We can’t confuse all Muslims with some meaningless terrorists.
We have a fantastic news in London where the Muslim Aid and the East London Mosque in Whitechapel have organized a charity drive to collect food donations.
Eventually, the drive collected 10 tonnes that will be distributed for Christmas to homeless charity Crisis (90% are non-Muslims).
From the Charity
Jehangir Malik, Chief Executive of Muslim Aid, commented
“With austerity cuts and the housing crisis, more and more people are ending up on the streets – destitute.
We, as a Muslim charity, want to do everything we can to help the most vulnerable people in this country this Christmas, regardless of faith or background.
“Helping those in need is one of the five pillars of Islam and as temperatures plummet we need to do everything we can to protect those most at risk.”
From Crisis at Christmas
Ian Richards, Head of Crisis at Christmas commented
“Every year, Crisis opens its doors to thousands of homeless people, offering a safe, warm welcome with food and companionship, as well as access to vital services and year-round opportunities.
one of this would be possible without the generosity of our donors, and we’d like to thank Muslim Aid and the East London Mosque for their kind support. This food will help us provide a lifeline for homeless people this Christmas and bring them one step closer to escaping homelessness for good.”
