Indonesian Communities’ Ramadan Charities, Volunteering and Meet Ups
Ramadan month is a special month during the year for muslims all around the world. Not only a month of fasting, but also a perfect month to increase of doing good deeds and charity. Some of Indonesian Smule Groups managed to gather donations during the month to share their happiness with those who less fortunate. They gave the money or bought some food or other needs to orphans and elderly people, also provided meals for “iftar” (meals for breaking the fast) and for “suhoor” (pre-dawn meals before fasting) to those who are in needs. Ramadan is also a perfect month to regroup with families and old friends, usually called “mempererat tali silaturahmi” (tighten the relationship). Therefore, there were tons of meetups happening in the community: breaking the fast or having suhoor together.
