Rice Bag Project
Abu Malik al-Ashari (r.a.) narrated that Allah’s Messenger (s.a.w) said: “Cleanliness is half of faith. Prayer is a light. Charity is proof (of one’s faith). Endurance is a brightness and the Qur’an is a proof on your behalf or against you. (Muslim, 432)
Since 2007 we have:
Distributed over 800 rice bags
Helped more than 15 Islamic institutions.
By 2020 our aim is to deliver more than 2000 Rice bags
Rice Bag Project in Bangladesh
Poverty in Bangladesh is currently high where majority of the people are facing difficulties to feed their own families. It is estimated that at 31.5% (109,600,000), Bangladesh has the highest percentage of its population living below the national poverty line. By giving one rice bag, a family can be fed for 2 months giving those in need a stress relief from hunger.
In 2017, Goreeb Fund has spent over £15,000 providing over 800 rice bags to various different educational institutes serving poor and needy students including family members. All the families that we deliver rice to are needy and the gratitude expressed is exceptionally overwhelming.
Our main target by 2020 is to deliver rice bags to different districts around Bangladesh, including rural villages, feeding thousands of students in Islamic institutions and those families that are in need of food, suffering from starvation
Rice donations is not just a mere task since majority of the families are located in remote villages and our little car struggles to reach them, however our team delivers and does what it takes because we believe that with every little struggle, surely there would be ease.
