In the run up to the month of Ramadan, Muslim Aid toured the UK across 3 cities with Mufti Menk in partnership with Emaan Channel. Mufti Menk, a world renowned Islamic scholar and motivational speaker, visited London, Birmingham and Manchester and spoke to crowds of approximately 1000 in each city about ways in which to prepare for the Holy month of Ramadan.
An event of this kind on this scale was a first, and attracted a wide audience, young and old. Funds raised during the tour will go towards providing clean water to impoverished people in the Gaza Strip where 97% of the water is undrinkable.
Muslim Aid will be holding a number of events throughout the country during the month of Ramadan, raising funds for vital life saving projects including maternal and child healthcare, water and sanitation, livelihood programmes and feed the fasting projects.
