Photo by Amy Bergquist. "I'm not Muslim, but zakah and sadaqah (charitable giving) is one of my favorite parts of Ramadan. I've attached a photo of the charitable donation box at the Dungan Mosque in Karakol, Kyrgyzstan, which we visited last month. In cyrillic, it reads 'sadaka' and then underneath in Russian 'charity.' It's also a reminder that Muslims are celebrating Ramadan in nearly every corner of the world!"
