Supporting Mothers and Their Families Affected by War

Syria

With the Syria crisis escalating – millions of people are displaced and in desperate need of life saving aid.

We need your help to provide emergency relief packages to Syrian families. Each parcel will contain enough food items and water to last for a month. The package includes much needed medical supplies, clothes, blankets and hygiene items.

Rohingya

Over 900,000 Rohingya refugees are living in squalid, unhygienic conditions in the largest refugee camp in the world. Most are women and children who are particularly vulnerable to disease and illness.

Afghanistan and Somalia

Motherkind is our maternal health campaign which aims to support new and expectant mothers in some of the most high-risk countries. Around 343,000 women die each year from pregnancy and childbirth related complications.

Our work combats this by facilitating training for midwives, running educational workshops and establishing specialised maternal health clinics.

Q. Who can take part in Unite for Mothers of War 5km Night Walk?

A. The Unite for Mothers Night Walk is open to anyone who is up for challenge. Please note, that children under 16 must be accompanied by an adult.
Bring your friends and family along with you as this event is all about bringing family, friends and communities together to help raise awareness and make a difference to expectant mothers around the world.

Q. How much do I need to raise?

A. Each participant must raise a minimum of £150. However, we are hoping that our enthusiastic and dedicated supporters will aim to surpass this and raise as much as they can for our other campaign items.

Q. Can I donate Sadaqah and Zakat donations?

A. Yes, we accept both Zakat and Sadaqah donations. Please make sure you let us know if you are donating your Zakat.

Q. What happens on the day?

A. The registration desk opens at 18:30 before the walk starts at 19:30. Depending on your pace, we anticipate the walk will be completed by all participants between 20:30 and 21:30.
After completing the walk, certificates and food will be provided in addition to a range of entertainment. The night walk will finish by 21:30.

Q. What should I wear?

A. We advise you to please dress appropriately in your warmest clothes as temperatures are likely to be low and the weather may be windy and wet. Please also ensure your footwear is comfortable and ideally waterproof. Any other protective and waterproof clothing/accessories such as gloves, scarves and umbrellas are strongly advised.

Q. What do I need to bring with me?

A. Comfortable walking shoes are highly recommended, along with an umbrella or waterproof jacket in case of rain. It is also advisable to bring a fully charged mobile phone in case we need to contact you.
Please note: you do not need to bring a prayer mat as a prayer area will be allocated on the day along with WC facilities to perform wudhu.

Q. Can I come in fancy dress or costume?

A. Yes – of course! Being a night walk – we would be delighted for you to add a bit of sparkle to your outfit or wear your favourite super hero costume, but please do make sure it is appropriate for the event.

Q. Can I register as a group with family/friends?

A. Yes, our previous walks have had many numbers of groups wanting to take part and we encourage you to get together to make it a memorable day out.
