We’re now well into the holy month of #Ramadan for all our Muslim families and supporters. 
 
Ramadan is a special time for Muslims around the world, with a focus on fasting, prayer, reflection and community. During Ramadan in 2020, one of our fabulous supporters, Shaukat Patel, set up a fundraising page to encourage his community to donate to Candlelighters, as part of the focus on charitable giving at this time, known as Zakat and Sadaqah. 
 
His generous friends and family raised over £600 during the month of Ramadan, which could fund one of our New Patient Grants – helping to cover mounting costs associated with a child’s diagnosis, such as travel to the hospital and reduced income if a parent stops working, whilst waiting for government disability allowance payments to be processed. 
 
We’re so grateful to Shaukat and his friends and family for supporting Candlelighters at such a special time. If you’d like to make your own donation to Candlelighters this Ramadan, you can do so here
