Free meals for migrants and the homeless: Watch how this NGO celebrates Ramzan

In Algiers, the capital city of Algeria, an NGO called Djazair al Kheir, is working hard for African migrants and the homeless to help them celebrate the fasting month of Ramzan. Volunteers at this NGO have been the busiest during Ramzan, cooking at least a thousand free meals for the poor.

Dawud, cook and volunteer speaks to AFP and says, "This year, we’re preparing 600 meals a day. 300 of them will be sent to the restaurant serving African migrants and 100 meals will go the the NGO’s three other restaurants in Algiers. Those coming from African countries will get a special menu."

In order to function, the NGO relies on its volunteers. Last year, it saw an inflow of nearly 4000 volunteers. The work of some of these volunteers during this month entails going out at night to hand out food and water to the homeless so that they can have their Suhur, a pre-dawn meal which is eaten before fasting begins.
