Assalam-o-alaikum wa rehmatullah,
Humanity First is launching a campaign "Fasting to Feed' Campaign" (May 17th, 2018 - June 14th, 2018) in this Sacred Month of Ramadhan. Respected Amir Sahib has urged all Ahmadi Muslim to come froward in these blessed days of Ramadhan, the month of making extra sacrifices and prayers to seek forgiveness and nearness to their creator.
By fasting for over 16 hours a day in this month, all Muslims get a small taste of "hunger" thus giving many a realization of the pain endured by millions of starving fellow human beings.
Please note that:
In our country almost 50 million fellow Americans do not know if they will be able to have a meal in the evening. For many school age children, the only guaranteed meal is the one that they get at school during the week.
This year again, Humanity First USA invites its supporters from all faiths to come together to fight hunger & starvation in America during the month of Ramadan.

Fasting to Feed 2018
May 16 - June 17, 2018
Hunger among fellow Americans is real. According to ‘Feeding America’41 million people in the United states including 13 million children are battling with hunger.
With a vision to make America hunger free, the Food Security program in the USA seeks to reduce hunger and food wastage, provide food to our communities and raise awareness.
By fasting for over 16 hours a day in this month, all Muslims get a small taste of 'hunger' thus giving many a realization of the pain endured by millions of starving fellow human beings. But unlike many who go on to enjoy their favorite foods after breaking their fast in the evening, millions do not have the luxury of having even a meal every day.
We urge everyone who receives this massage to donate at least the value of one meal worth while you fast to feed a hungry stomach. Our supporters from other faiths can also try to experience a fast or skip a meal and donate that small amount to feed children, mothers, elders who are suffering because of hunger in America.
This campaign will not only support Humanity First USA's food pantries and soup kitchens across the USA but will also support many of our partners in several cities.
