Muslim Charity Helps People Survive Lockdown in South London

0 9

Struggling during the country’s third lockdown, families in Croydon, South London, have been receiving support from local Muslim charity Al Khair Foundation.

FEED THE POOR

Feeding the poor and needy is an act that draws us closer to Allah. We earn His forgiveness, mercies and blessings through this act of charity.

“Anyone who looks after and works for a widow and a poor person is like a warrior fighting for Allah?s cause, or like a person who fasts during the day and prays all night. (Bukhari)

The Muslim charity has supported hundreds of local people by delivering food packs and ingredients to prepare hot meals for those unable to stay afloat during the coronavirus pandemic.

Volunteers with the charity also donated more than 500 food packs, grocery items and ingredients to mosques, churches, support groups and individuals across South London.

“During these difficult times we will continue to do all we can to support our local community the way we have been. We are getting increasing numbers of calls for help across the borough as the lockdown bites,” Al Khair’s head of special projects, Imran Nisar, told London News Online.

“Many people are becoming vulnerable to homelessness as they are now losing their jobs – even feeding their families is a struggle. We will work tirelessly to continue the work we have been doing by providing food and other essentials to all who need it.

“We are most grateful for all food donations we are receiving which makes it possible for us to deliver to people in need in these unprecedented times.”
