Algeria: Youth Association demonstrates muslim love


A youth Association “Djazair Al Kheir” in Algiers is providing free food to people as Muslims observe the Ramadan fast.

With charity being a strong recommendation of the Koran, cooks at the “Djazair Al Kheir” Association have been sharing a variety of dishes with the homeless, migrants and refugees

“This year we are preparing 600 meals per day, 300 dishes are reserved for African Migrants, 100 for the
3 restaurants of the Association in Algiers. For instance those from Africa have the right to a special menu, “Daoud, a volunteer cook with the “Djazair El Kheir” Association said.

Long queues in front of the Association’s restaurant has become a norm this year, just as in previous years.

The youth Association has about 200 outlets across Algeria catering to the needy who live close to their establishments.

“I encourage this. It is a very good thing. We prefer eating here rather than paying for meals It is like our home which we really appreciate,” a Guinean migrant said.

Members of the Association regularly distribute fruits, water and meals to those in the hinterlands who cannot make it to the restaurant.

“The aim of our work is to see the smile on the faces of the downtrodden and those who face difficulties in feeding their families,” Mahmoud Rabi, president of the Association said.

The various social restaurants run by the group depend on donations from benefactors and companies.
