Donation of crowdfunded food aid complete

To support Muslims in Japan struggling in the Covid-19 pandemic, we conducted a crowdfunding project on LaunchGood from October to November 2021.
We collected USD2,383 (about JPY280,000), and many thanks again to all those who supported it. THANK YOU.

With your generous donations, we have donated Halal food and feminine hygiene items to a total of 462 Muslim students and mosque-goers through these organisations.

“I enjoyed the Halal food from Salam Groovy Japan.
Thank you very much”, one of the comments we received.
We hope this could be of some help to them.

University of Electro-Communications

We received many comments from the students.
Here are some of them.

Student A
Fortunately, I have noticed that most Japanese possess a very helping nature for mankind regardless of race, gender, or religion. UEC shown keen interested in facilitating Muslim students in every aspect beyond to their limits. Recently the availability of halal food in the Main cafeteria is one example.
In the same context, J-LINE Co., Ltd distributes a halal food among Muslim students realizing the inconvenience of halal food. We are very thankful to J-LINE Co., Ltd for your care for Muslim students staying in Japan.

Student B
Meal was literally good and the act of distributing food in the time of crises among needy people is great deed of kindness (JazakAllah Khair). May you all be blessed with good health and happiness and grant you jannah in afterlife. Ameen

Kobe University

Some of the comments we received.
“I’m happy since halal ramen is rare.”
‘There are still very few halal food products in Japan, so I’m very grateful for this kind of occasion.”
It is true that halal products are still limited.
We are gradually seeing a move towards accommodating Halal needs among our business contacts, and hopefully it will help make a more comfortable environment for Muslims to live in.

University of Tsukuba

Thank you for the photos with the message cards.
May these reach to everyone who supported the crowdfunding project.

Akita University

Comments regarding the biryani and sanitary products:
Thank you very much for the donations.
The biryani was really delicious. I think it is easy to eat it when you are hungry. The spiciness is just right, so it was good. Thank you so much!
