On some occasions the YMA is asked by local institutions i.e. prisons, schools, communities etc. to assist with providing food (or Qurans, Islamic literature, clothes etc.) to their inmates/students etc.
These requests do not follow patterns nor have set amounts of funds requested. As such, we cannot provide an amount that is required. Due to this, the YMA normally receives a request and only then initiates fund-raising for this.
That being said, the necessity of these projects is substantial and if significant funds are received in advance, the YMA would be more proactive in seeking out such needs in these and other institutions.
The most common types of requests are for food during Ramadan and Islamic literature.
This is a great opportunity for Dawah work as almost all of these institutions have Muslim and non-Muslim beneficiaries.
