Food Parcel Mayor

Invitation From The Mayor!

Two Trustees of Al Miftah, Mohsin Ashraf and Abu Eesa, were invited to meet with the Mayor of Slough on the afternoon of the 23rd September 2020.

The Mayor of Slough passed over his thanks for the ongoing support and expressed his joy at the exemplary manner in which the Slough community banded together during times of crisis to help those in need.

Al Miftah would like to thank each and every individual who invested their time, donated money and supplies and encouraged our selflees volunteers to distribute over 2000 food parcels to date!

The Food Parcel Support campaign was initially setup in March 2020, one week before the first nationwide Coronovirus lockdown. At the time, we were all unsure as to how this virus would affect us, our families, our livelihoods and our communities.

A wonderful group of selfless volunteers assembled and have gone above and beyond anyone’s expectations. With your help, we have been able to supply 2000+ food parcels to Slough’s most vulnerable families, at a time of tremendous uncertainty.

As a charity, we are very fortunate to have such selfless volunteers who not only gave up their time but ventured out into the community to help, at the peak of the virus, at great personal risk.

This pandemic has taught us many things, amongst them, that many of our neighbours are on the brink of poverty and struggle to feed their family week to week. Our elderly friends and family don’t always have the necessary support around them for them to feel like they’re cared for and not a burden. As an Islamic charity, we think its of utmost importance that our own community is supported in every way and no one goes without – irrespective of faith and personal beliefs. We have therefore decided to now move this project away from a specialist COVID-19 support group and intend to offer general support to the community at large. It is so important that we can have this impact in our community, if we are in a position to be able to do so.
