Ramadan Relief Campaign

The UMO-OG’s COVID-19 Relief Efforts have been going strong since the start of the pandemic. To date, we have provided relief to over ten thousand individuals and families across Ottawa-Gatineau regardless of faith.

We have supported over 12,000 individuals through our relief efforts, with thousands served in Ramadan alone. Donate to help alleviate food insecurity in your city and feed those less-fortunate this Ramadan.

“We feed you only for the sake of Allah, seeking neither reward nor thanks from you"
[76:9]

About Us

The UMO-OG COVID-19 Relief effort is an initiative by all 13 mosques in the Ottawa-Gatineau area to provide relief services to the most vulnerable of the community. With the help of Allah SWT we have served thousands already through different initiatives from all faith and backgrounds. Learn more about us here

With our Ramadan relief program, anyone can assist in sharing the blessings of the holy month with families and individuals in need. As one of the five pillars of Islam, Muslims fast from sunrise to sunset, while showing compassion for those less fortunate through charitable works.

If you or someone you know is in need of support during these unprecedented times, we welcome you to fill out our form or call us at 613-686-6320.

What are we doing? 

Spirituality Kits: There is a shortage of prayer mats and Qur’an for Muslim inmates. Pandemic regulations no longer allow for sharing so we’re working with local prisons to provide these essential items. *Note: Our fundraising goal has been reached and we are no longer collecting for this campaign.

Individual & Family Care Packages: An estimated 1 in 7 (13.9%) Ottawa households are food insecure. The Ottawa Food Bank distribution increased by 34% in the past year. We have been playing our part with our food relief program that has served over 12,000 individuals to date.

Eid Gift Package: We’re supporting the most vulnerable in our Muslim community with an Eid gift package to share the blessings.
