Our Special Guests

Yasrab Shah

Brother Yasrab has been working at Muslim Hands for over a decade masha’Allah. He is responsible for managing the Special Programmes team who deliver bespoke charitable projects on behalf of our donors, ranging from constructing ground water wells to building classrooms, right through to renovating wudhu facilities at the Blessed Masjid Al-Aqsa. He is also a qualified Arabic teacher and currently studies Islamic sciences on weekends.

Islam Uddin

Islam is the Fundraising and Communications Manager at Muslim Hands. Having started his charitable activities while still at school, Islam has many years’ experience of working with charities of different sizes and at various levels, from volunteer to trustee.

Islam has just come back from a field visit to Bangladesh where he has seen for himself the condition of the Rohingya refugees, and the work Muslim Hands is doing to help them. Islam will share some of his observations and experiences with us.


Save Rohingya Refugees

It’s been estimated by the UN that since 25th August, over 412,000 Rohingya refugees have crossed over into Bangladesh as their villages – and with it their homes and livelihoods – have been burnt, with 400,00 more men, women and children left displaced inside Myanmar itself.

With ongoing unrest in the region for many years, a total of one million Rohingya refugees have fled Myanmar to escape persecution and now a staggering 250,000 people in the area have now also been left without regular access to food.

At Muslim Hands, we’ve been supporting families in Myanmar since 2008, providing essential aid, including Ramadan and Qurbani aid, and also building shelter homes for displaced men, women and children.

As thousands of families find themselves in crisis, we’re now calling on you to help support our work and help provide essential aid for Rohingya refugees in desperate need.
