Did You Know?

Beccles Airfield, also known as Beccles Airport or Beccles Aerodrome, is located in Ellough, southeast of Beccles in the English county of Suffolk. Built during the Second World War, it has operated as a heliport servicing the North Sea oil and gas industry and currently operates as a base for private flights, flight training and parachuting.
The military developed parachuting technology as a way for air crews to escape emergencies aboard balloons and aircraft in flight, and later as a way of delivering soldiers to the battlefield. Early competitions date back to the 1930s, and it became an international sport in 1952.


The Gift of Water:

With over 800,000 people dying from water-related illnesses each year, unsafe water is the single biggest obstacle to the health and prosperity of communities in the developing world.
Muslim Hands works globally to provide people with access to clean water and sanitation. The type of communities we work with vary greatly so our approach reflects this. Assessing the need for water on an individual basis, we tailor our solutions to specific problems.
With your support, we will build a Dig a Well in one of our many locations, that can serve up to 200 people, providing access to clean water for drinking, washing and cooking, as well as keeping livestock hydrated. On average, these wells serve up to 35 families.
