‘This will, of course, be a very different Ramadan. Many community activities will naturally be affected by measures to combat the COVID-19 pandemic. Meanwhile, many people is conflict zones will once again be tragically marking this month with war and insecurity all around’, said Guterres in a message of congratulations on the occasion of Ramadan 2020.

Ramadan, he added, is also about supporting the most vulnerable. ‘I thank governments and people throughout the Muslim world who live by their faith, supporting those fleeing conflict in the best Islamic tradition of hospitality and generosity a remarkable lesson in this world where so many doors have been closed to those in need of protection, even before COVID-19.
