Can we feed non-Muslims when offering fidyah for not fasting?

Dear Brothers & Sisters,
As-Salaamu-Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:
There is a sick person who has to feed poor people (because he cannot fast). Is it permissible for him to give this food to non-Mulsims because he is living in a non-Muslim country?.
(There may be some grammatical and spelling errors in the above statement. The forum does not change anything from questions, comments and statements received from our readers for circulation in confidentiality.)

Praise be to Allaah.

If the person is in a non-Muslim country and he is obliged to feed poor people, then if there are any Muslim people in that country who are entitled to be given food, he should feed them. Otherwise he may send it to any Muslim country where the people are in need of this food. And Allaah knows best. End quote. 

Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah's Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
