In just a few weeks’ time a member of our local Stanmore Jamaat, who also happens to be the father of one of our team members, will begin a journey of a lifetime to help our community.
Jamal and his 13 year old son sell vegetables on a roadside in Iraq. His family has been internally displaced twice. “I lost my business, my home and my health. My family’s needs are beyond my ability to cope,” says Jamal. He cannot remember the last time his family ate a decent meal.
You are the only lifeline for people like Jamal. Through our Ramadan Relief Fund, Jamal's family will receive a food parcel to give them dignity and comfort during this Holy month.
Thousands of families like Jamal’s depend on us, and we depend on you. Touch someone’s life today.

Will you help?
This year several individuals, couples and families will be embarking on the spiritual journey of walking from Najaf to Karbala to commemorate Arba’een. These people from different parts of the world will unite to complete an 80km walk through war-torn Iraq from the holy city of Najaf to the land of Karbala. They shall walk for three days during the daytime with the scorching desert sun bearing down upon them and they will rest in the evenings in makeshift tents, when the blistering cold takes over as temperatures rapidly plummet.
