JCRC, OBAT Helpers, MAI, IHC and Beth-El Zedeck invite you to break bread with them on May 25th 2019. The interfaith Iftar is being held to raise awareness and funds for Rohingya refugees who after having fled persecution, violence and genocide in Myanmar, are now settled in the world’s largest refugee camp in Bangladesh. OBAT Helpers, an Indianapolis based nonprofit, addressed this humanitarian crisis by providing initial relief to the refugees through distribution of meals and essential items of daily living, followed with expansive efforts to rebuild their lives through provision of shelters, education, empowerment opportunities and health care.
Iftar or breaking of the Ramadan fast will take place at 9:01 pm. This evening meal will be preceded by an hour long program in which you will hear from representatives of the sponsoring organizations and learn about the impact of the Rohingya crisis.
We hope that you will join us on this inspirational evening to stand with Rohingya refugees.
In the spirit of charitable giving and service, MAI wants to sponsor some opportunities for the Muslim community to volunteer during Ramadan. IMCA and Second Presbyterian Church are two of the food pantries in Indianapolis looking for volunteers. Below, you can sign up for a shift at either of these food pantries. If you have any questions, concerns, or want more information, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
