The YMA also takes donations to provide Iftar (breaking of the fast) meals to the poor.
The Prophet ﷺ said:
Whoever feeds a fasting person will have a reward like that of the fasting person, without any reduction in his reward.

WHAT IS ZAKAT??
Our brief guide can help you
Sadaqah al-Fitr, Fidyah, Kaffaarah
Sadaqah al-Fitr has a time limit for its delivery, while Kaffaarah has a daily and/or personage requirement in order to be valid – without which its repetition would be necessary.
YMA works with these principles in mind to ensure compatibility with all schools of thought.
Exact data of these donations are difficult as they fluctuate greatly year-to-year. However, last year:
Sadaqah al-Fitr was distributed to almost 1,500 families.
Iftar al-Sa’im (Fidyah/Kaffaarah compatible) was carried out daily at over 15 Masjids and institutions where men, women and children were among the fed. Daily beneficiaries numbered over 850.
The correct amount required for Sadaqah al-Fitr depends on the country of the donor, however, the YMA recommends US$4 per person
Fidyah is recommended at the rate of US$2 per person.
Kaffaarah is recommended at US$20 for small Kaffaarah (e.g. kaffaarah of Yameen – oath breaking – 10 day).
Kaffarah is recommended at US$100 for large Kaffarah (i.e. Violating Ramadan Fast – 60 days)
