The Islamic Circle of North America (ICNA) Sisters Canada carried out numerous charity drives and events during Ramadan.
“We thought it would take at least 10 days to collect $20,000, but to our surprise we achieved our target in a week,” says a release issued by the voluntary organization.
“Other than charity, this month is also about spiritual reflection, self-purification and devotion to God. We have not stopped working and volunteering, just that we are doing everything virtually now,” the release adds.
Volunteers from the not-for-profit, registered charity have actively participated in community work through the year, including helping women’s shelters, organizing free grocery racks, sending gifts for front-line workers, conducting interactive online webinars, participating in blood donation campaigns and celebrating Earth Day.
The organization also conducted interfaith Ramadan trivia contests to spread awareness about the month. The winners, who will be announced soon after Eid-ul-Fitr, will be given Amazon and Tim Hortons gift cards.
