The success of our Meals for the Homeless project has continually drawn in new partners. Since the beginning of March the local mosque opposite our centre have begun a programme of supplying groceries for our foodbank visitors once a month. Their donations have been heling us improve the lives of families with local children and we hoe to continue this and other positive partnerships throughout the course of our operation.
Sheikh Khalid, the Imam for the mosque, said:
“I am grateful for the opportunity to work with British Asian Christian Association.
“There work is very positive and has been changing the lives of many local people.
“Our mosque worshippers have seen the great work of this group first hand and we wanted to join them in solidarity for the community.
“It is a duty on us all to help get those in our community through the difficulties caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.”
