It is pleasing to report that hot meals were provided daily to over 2,000 people at the time of Iftaar in Dinajpur, Gazipur, Khulna, Kishoreganj, Mymenshing and Rangpur during Ramadhan 2011. Nazimuddin Mukarram, one of the co-ordinators of this programme had this to say: `In Ramadhan there are many distressed poor people who keep their fasts with little or no food. Realizing this, Islahul Muslimeen Parishad Bangladesh (IMPB) initiated this programme with financial assistance from the MWI to feed the fasting poor. Besides providing Iftaar, the people are taught how to recite the Quraan correctly and collective Taleem takes place on a daily basis`. The cost for feeding one person for the whole month is £10.
Arrangements were also made for the distribution of 700 Iftaar Packs in many areas including Netrokona and Sylhet. One of the distributors is Qamruz Zaman, here he sums up the feelings of the people: `The families are so poor that many of them would have to open their fasts with water and a very small amount of food, thanks to the brothers and sisters of the UK for providing these Iftaar Packs, it is so pleasing to see the happiness on the faces of these families, the duas from their hearts will definitely bring barakah to the donors`. Each pack cost £15.
