With your support we want to provide specialised psycho-social support delivered through sporting activities. Muslim Hands have teamed up with The Change Foundation (http://www.thechangefoundation.org.uk/) who specialise in creating tailor made sporting support activities for children in difficult situations.
Too many of these children have witnessed unimaginable horrors and unprecedented levels of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and depression and need immediate psycho-social care.
Organise a sporting activity of your choice, get your friends, family members, work mates and neighbours involved and help us provide care to vulnerable children. Together, we can make a difference!
Established in 1993, Muslim Hands is an aid agency and NGO helping those affected by poverty, conflict and natural disaster in over 20 countries worldwide.
