Dear Brother / Sister,
Sadaqah can be given to non-Muslims. The charity you have mentioned is regarded as sadaqah.
However, it is more appropriate for that kind of charity to be done by the organizations of Muslims.
Thus, it will cause the hearts of the non-Muslims who will receive the help to be reconciled with Islam.
