MEXICO CITY, MEXICO April 26, 2024 — Baitulmaal, a Dallas-based international humanitarian nonprofit, recently distributed food packages that provided 79,500 meals to families in Mexico in time for the Ramadan season.

Food packages were distributed to families living in Aragón, Toluca, Cuernavaca, and Tecamac. In addition to food packages, 1,500 of the meals were provided during community iftars in Cancun, Playa del Carmen, and Monterrey where families came together to break their fast with Baitulmaal.

According to Elizabeth Sohail, domestic programs manager at Baitulmaal, the majority of the beneficiaries included people with disabilities, the elderly, or single mothers.

Observing Ramadan in Mexico can be challenging for Muslims because of the small population,” Sohail said. “Our donors across the world stepped in to provide a sense of community to our brothers and sisters in Mexico.”

According to the Pew Research Center, there are an estimated 840,000 Muslims in Latin America, and this number is growing. As minorities, many struggle to practice their faith and meet their needs amidst the region’s growing poverty levels.

Baitulmaal has been in the region providing food assistance to families in need. If you would like to learn more about or contribute to these programs at Baitulmaal, please visit their website at
