It only takes seconds to share the blessings of Ramadan

Every few seconds, somewhere in the world, someone is forced to flee their home leaving behind the life they once knew.

 

Yet today, during the month of giving and sharing, together we can help families to have a roof over their heads, a warm meal for iftar, clean water to drink and wash with, and the hope they need to continue building a safer future.
