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)

Backed by the Afghanistan and Central Asian Association in Feltham and Comic Relief, Abresham FC opened its doors two months ago. Now, it has over 50 registered participants aged between 8 to 16.
