Muslim Aid on Friday 2 December held an event at The Ivy in Manchester to re-establish its strong connections to the Greater Manchester area in the post-pandemic era.
Key leaders in Muslim Aid, such as CEO Kashif Shabir and the members of the Board of Trustees, hosted an intimate gathering of philanthropists and corporates from Greater Manchester.
They set out to showcase the work Muslim Aid has carried out over the last year, which includes carrying out long-term projects to support vulnerable communities across the world by empowering beneficiaries for generations to come.
They also presented Muslim Aid’s emergency responses to disasters such as earthquakes in Afghanistan and Indonesia, floods in Pakistan and conflicts that left civilians vulnerable in Palestine. ''This auspicious occasion brought together key Philanthropists in Greater Manchester who understood during these difficult times they have a responsibility to support Muslim Aid with not only their generous giving but their wealth of experience and knowledge so we can develop further as an organisation”, said Yusuf Kalam, Muslim Aid’s Philanthropy & Partnerships Manager.
The attendees were impressed by the work Muslim Aid has carried out and were keen to support the charity’s long-term sustainability through the unrestricted Give To Everything campaign which allows our activities and projects get the funding they need.
“We thank all the attendees for their continued support and key insights”, Yusuf added.
The lively community of Manchester was once a hotspot for Muslim Aid volunteers which continues to support our charity and the amazing projects it carries out in the name of saving humanity.
Our volunteers have over the years taken part in a range of activities, such as project management, campaigning and working with high-profile figures to successfully deliver fundraising events. Muslim Aid has saved millions of lives – donate to us now and get in touch to volunteer with us.
