How should one discharge fidyah?

Q:

  1. When you donate money to charity organisation they have box for Zakat, Lillah and Sadaqah,which box should one put the Fidya money(money for fast missed in the month of ramadhan due to long term sickness) and Kaffarah money?
  2. Is it permissible to give Fidya money (money for fast missed in the month of ramadhan due to long term sickness) to a poor person but not very poor because he can not take zakat money?

A:

1. He should give them separately and make it known to them that it is fidyah, as the laws of fidyah vary from general sadaqah.

2. No.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
