Muslim Kidney Action Association (MKAC) + Marine Parade CC + Darul Aman Mosque + Pasir Ris East Constituency

In the early days, we organised the charity drive with only Muslim Kidney Action Association (MKAC). The organisation provides care and support to Muslims who are suffering from kidney failure and chronic ailments, and provides financial assistance to the families concerned.

Over the years, we've collaborated with more organisations and groups, thereby increasing the Ramadan Charity Basket recipients!

On top of MKAC recipients, we will also be helping recipients from Marine Parade Community Club. The CC supports needy recipients living in Marine Parade, and in collaboration with the Malay Activity Executive Committee (MAEC), the Marine Parade needy recipients will receive the goodies from the Ramadan Charity Basket!

Additionally, we will continue to extend our hand to help some needy residents residing in Pasir Ris East CC, specifically, poor, needy and ailing residents of the rental flats along Pasir Ris Drive 3. These are some of the poorest people in the eastern part of Singapore, and reside in this heavily subsidised flats as they cannot afford their own homes. Many of them are old, ailing and unable to work due to their and and/or health conditions. Your contributions will go a long way towards giving them a semblance of normalcy, and a brighter, happier Eid Insha'Allah.

We will also continue to support our neighbour, the Darul Aman Mosque. The Mosque is a unique landmark with its traditional 'kampung' design, strategically located in the heartland of the indigenous Malay community. It serves various local ethnic congregants and embraces the larger community of foreign residents in Singapore. Beyond religious classes and festivities, its outreach includes facilitating family services, in particular the under privileged. Once again, the poor and needy residents under the care of the Darul Aman Mosque will receive the goodies of the Ramadan Charity Basket.

Giving food, Eid goodies and cash to over 250 needy families

Eid, or Hari Raya, is a time when families cook delicious food, wear beautiful clothes and spruce up their homes in anticipation of guests. In Singapore, celebrations go on for a month long!

Not all families can afford what the 'typical' Singaporean family enjoys and especially during Eid, it can feel even more lonely.

The food provisions include rice, milk, sugar, dry foods and other basic amenities including Eid novelties, and some cash.

Please donate generously so we can make Ramadan & Eid better for these families.

Annual Packing + Delivering

If you would like to volunteer to PACK and/or DELIVER the Baskets, please email your Name and Contact Number to enquiries@simplyislam.sg or call 65474407.

Each Basket has rice, milk, sugar, dry foods and other basic amenities including Hari Raya (Eid) novelties. They cost around $200 each.
