The Muslim Welfare Canada (MWC) is a registered Canadian charity serving the needy regardless of race, religion or ethnicity since 1993, promoting the need to support their neighbours. MWC offers various programs including food banks, school nutrition programs, and emergency shelters.
Project Ramadan is hosted by the Muslim Welfare Centre on Parliament Hill to build food baskets for those in need within the Ottawa community. MP Omar Alghabra sponsors the event and is supported by Senator Salma Ataullahjan. This event is part of the Feed Canada initiative that is intended to help raise awareness about food insecurity in Canada. Project Ramadan encourages parliamentarians to build baskets, build bridges and fight hunger across Canada.
During COVID-19, the MWC has donated over $50,000 in personal protective equipment (PPE) to hospitals, senior living and long-term care homes in the GTA, including the Scarborough Health Network. This donation includes surgical masks, N-95 masks, isolation gowns, face shields and hand sanitizers.
MWC has also contributed through the COVID-19 Emergency Food Fund and various other initiatives. Since mid-March, MWC has served over 6,000 take-out meals at Regent Park and Malvern in Scarborough, delivered close to 9,000 meals to seniors, distributed 5,000+ food hampers to families across the GTA.
