In The Name Of God Most
Compassionate and Most Merciful
“SERVICE TO MANKIND IS WORSHIP OF GOD.”
Ramadan is the month in which
all Muslims reflect inwards to gain nearness of God. Fasting and charity go hand
in hand. As active members of this community, Muslim Women’s Coalition
asks you to join them in this blessed month of giving by providing Ramadan Baskets (2004) to those women who have left abuse
and are seeking shelter with their children.
Members helped by:
· Donating and collecting new items according to the need of the shelters
Delivering to the place of collection with a list of items donated
and names of donors.
· Helping make baskets.
· Helping deliver the baskets to the shelters.
· Involving and recognizing the youth for their contribution and community service hours
The shelters we made baskets
for this year were:
Abused Women's Shelter
TACTS - The Arlington Community Temporary Shelter http://www.tacts.org/
Bethany House Of Northern Virginia http://www.bethanyhousenova.org/
Muslim Women's Coalition is a
non-profit (non-political) charitable organization that stands alone on its merit for helping others in their need without
any distinction in religion, race or ethnicity. This unique platform allows
you to come together in the true spirit of giving and caring for those in need.
By the Grace of God, in 2004,
with your generosity MWC donated large baskets to more families from different faith traditions in three abused women’s
shelters in three counties in addition to teen patients in INOVA Fairfax Hospital. Go here to learn more.
Thank you and may Allah bless
