Transform the lives of children in need this Ramadan


Your support during Ramadan is a vital opportunity to help those who are in need or less fortunate.

Each year, through fasting and reflection, Ramadan helps you to feel closer to the Islamic faith, and reflect on how fortunate we are to have the love of our families, the company of our friends, and the blessing of good health.

When does Ramadan 2023 start?

As the Islamic calendar is based around the lunar cycle, the holy month of Ramadan rotates by approximately 10 days each year. Ramadan 2023 is expected to begin on 22 March 2023 and end on 21 April 2023, depending on the sighting of the moon.

When choosing how to help this Ramadan, and where to donate your zakat, sadaqah jariyah or sadaqah, please consider giving a donation to Sightsavers’ Ramadan appeal.

Sightsavers works in more than 30 countries worldwide, many with large Muslim populations, helping to prevent avoidable blindness and treat those at risk of losing their sight. Thanks to incredible supporters like you, we have been able to help children and families receive vital medicines and sight-saving operations that have transformed their future. We also work tirelessly to promote the rights of people with disabilities, working with local and national partners to promote inclusive, quality education, giving all children the chance to go to school.
