Since the start of the holy month of Ramadan, the Kingdom has launched a number of programs to provide Iftar (fast-breaking) meals to needy Muslims in several different countries.

The International Islamic Relief Organization of Saudi Arabia (IIROSA), an affiliate of the Muslim World League (MWL), has begun the implementation of a project to provide Iftar meals in remote areas in Afghanistan. During the first six days of Ramadan, 1,000 food baskets were distributed.

Meanwhile, in Turkey, the Saudi National Campaign for the Relief of the Brothers in Syria launched a Ramadan Iftar Meal Project for fasting Syrian refugees.

Finally, Saudi Ambassador in Khartoum Faisal bin Hamed Mualla has kicked off the Project of the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Abdullah bin Abdulaziz Al-Saud for Providing Iftar Meals for Ramadan Fasters in Sudan. The Saudi Embassy’s Religious Attaché, Dr. Sulaiman Al-Fiheid, said that the project, launched four years ago, provides diversified meals and has targeted 375,000 needy fasters in Sudan.
