Projects

Learn more about our aid projects below.

food

Project: We distributed bread to poor families during Ramadan (the blessed month) in Muslim calendar. This year many needy families in Afghanistan faced hunger as a result of COVID-19, and through funds raised in Canada, our charity was able to help some poor people.

eid project 2020

Project: During the 2020 Eid, we distributed Qurbani meat (the festival of sacrifice) and through Islamic practices to poor families. Eid is a time of giving back to the poor people and visiting close friends and family.


plants

Project: ORDA supported 200 returning refugee families with fruit trees which were distributed in the poorest locations. The recipients were also provided with tool kits for rebuilding of their homes. The fruits also helped with their nutrition needs.

animals

Project: ORDA's poultry training and distribution project allowed the beneficiaries to learn how to take care of their chickens through one-week training. They learned skills in egg marketing, feeding and watering chickens.


How we do it

Our aid programs are either carried out by ourselves or we fund other aid groups who are already active in the area where the aid is needed. We are also open to collaborative efforts with other aid organizations for long term aid projects.
