Al-Ihsan Foundation accepts Fedyah and Kaffarah.
Fedyah is a compensation payment for people who are unable to fast during Ramadan and cannot make up those days by fasting the missed days outside of Ramadan.
Reasons for not fasting Ramadan are:
- Old age
How is Fedyah paid?
Fedyah is paid by feeding one poor person for every day that was not fasted during Ramadan. The estimated cost of feeding one person is $12. Therefore, if someone missed 20 days of Ramadan (and is unable to make up those days due to sickness), then that person would need to pay:
$12 x 20 = $240
