On the first day of Ramadan, many young people in Damascus started a volunteer initiative to feed the poor people in the city, victims of the internal war.

In one day 750 meals were cooked and distributed. A restaurant owner gave his kitchen and utilities for the volunteers to cook in. He changed the name of the restaurant, using the name the volunteers choose for their initiative: NO HUNGER. Many merchants also joined in, giving food ingredients for free. This volunteer initiative is now working every day of the Ramadan to ensure the poor and victimized people in Damascus have a meal.
