Gulshan Iftar Camp: Iftar For 500 Fasting Individuals Every Day This Ramadan

Gulshan Iftar Camp: Iftar For 500 Fasting Individuals Every Day This Ramadan

To Realize Our Vision, We Have Partnered With

Much like the previous years…Ek Plate Biryani will be setting up our annual food camp for the entire month of Ramadan!
The purpose will be to offer iftar and food to anyone and everyone – all creeds, castes, religions are welcome to have a meal.
We will be setting it up in a busy area, Gulshan-e-Iqbal, in Karachi.
There are slums close by
And the traffic is heavy.
Our team will offer Iftar to everyone on the streets.
It will be a camp for the entire month…
So people can be sure of where to go if they are suffering from food insecurity
Or just happened to be on the streets at the time of Iftar…

Our Previous Successful Food Camps

Last year we started out with serving Iftar to 200 people a day… But, the head count kept increasing each day
And, by the end we were serving iftar to 800 people a day!

This year, we are starting with iftar for 500 people every day in Ramadan
If we get enough support from you,
We hope to increase the daily count to 1000 fasting people a day…
InshaAllah!

Let’s get together and start a movement. So that no one goes hungry this Ramadan.

Thousands of people in Karachi live in slums.
They do not even have the basic necessities to live life. Yet many fast for Ramadan. 30 days straight.
And some are forced to fast without food –
Or break their fast with dry, stale Roti.
Food that does not provide adequate nutrition.
Some of them let go of fasting altogether because of the uncertainty of food.
As Muslims, should we not do something to help them out in their miserable days?
Is it not exactly what Ramadan teaches us…?

This Movement, in the light of Hadith

A Movement That Needs Your Support

Naturally, we cannot go door to door and ask if they have sufficient food.
There is, however, something we can do to ease this holy month for them
To help them fast with the certainty of food security
And to help them have enough physical strength and motivation to fast the next day.
We can join hands and provide food for the entire month of Ramadan.
We will be setting up a food camp in Gulshan-e-Iqbal, near Nipa Chowrangi, to distribute food at Iftar time every day for the entire month of Ramadan.
Your contribution to our movement will give it the momentum it needs
And we will be able to provide iftar to 500 people (or hopefully more) each day. InshaAllah.
1. “Whoever feeds a person breaking his fast will earn the same reward as him, without anything being lessened from the reward of the fasting person.” (Tirmidhi)
2. “Whoever feeds a fasting person will have his sins forgiven and will be saved from the hell-fire. He will earn the same reward as the one who has fasted without diminishing the latter’s reward in the slightest.” (Ibn Khuzaymah)
3. Once the Sahaaba said to the Prophet (S.A.W), “Not all of us find that with which to feed a fasting person.” The Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) replied, “God gives this reward to whoever breaks another’s fast, even if with a mouthful of milk, a date, or a sip of water.” (Ibn Khuzaymah)
4. “Let the fasting ones eat iftar with you. Let the good eat from your meal. And let the angels pray for you for forgiveness.” (Musnad)

Why Gulshan-e-Iqbal of all Places?

Karachi is a huge city with people from all socio-economic and ethnic backgrounds.
In this metropolis city, we wanted to choose an area that will allow us to maximize the impact of this project… without discriminating against anyone.
Gulshan-e-Iqbal, near NIPA Chowrangi, came up as the ideal location.
It is pretty much the center of the city… connecting various parts.
There are several slums nearby… where poverty is rampant.
Besides, it is a busy thoroughfare, with huge commercial and residential areas, where you will find people from all walks of life.
The traffic on this road at Iftar time often makes it impossible for people to reach their homes in time to break their fasts.
And, then, at that time the slum dwellers, too, roam around in search of food for Iftar.
Our goal is to provide food to everyone.
At this time, our team will be actively distributing food, water, and drinks to everyone who is on the streets to break their fasts.
The movement aims to not let anyone be hungry after their long, hot day of fasting.
We ensure that every penny is utilized to its best
(Note: If we are left with any funds from this campaign after Ramadan, we will use that for other causes all around the year.)

This Movement, in the light of Hadith:

The Prophet of Allah (S.A.W) teaches us to be kind to others. He stresses feeding the hungry… and puts even more weight on this command during the month of Ramadan.
Here are some of his (S.A.W) sayings on the subject:
1. “Whoever feeds a person breaking his fast will earn the same reward as him, without anything being lessened from the reward of the fasting person.”
(Tirmidhi)
2. The Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him, said, “Guard yourself from the Hellfire, even with half of a date in charity. If one cannot find it, then with a kind word.”
(Bukhari; Muslim)
3. “Let the fasting ones eat iftar with you. Let the good eat from your meal. And let the angels pray for you for forgiveness.”
(Musnad)

What is Ek Plate Biryani, you ask?

Ek Plate Biryani is the brainchild of a handful of us Canadian residents who wanted to give back to society.
We know so many in the world are suffering. And, we wanted to help them.
When we set out to donate, we didn’t know who to trust. Most of the organizations did not offer enough proof.
There, we decided to go the extra mile and create a platform where anyone from any part of the world can help the needy…
Hence, Ek Plate Biryani came into being.
Ek Plate Biryani is a registered Not-For-Profit Organization based in Canada and operating in Pakistan, Uganda, India, the Philippines, and Bangladesh.
Our team includes several trained, professional, and honest operation managers and quality control managers, along with several volunteers.
We aim to help people in every possible way. So far, we have the following projects under our belt:
  • Ek Plate Biryani distributes ration packages containing full month’s grocery door-to-door in underprivileged areas regularly.
  • We provide fresh, ready-to-eat meals for needy individuals. Over the last year, we have distributed food to 700,000 people.
  • Our team has installed 18 hand pumps in Cox’s Bazar, Bangladesh, for the Rohingya community.
  • In Thar, Pakistan, we have installed 194 hand pumps to cope with water shortages.
  • We help a street school in Karachi with healthy breakfast and lunches for students every day.
  • We have donated dialysis machines to SIUT, Pakistan’s best urology center.
All this was possible because of your help.
In our setup, every penny is accounted for. We ensure you receive the proof whenever you need them.
To ensure 100% transparency, we take pictures and videos of the projects for proof. They are shared on our website, Facebook, and Instagram, as needed.
The rest can be shared with you upon request.
You can check us out at:
We share pictures of our work on social media for those who want to have a look before donating to our causes.

This organization has been built for YOU. Where you can come
forward to improve the conditions of your fellow beings.

Let Us Try That Everyone In The City Has Iftar This Year

Our 30-Day Food Camp aims to provide iftar to as many people as possible…
And, it is not achievable without your support.
This is our chance to help the needy and help the fasting Muslims…
This is our chance to ease their burden.
Every penny would help the cause.
Let’s come together to make it a STRONG movement…
So that no one goes hungry in the city this Ramadan.
