Towering at 3209 feet high, the summit of Scafell Pike in the heart of the Lake District is England’s tallest mountain, making it a magnet for climbers and sightseers alike.
The summit was given to the National Trust in 1919 by Lord Leconfield. He did this in memory of the men of the Lake District "who fell for God and King, for freedom, peace and right in the Great War".
A survey by the National Trust in 2014 said that 100,000 people climb the mountain a year.
Decades of instability and conflict have already left families on the Gaza strip and the West Bank unable to enjoy the most basic of human rights such as access to food, water and medical treatment. 60% of Gazans suffer from food insecurity and half of its children are dependent on humanitarian assistance. There is also a critical shortage of medical supplies in Gaza.
Muslim Hands has been working in Palestine since 2007, providing medical care, food, education, shelter and livelihoods support to families across Gaza and the West Bank. We are currently providing food and emergency medical care to families in Gaza to help them cope with the devastating crisis which began in the last days of Ramadan.
Don’t leave the people of Gaza alone in their of need. Our partner is on the ground right now providing vital relief, but we need your help to reach more vulnerable families. Give now to alleviate the suffering of Allah’s best servants.
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.
