Ramadan Kareem!

As we welcome the blessed month of Ramadan 2021, on behalf of the UMR Team, allow us to wish you and your loved ones a blessed and merry holy month ahead. After what felt like the longest, most challenging year of our lives, we happily welcome this holy month with open arms! 

During Ramadan 2021, we pledge to continue to “Pass the Plate” sharing meal plates, food packages, and curating spaces at our community tables to help empower beneficiaries and fellow citizens of the world, and spread hope. We invite you to do the same — to #PassthePlate and fill up on giving!

We continue to dedicate our drive to bring relief to struggling families across the world, while taking all the necessary safety precautions to keep everyone safe. Our mission is to continue building the necessary infrastructure to help communities flourish on their own.
