On 22nd November 2014, the Shia Asna Ashri Jamaat (SAAJ) organized an Interfaith Symposium, a platform for dialogue, to encourage unity and cooperation among diverse religions & communities across Kenya with various speakers from the Government and different faiths presenting their views on topics relating to the influence of religion on various aspects of our lives and our country as a whole.
The month of Ramadhan is a time for prayer, fasting and self-reformation. Yet, it is often also a time when we indulge (or over-indulge in many cases!) in unhealthy, fried and fatty foods!
This year, we ask if you will join us in taking the 30 day challenge? Take the 30 day challenge and say no to all those fried and fatty foods to help us raise money for the Ramadhan Relief Fund.
Can you sacrifice the foods you love for 30 days? Join us and set up your Justgiving page today!
Notes: The World Federation is pleased to partner up with Soraya Janmohamed, health coach to encourage healthy eating this holy month of Ramadhan. It's simple and easy to participate; ask friends and family to sponsor you to eat no fried foods for 30 days and, at the same time, raise money for the Ramadhan Relief Fund.
For those who may not think they'll manage for the full 30 days, why not try 10 days or challenge yourself during the weekdays and see how you get on? We'd love to hear your stories! You can message us on facebook or tweet us using the hashtag #saynotofriedfood
This Ramadhan, The World Federation is once again inviting children and youth from around the world to join our 4th Annual Children Helping Children Campaign to raise awareness and donations for the Ramadhan Relief Fund.
Every year, barely a week after the celebration of Eid, Shias all over the world gather together to remember the tragedy of The Demolition of al-Baqi, a destruction from which this blessed cemetery has never recovered.
