Since the start of the refugee crisis in Europe, Muslim Aid Sweden (MAS) has been at the forefront of emergency relief for people in desperate need of food, water and shelter. MAS has been helping hundreds of refugees coming from a number of countries such as Eritrea, Syria, Sudan, Iraq and Afghanistan. Most recently, MAS partnered with Refugees Welcome Stockholm, a voluntary run organization that have set up a camp for refugees and providing them with medicine, food and shelter. MAS provided two hot meals per day for three days for 400 refugees. They also gave 50 inflatable mattresses for refugees living at the camp organised by Refugees Welcome Stockholm .
Further partnerships with Sweden’s well known charity for the homeless – Stockholms Stadsmission, means MAS will be providing hot dinners for refugees untill the end of this year for up to 90 people, including women and children.
MAS in partnership with Stockholms Stadsmission, is also offering an interpretation service for refugees at railway stations and at the refugee location who need guidance and are unable to communicate in Swedish. A number of volunteers are at hand at the railways stations where all refugees arrive and then sent to different shelters. MA is currently offering translators in Arabic, Farsi and Kurdish to help assist people with information.
Further plans are underway for MA to co-fund for the provision of a mini-bus in order to transport refugees from the station to the camps and health clinics.
On average MA has been reaching up 250 refugees daily with assistance. MA Sweden has started an emergency campaign for refugee crisis. If you would like to show your support, please donate now.
