Youth deliver on the blessings.

Maryland Youth Bring Meals to the Needy Everyday in Ramadan.

The newly formed Muslim Youth of Maryland got together earlier this year and decided they wanted their first service project to be big.

They decided to spend an already packed Ramadan sharing iftar with underprivileged Muslims in and around Baltimore City. But this wouldn't be a one time service it would last the entire month, every iftar.

With three Muslim women shelters in Baltimore City and four masajid including Masjid Saffat, Haqq, Tauhid as well as the North Charles Street musalla all received hot iftar dinners from the college-age activists from MYMD.

A reporter from the Muslim Link accompanied them on one of their delivery runs and documented the experience for our readers.

2. Such a shame

'They decided to spend an already packed Ramadan sharing iftar with underprivileged Muslims in and around Baltimore City. But this wouldn't be a one time service it would last the entire month, every iftar. . .

They have been delivering iftar everyday to shelters and inner city masajid for their Ramadan campaign. . .

MYMD had hosted fundraiser a few weeks earlier and raised $30,000 to deliver iftar to shelters and masajid in Baltimore and Baltimore City. . .

We want to make this into a hostel for new Muslims, where they can have a place to eat, sleep and learn, . . .

A soup kitchen is in the works as is a reentry program for ex-prisoners in this kitchen. A library and Islamic Museum is also planned for this huge, historic building.'
