Pakistan Floods Appeal August 2022
Afghanistan Earthquake Appeal & Bangladesh Floods Appeal - June 2022
A 6.1 magnitude earthquake recently hit eastern Afghanistan, leaving at least 1000 people dead, 2,000 injured and 10,000 homes destroyed.
Many people were asleep when the earthquake struck. Other critical infrastructure, such as roads and power supplies, have also been severely damaged. In an area already struggling with support, this is turning into desperate humanitarian crisis.
We are delighted to have helped raised £3725 for Afghanistan
Heavy monsoon rains have led to bursting river banks and causing widespread flooding in parts of Bangladesh. Over 70% of the Sylhet region is under water, with around 2 million people affected. Homes have been destroyed, cattle & livestock washed away and many lives lost. Rising waters have flooded schools as well as caused catastrophic disruptions to vital infrastructure such as power supply, roads, bridges and water sources. Thousands of families are stranded and running out of food.
We are delighted to have helped raised £2795 for Bangladesh

The Gaza Strip has been suffering from a chronic deficit in electricity since 2006. Around 2 million people are living on less than 8 hours of electricity a day as a result of the 61% electricity deficit. Several alternatives, including the use of generators, were initiated to overcome electricity shortages, particularly in hospitals and schools.
The Gaza Strip has an average of 320 days of sunshine a year, making renewable energy an ideal option. In addressing the needs of the energy sector in Gaza.
In partnership with UWT intend to provide a sustainable energy source through the installation of solar panels in one of these two Islamic schools in Gaza.
Al Tabeen and Fatima Al-Zahraa Islamic Schools are two of the 398 schools in the Gaza Strip currently affected by the electricity crisis. Since 2006, Gaza has been facing chronic electrical shortages, exacerbated by the most recent crisis in Gaza, which damaged related infrastructure and Gaza’s sole power plant.

Malawi Mosque Ramadan 2018
RAMADAN PROJECT 2018 – Completed!
Masjid Hidayah, Nampway, Zomba District – Donated by Community Members of Islamic Centre Edgware
In Ramadan 1439 (2018), Islamic Centre Edgware decided to adopt a charitable project during Ramadan for our community. After discussions with various organisations, it was agreed that we would establish the building of a masjid in Malawi for which our community can gain sadaqa jaariya. Ummah Welfare Trust, who have considerable experience in this field submitted a report for a Mosque in Nsulu Village, Ulongwe Area. It was a deprived area with a poor structure and no nearby water well. Funds of approximately £20,000 was needed.
Collections of Funds and project allocation
During Ramadan, we focused on this issue and were honoured to have raised all of the required funds. However, by the time we had collected all of the funds and arranged the transfer to Ummah Welfare Trust, the initial project in Nsulu village had been taken up and completed by another charitable organisation. Undeterred, we requested another location in Malawi as this was the premise upon which the funds had been collected. UWT identified another area in Nampway, Zomba District.
Update: May 2018 / Ramadan 1440H – Project Completed
Alhumdulillah, by the mercy and Grace of Allah, the Malawi Masjid Project is now complete. Our community has established a place of worship for our beloved brothers and sisters in Malawi. Please look through the pictures below.
