On the morning of July 11th, Mutaz with his mother and alongside his neighbors and friends began preparing homemade cooked meals to feed as many as 500 of the poor and orphans in an impoverished neighborhood during Iftar time that day. Their combined efforts have totaled in 55 kilograms of cooked rice and 500 pieces of roasted chicken. The cooked meals were packaged at Sammour's house, then loaded in the vehicles of his family and friends and transported to arrive at Al-Hashmi right before the sunset prayer. Each meal includes dates, roasted chicken, steamed rice, plain yogurt, water, juice, and a candy bar. Sammour had previously arranged to set up a tent, chairs and tables to accommodate the neighborhood's population.
According to Sammour, his campaign had gained a remarkable turnout thus far; he states, "many young men and women across the Kingdom had contacted me to request expanding my campaign to their neighborhoods and villages". He also adds, "Through 'Blessings from Good People to Good People' we are extending our parameters to Al-Karak later on this week, and will return to Al-Hashmi with yet another Iftar mission on Monday, July 14th".
Many of the young men who have joined Mutaz to help with his campaign had expressed that their heartfelt joy cannot be described by mere words, especially when they see they're able to draw smiles on children's faces, and be blessed by the elderly. They are forever grateful to Mutaz to have given them an opportunity to help those in need, and will remain by his side to continue the Iftar campaign throughout The Holy Month of Ramadan.
