They were then able to break their fast at Ibrahimi Restaurant, with the restaurant generously slashing the bill as a reward for their efforts.

A delighted Atiq Rehman, one of the charity’s co-founders, said: “I’d like to say ‘thank you’ from the whole team at Children of Adam to everyone who fasted and supported our charity.”

He added: “The money raised will go to help orphans around the world.”
