RAMADAN 2013 CAMPAIGN

Breaking FAST, Breaking BARRIERS:©

Host Iftar at your place & Support an inclusive space


WHY JOIN THE CAMPAIGN?

All persons have the right to live and participate with dignity as a part of Society, regardless of ability or disability. Individuals with disabilities require our support and it is our responsibility to ensure that their rights as human beings are met and protected. Let's do our part this Ramadan.

Muslims with disabilities and their families have repeatedly stated that there is no support within the community; that they do not know about their rights; and that mainstream services do not respond adequately to their unique needs

  • People who are deaf or hard of hearing have to struggle to read the Imam’s lips if they can at Juma because there are no American Sign Language interpreters regularly at the mosques. 

    • The funds you help raise will be used to invest in alternative communication methods so people can fully participate at Islamic gatherings. 
  • Children with learning disabilities have no opportunities for Islamic education because there are no programs to accommodate them.

    • The funds you help raise will be used to expand weekly activity programs so more people with disabilities can access and benefit from the programs. 
  • Caregivers of families with disabilities can’t go to hajj or umra because there is no alternative respite and residential housing for Muslims with disabilities. 

    • The funds you help raise will enable the investments needed for the development and implementation of respite and residential housing opportunities that meet the requirements of faith and culture.
