Bradford charity launches ‘What Dad Used To Do’

For immediate release

An international aid organisation is hoping to brighten the lives of orphaned refugees by distributing Eid gifts on Eid day.

Countless of orphaned children around the world who have completed the month of Ramadan have no parents to spend it with. These children do not feel the enjoyment of the occasion, the gifts or clothes that come with it, and nor do they feel the love of a close-knit family.

Human Relief Foundation (HRF), an international aid organisation based in Bradford, has launched its ‘What Dad Used To Do’ campaign, which will provide gifts to orphans most in need.

Dr Nabeel Al Ramadhani, President of HRF, said: “Our project to provide gifts for orphans is important in our vision at Human Relief Foundation. Many children suffer to the loss of their parent or parents, and we must not forget about them. Our ‘What Dad Used To Do’ campaign will ease their burdens this Eid, a time of happiness and joy.”

The campaign name, ‘What Dad Used To Do’, was inspired by a young orphan who was given a gift by Human Relief Foundation’s team in Jordan.

After receiving the gift he told them: “This is what dad used to do”.

Anyone who would like to donate towards an Eid gift can do so at www.justgiving.com/ whatdadusedtodo.
