About Gele Galore

“We are a team of sisters who established Gele Galore after the passing of a really close friend as a means of sadaqa jariyah for her. Her passing at such a tender age was a sharp reminder that we had to use the time and means that we had been blessed with to strive to build our Akhirah and pursue all within the dunyah that would connect us with our Lord and benefit the Muslim ummah.

So we hold galas for sisters so we can both give back as well as enjoy ourselves.”

Supporting Mothers Across the World

Motherkind is our maternal health campaign which aims to support new and expectant mothers in some of the most high-risk countries

There are many factors which contribute to maternal deaths, from social and cultural barriers to a lack of equipment or skills. As well as providing practical support, we’re also educating people in how to provide long-term care for women in their communities.

Our work has included facilitating training for midwives in Niger, running educational workshops in villages throughout India, and establishing specialised maternal health clinics in Afghanistan and Somalia.

Our Afghanistan clinic alone has assisted over 28,000 women. Building on this success and the achievements of our three clinics in Somalia, our goal is to establish a network of clinics throughout high risk areas like Afghanistan, as well as continuing with the good work we have carried out in other developing countries.

Our achievements so far have only been possible because of your generous support. This is why we ask you to continue being Motherkind.
