WF-AID is proud to share it’s 2018 Ramadan Relief Report, which details how your generous donations were distributed to those less fortunate across the world.
Alhamdulillah, thanks to your valuable donations to our Ramadan Relief appeal, you helped us reach out to 125,159 people across 16 countries in Africa, Asia, Europe and the Middle East. Throughout Shahr Ramadan, WF-AID teams and partners distributed 19,705 nutritious Food packs, delivered 198 community iftars and funded 50 farming kits to those living in developing countries. We were even able to arrange Eid gifts to orphan children and widows in places like Syria.
The success of our reach has only been possible through a combined effort from the generous support of our donors, hard-working teams on the ground and tireless volunteers who have worked through Shahr Ramadan to help fundraise or deliver aid to those most in need.
Our Ramadan Relief report highlights some of the great work you helped us do and I hope you enjoy the read. It’s amazing to see the positive impact you’ve helped to make within our own communities and to thousands of families living in developing countries.
Please keep supporting WF-AID by donating generously.
Madiha Raza, Head of WF-AID.

For many years, international and civil society organizations have been marking ‘World Toilet Day’ all over the world. However it was not until July 2013 that the United Nations officially declared 19 November as ‘World Toilet Day’. The objective of World Toilet Day is to make sanitation problems a global priority and bring about changes in behaviour and policy on issues ranging from improving water management to ending open defecation.
The 2010 monsoon floods in Pakistan called for an urgent need for help in a crisis situation. Thanks to the generous, quick and ongoing support of donors from around the globe, The World Federation has been active in providing urgent aid, as well as long term support to the affected men, women and children whose lives were uprooted in a matter of minutes. These families lost their homes, their livelihood and in some instances, their loves ones.
