Muslims Connect is a local not-for-profit organisation based in Birmingham working to bring people together in order to connect, inspire, empower and guide the community. The organisation was founded by Shreen Mahmood, a proud British Muslim, born in Birmingham. Shreen has a passion for community and charity work and often organises events and workshops to raise awareness, create opportunities to learn and network.
In the past, Shreen has raised over £30,000 for various causes with different organisations for the Rohingya, the needy in Gaza and orphans in Africa. Through the Our Mothers - Mothers Day Dinner, Muslims Connect hope to raise much needed funds for the Muslim Hands Motherkind projects.
According to WHO, lack of access to good quality healthcare is fundamentally responsible for the vast majority of maternal deaths. Hundreds of women are dying every day from preventable causes related to pregnancy and childbirth. The solution is simple: we need to provide new and expectant women with better and more accessible medical care.
Our Motherkind projects have 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 assists around 360,000 people each year. Building on this success and the achievements of our clinic 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.
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.
