TANZANIA, ZANZIBAR DEPLOYMENT

April 2022

Three of our foundations trustees were personally able to go out on deployment to help deliver your £14,000 and feed over 310 families with nutritious food for the entire month of Ramadan. Each family can have up to 10 individuals. 

Each £45 food pack provided a family with a whole month’s supply of essentials, including 1kg of Dates, 5kg of Beans, 10kg of Flour, 10kg of Rice, Salt, 10kg of Maize Flour Pasta, 10kg of Sugar and 5 litre of Sunflower Oil.


Uzi is an extremely isolated village in Unguja where some of the most neediest families reside. This village gets surrounded by water during the evening, so they lose complete contact to the outside world during darker hours.

We were able to distribute your food packs with benevolence and transparency. The villagers were extremely grateful and we had the opportunity to open our fast with them.

We thank each of you for supporting this cause.

WATER AND MONTHLY FEEDING PROGRAMMES - UGANDA

Ongoing

Approx 84% of Ugandan's rely on agriculture for food and their livelihoods which can make families vulnerable to weather cycles and natural disasters that can affect crop yields. 


Approx 21% of Ugandans do not have access to clean water, which impedes people’s ability to stay hydrated, avoid disease and cook meals. Malnutrition costs Uganda $899m per year (5.6% of its national income). For children, malnutrition is even more dangerous. Between 2004-2009, around 110,220 children died of malnutrition. 


On a monthly basis we install/repair water wells in extremely water deprived areas from as little as £200 and feed hundreds of vulnerable families/orphans on our monthly feeding programmes from as little as £1 per meal. We have also had a number of "In Memory of" projects in Uganda.

REVERSE OSMOSIS FILTERATION PLANT - PAKISTAN

December 2021

We have started to think about more sustainable ways of brining clean water to the people of Pakistan. These small reverse osmosis are a fantastic way of filtering bore hole water and turning it into clean, drinkable water, through its four filters. Ultimately minimising the chances of water bourne diseases.


These are usually set up outside schools, hospitals and other large scale establishments where footfall is heavy. You can donate one of these plants from as little as £550.

We have also started to install solar powered water plants in remote areas of Pakistan. More on this soon.

MASJID YOUNUS - UGANDA

November 2021

Bunyekero in district Kibuku is an area populated with Muslims who thrive to seek knowledge and find inner peace. This was not possible with the previous mosque which was made out of straw and was open to the elements, as well as having no source of running water. A purpose built mosque with a capacity of 150 people has been constructed with a well.


The people in this area are grateful to the Younus family of Sheffield, UK who have donated this mosque in the name of their late father.


You can also help us build a mosque in Uganda for a cost of £7,000 (additional £700 for a well).

GIFTS FOR KIDS

July 2021

On Thursday 22nd of July we purchased just under £1,500 of toys, games and gifts for the terminally ill, mentally challenged and longer-term patients for the Sheffield Children's Hospital. 


We worked as hard as possible to cater for all age groups, whilst also ensuring all toys were safe for the hospital environment. Gifts ranged from teddy bears, board games, colouring sets, group games, even some remote control cars!

In addition to this, we bought £34 worth of chocolate, and a big card just to show the staff how thankful we are for their work. They have worked tirelessly throughout the pandemic and are continuing to work hard, and the gifts don’t even begin to show our appreciation.

We would like to thank Jane and Abbie from the Children's hospital for helping us co-ordinate this, Smyths Toys for assisting us with the big shop and our sponsors Sun Casa Properties. We would also like to thank the Daily Star for taking our story to the papers.

GAZA EMERGENCY APPEAL

June 2021

A total of £41.500 was raised for this humanitarian crisis. In only 11 days of hostility and war hundreds of innocent children and civilians were killed after airstrikes. Over 450 buildings in densely populated Gaza were destroyed including six hospital and nine primary-care health centres and more than 52,000 Gazan's displaced. These civilians saw that 95% of water was undrinkable, only 4 hours of electricity per day and with thousands displaced and injured there was an increasing demand for us to provide urgent medical assistance and basic necessities including food.

We split this total into three sections:

1] Delivering emergency medical packs to hospitals and health centres to assist the badly injured

2] Financial assistance to those who have lost loved ones, this will help cover funeral costs and/or basic necessities for a short while

3] Emergency food/water to those that have been displaced, mainly orphans and widows. These nutritional food packs will support a family of 4 for a month.

As temperatures drop, refugees around the world are facing another brutal winter.

The blast killed over 200 people, injured over 6,500 more, and destroyed 3 hospitals, overwhelming Lebanon’s already fragile healthcare system. The blast caused US$15 billion in property damage, and left an estimated 300,000 people homeless. Your support of £3,240 allowed us to support the citizens of Beirut with food packs and medical aid.

SPONSOR A WEDDING APPEAL - BANGLADESH

February 2020

Bangladesh is one of the world’s most densely populated countries with a population of 161 million, yet it has one of the highest rates of untreated cataracts worldwide. Extreme poverty and a lack of awareness about health issues mean more than half a million people are thought to be blind as a result of cataracts. Moreover, half the population are female, living below the poverty line meaning they cannot afford to get married. We helped raise £2,000 for our partners, Blackburn UK Trust to hold marriage ceremonies for poor girls at £350 in West Bengal. Each couple received a double bed, mattress, blanket, bedding, sewing machine, double wardrobe, utensils and clothing. In addition, a cataract eye camp was set up and many patients treated successfully.
