We prepare to bid Ramadhan of 1435 farewell for another twelve months.

Make someone happy, for no matter the problems the individual faces, the knowledge that someone cares lifts the burden.
Allow someone to make one happy, for beneficial interactions are a necessity.
There are many good persons in our neighbourhood who struggle to cater for self and family.
There are several dignified women bringing up children alone on a meagre wage.
