Iftar (إفطار رمضان) is the evening meal with which Muslims end their daily Ramadan fast at sunset at the time of the call to prayer. It is often done as a community, with people gathering to break their fast together.
I was invited to participate to an Iftar thanks to the non-profit organization Ray of Hope, who I got to know through my Singaporean friend who ask led me to help him for a photography project for them.
With regulations easing up, many families will finally get the chance to revel in the upcoming Hari Raya Aidilfitri celebrations. But for some, Hari Raya will remain a quiet affair that looks no different from the daily struggles that they go through. But we believe that you can change that.
I was, with a team from Ray Of Hope and a couple other volunteers, visiting a single mother with her 2 children and getting to break fast with them so they felt less isolated.
More so this year Passover, Ramadan, and Easter all fall in April, a coincidence that happens only about every 33 years.
So happy Good Friday, Chag Sameach and Ramadan Kareem.
