Thank you so much for your above quick reply.
I live in Los Angeles and the fitra declared is $12.
I want to distribute this amount in India.
How is fitra best distributed.. in giving away groceries, or cash and only to shia syed or non -syeds, please let me know

Fitra must be foodstuffs given to the poor, or the money can be given to any reliable organisation or individual who will ensure that food is bought and given to them.

Fitra from Sadaat can be given to anyone, but Fitra from non Sadaat must not be given to Sadaat.
