Zakat-ul-Fitr Brings a Glimpse of Joy in Mogadishu

The Somalis smile brightly as they received Eid Gifts from the benefactors

ACTNews, MOGADISHU – The people of Mogadishu in Somalia still live amidst tension and fear. The conflict has forced most of its residents to live in economic difficulty. The prices of food and basic needs are too high for them to afford.

Eid-ul-Fitr is in a few days, but they have not planned their celebration. No new clothes or Eid allowance for the people of Mogadishu. However, in Ramadan 1440 AH, a glimpse of hope came for the people of Mogadishu in the form of Zakat-ul-Fitr that is administered by Global Zakat – Aksi Cepat Tanggap (ACT). ACT ends this month by giving Eid gifts for the children of Somalia after spending almost thirty days fasting in the midst of difficulties.
