UK Coronavirus Appeal: Millions are vulnerable

According to the UK Government’s figures, over 290,000 have tested positive for Coronavirus, of which over 44,000 have sadly died.

Covid-19 has brought the way of life of millions of people in the UK to a standstill. Many communities are finding themselves in vulnerable situations financially, emotionally and without access to essential support.

Islamic Relief is supporting the country’s most vulnerable people through local charity partners. £500,000 was made available to support these organisations and any further funds donated will only help us support more vulnerable people.

Helping at home: Support those in need

Whilst supporting vulnerable communities across the globe, we are also working hard to help those in need here in the UK.

In the UK, our response so far includes:

  • Financial Assistance: We’ve donated £150,000 to the National Zakat Foundation to go towards their Hardship Fund. This is enabling vulnerable people to get cash so they can buy essential urgent items such as food, toiletries and nappies.
  • Food Aid: In partnership with a range of organisations including Green Lane Mosque, Give a Gift and Sufra NW London, we’ve been providing people in need with food parcels and food vouchers in Birmingham, Leeds and London.
  • Medical Equipment: We’re working with CW Plus (the official charity of Chelsea and Westminster Hospital NHS Foundation) to support their intensive care facilities, including the financing of syringe pumps and seven portable workstations.
  • Muslim Burials: We’re supporting Muslim burial services in the UK, providing funds for PPE equipment, the repurposing of funeral washing facilities and to provide a bigger mobile mortuary.
