This year we intend to feed Rohingya (Bangladesh), Uighur (in Turkey) and Syria (in and around Idlib) refugees. Pledge an iftar for just R20 per meal and be among the blessed in the sight of your Creator.

Described as the “Most Persecuted People on Earth” the Rohingya people have been facing decades of indiscrimination and torture at the hands of the government of Burma and Rakhine Buddhists.

The 1982 citizenship law resulted in the exclusion of the Rohingya, a Muslim minority living in the westernmost part of Burma. They are not included in the official list of 135 “national races” who are guaranteed full citizenship. The predominantly Buddhist Myanmar considers them Bangladeshi but Bangladesh says they’re Burmese. As a result, they’re effectively stateless.
