Three sisters raised an amazing £2283 to help refugees by selling Eid sweets during Ramadan.

Aleeza (13), Mariam (10) and Laiba (7) wanted to assist others around the world this Ramadan and set up their own project by offering Charity Eid Sweets in exchange for Hot Iftar Meals. 

The girls focused on selling just one product, a 1kg Mega Mix Bag of 'Halal Pick n Mix' which could then fund One Hot Iftar Meal in return. 

The meal contained dates, ayran, lentil soup, meat and rice. The siblings originally had planned to offer local delivery in Greater Manchester however soon enough interest was generated from around the UK. 

Aleeza said "We had to setup a website and this made the whole ordering and delivery process much easier for us, we wanted to offer a professional service and in the end we even had text messages confirming delivery slots". 

They had set a target of £1,000 to provide 333 hot meals.

The final figure was £2283 and this provided 761 Meals. This meals were delivered by International Aid Charity UK (registered no - 1192578).

Mariam said: 'We worked together as a team on the project, we went with our mum to buy the sweets and then had to sort them into our mix and bag them up'

Laiba said: "My favourite part was delivering the sweets and saying thank you to all the kind people who helped us to provide the meals. Our little brother wanted to help too and it was hard to keep him away from the sweets".

Proud dad Abdul Mateen, added:  'The girls took to creating Sweet Fairy very well. It's a fabulous way for youngsters to focus their time, energy and to build their confidence.

"It was a steep learning curve for them from selecting the ideal combination of sweets, packaging, weighing and working as a team to determine one another's strengths in the varying roles they had to participate in to make it a success. 

"As a father, I'm proud of their achievements and pray for their success and hope that they excel in their new venture.
