Muslim Engagement and Development (MEND) is supporting Glasgow Muslim Aid to deliver 200 iftar meals everyday during the month of Ramadan to all who are vulnerable, regardless of faith.
• Hot meal collection is available every evening at Masjid Ibrahim on Paisley Road West Glasgow.
• Many who are accessing the service are asylum seekers, homeless individuals, and those on very low incomes.
• MEND is supporting the initiative by fundraising and providing volunteers to deliver food parcels to those who are unable to travel to collect the food themselves.
• Many vulnerable people who are self-isolating or stuck in remote areas with little or no access to public transport must rely on the support of others to provide everyday essentials. MEND hopes that our support can ensure that all those who need it can receive a much-needed hot meal.
• The work of Glasgow Muslim Aid and other Muslim-run charities is vital during this time and MEND will continue to support efforts such as this by charities and non-profits across the country.
Jawad Khursheed, Chair of MEND Scotland, says:
“In these unique and difficult times, it is so important that all communities pull together to support one and other. This is why MEND is behind initiatives such as Glasgow Muslim Aid who assist all who are in need of support, a hot meal and a friendly face.”
