Try fasting with the QBE MIX network this Ramadan!

Event dates: 17th March 2023 – 24th April 2023

QBE Mix and EO Foundation are raising money for British Red Cross and Save the Children

Our story

This year the MIX network is encouraging our employees to take part in fasting during the month of Ramadan, to become more aware of how Muslims observe Ramadan, learn how to be more respectful and to be part of the celebration.

There are plenty of ways to get involved including:

Abstaining from food or drink, even if it’s just for a day, work shift, or afternoon.
Working on removing bad thoughts from your mind.
Kicking bad habits.
Self-reflection.
Abstaining from backbiting.
Making a conscious effort to donate to charity.

If you would like to partake, please contact Afsana Goffar (afsana.goffar@uk.qbe.com) who will add you to the Ramadan group chat. Here you will be provided support from other people fasting, ask any questions you may have, and connect with people across the company. 

Ramadan is a time of giving, so the MIX network is raising money for QBE's Global Disaster Relief and Resilience (DRR) partners; Red Cross and Save the Children. All donations will be matched by the QBE Foundation. We are encouraging all participants to embrace the whole experience of Ramadan and donate (this could even be the money you would have spent on your lunch that day). If you would like to donate, even if you are not fasting, please click on the donate 'button now' at the top of the page to donate to to our DRR partners.

Colleagues who are pregnant, breastfeeding/chestfeeding or menstruating should not be fasting. Also, anyone who has a disability, either physical or mental, that will prevent them from fasting should not participate.

Finally, please look after your health first and foremost. This experience is optional and primarily encouraging our colleagues to be more respectful around Ramadan, so manage your fasting experience accordingly and drink and eat if you need to.


Thank you for checking out our page. Making a donation is fast, easy and secure thanks to Give as you Live Donate. They'll take your donation and pass it onto British Red Cross and Save the Children.
