The month of Ramadhan is a time for prayer, fasting and self-reformation. Yet, it is often also a time when we indulge (or over-indulge in many cases!) in unhealthy, fried and fatty foods!
This year, we ask if you will join us in taking the 30 day challenge? Take the 30 day challenge and say no to all those fried and fatty foods to help us raise money for the Ramadhan Relief Fund.
Can you sacrifice the foods you love for 30 days? Join us and set up your Justgiving page today!
Notes: The World Federation is pleased to partner up with Soraya Janmohamed, health coach to encourage healthy eating this holy month of Ramadhan. It's simple and easy to participate; ask friends and family to sponsor you to eat no fried foods for 30 days and, at the same time, raise money for the Ramadhan Relief Fund.
For those who may not think they'll manage for the full 30 days, why not try 10 days or challenge yourself during the weekdays and see how you get on? We'd love to hear your stories! You can message us on facebook or tweet us using the hashtag #saynotofriedfood
