Our Crisis Response in the UK and Worldwide

The Prophet (saw) said, 'Give charity without delay, for it stands in the way of calamity'. (Tirmidhi)

Since March 2020, we have been striving to lighten the burden of those most impacted by the ongoing coronavirus crisis.

In the UK, food poverty has hit new heights, after the coronavirus pandemic caused thousands of of people to lose their jobs or significant income.

We launched Mighty Meals in partnership with FareShare (the UK’s longest-running food redistribution charity), to provide 4,000 meals every day across the UK. Alhamdulillah, your donations have helped us provide almost one million meals so far!

We're also providing cooked meals from The Open Kitchen in Hounslow, delivering them to the elderly, disabled, and low-income families, as well as running a takeaway service for homeless people.

Moreover, we've mobilised our global teams in 19 countries to help vulnerable families worldwide. With your help, we're distributing food parcels and providing PPE to global front line officials, ensuring struggling families are protected from hunger, malnutrition and the spread of illness.

Give now to provide the most vulnerable with food and other essentials during the ongoing pandemic.

How You've Helped

Here's what's been done so far:

4,000 meals per day being provided to the needy in the UK through our partnership with FareShare

The Open Kitchen

Despite London being one of the richest cities in the world, there are thousands that experience food poverty on a daily basis, ranging from homeless people to low-income families.

Since 2018, Muslim Hands has been running a community kitchen for the homeless, low-income families and needy children in Hounslow. The kitchen is free and open to all, serving 100 hot, nutritious meals twice a day, seven days a week.

Due to the Coronavirus crisis and the latest Government guidelines, we are keeping the kitchen open for less time and running a takeaway service and home deliveries instead of serving on-site. We are also aiming to increase the number of vulnerable people we are reaching with this essential service.

Your donations will ensure those most in need have enough to eat during this hardship. Your support is a lifeline.


Feeding Vulnerable UK Families with FareShare

We've partnered up with FareShare (the UK’s longest running food redistribution charity) to provide 4,000 meals every day across the UK during the Coronavirus pandemic. This food will ensure the most vulnerable people don't go hungry during the crisis.

Prior to the pandemic, 1 in 5 people in the UK struggled to put food on the table. Now, many are unable to work due to lockdown or infection. They have lost their jobs or are facing financial difficulty, putting lives at serious risk.
