ACCRA, GHANA April 17, 2024 — Baitulmaal, a Dallas-based international humanitarian nonprofit, recently distributed food packages that provided 69,000 meals to families in Ghana in time for the Ramadan season.

Food packages that included items such as rice, pasta, beans, canned goods, tea, and cooking oil were provided to families in the Accra region.

According to Elora Bashir, program operations manager at Baitulmaal, over 600 of these meals were provided during a community iftar where families came together to break their fast with Baitulmaal.

“The generosity and compassion of our donors is limitless,” Bashir said. “Thanks to them, mothers in Ghana went to bed every night knowing there will be food for their children the next day.”

According to the World Food Programme (WFP), poverty is a major cause of hunger and malnutrition in Ghana. Despite rapid urbanization, poverty and food insecurity are caused by inefficient food systems. Farmers face challenges from climate change, low prices, or poor road infrastructure.

In addition to this distrubution in Ghana, Baitulmaal has previously provided fresh meat for Udhiyah and Ramadan packages. If you would like to learn more about or contribute to these programs at Baitulmaal, please visit their website at
