The Letterkenny Islamic Association are hosting a second fasting challenge in support of their local food bank.
The challenge will take place during the month of Ramadan, where Muslims who are physically able are required to fast from daybreak to sunset every day for a month.
On June 2nd 2018, the association are encouraging non-Muslims and people in the community to get involved for one day in the sponsored Fasting Challenge.
A spokesperson said: “We’re inviting people to try fasting the way Muslims do for one day during Ramadan on Saturday the 2nd of June. All money raised will be given to the We Care LK Food Bank. People below the poverty line often rely on food banks to be able to feed themselves and their children. Please help them out!”
During Ramadan, Muslims fast from dawn to dusk every day for a month. There are certain restrictions on who can fast due to medical reasons, so please read the guide carefully before considering taking part.
At the end of the fast, everyone is welcome to join a ‘break fast’ with ethnic food at the Letterkenny Community Centre on Saturday the 2nd of June at 9:30 pm. Registration is required ahead of this meal via https://islaminletterkenny.com/2018/05/21/second-annual-charity-fasting-challenge/
The Letterkenny Islamic Association raised €1,300 for the We Care LK Food Bank in 2017, and are hoping to raise even more in 2018.
