Goodwill Caravan team continue our Ramadan appeal for refugees stranded in Greece.

Ramadan food packages have been going well each set of packages has dried and canned food high in protein, fresh veg and fruit and chicken enough to last a family for 1-2 weeks depending on how large families are. We have successfully distributed Ramadan food packs & hot iftar meals to 500 families..Each food bag costs €28 Euros and each full hot meal costs €3.50. If you want to buy a food pack to feed a vulnerable family for a week in Ramadan it would cost you €28 and if you want to feed a vulnerable family of 4 iftar for a week it would cost you €24.
