On behalf of PAFRAS and our destitute asylum seekers, thanks for your compassion and care for those left in abject poverty and in despair, who have no recourse to public benefits, and no permission to work.
Without ready access to food, and no legal way to earn money many destitute asylum seekers are pushed to the brink of starvation and it has not been uncommon for us to see cases of people who are severely malnourished.
The destitute asylum seekers were so greatful for the meals you so kindly donated to PAFRAS and they enjoyed them immensley, as one of our service users stated:
" I eat rubbish, I have no control of what I manage to eat, I pick up food from the pavements and rubbish bins, anything is better than none, whatever it is it could be your last meal" service user PAFRAS Nov 2011.
On behalf of us all our humble and grateful thanks.

Great to see this organisation established. It will help to remind/re-educate Muslims that the sunnah is to give charity closest to home, starting with the extended family, neighbourhood, wider community, etc.
However, I would like to see Muslims go further and establish an organisation that distributes both zakat and sadaqa to all people in need regardless of religion. There is a difference of opinion (approx. 50/50) amongst Muslims scholars as to whether zakat can be given to non-muslims. My family has decided to give its zakat to anyone in need, regardless of faith. There is no difference of opinion about sadaqa - it can be given to all, regardless of faith.
Imagine the impact of a charity, set up, run and funded by Muslims but donating to anyone in need. Surely, this is the sunnah and the future for UK Muslims!

I just want to say I found the Ghusl Training workshop very informative and useful.Well done to all those involved in organising it and to Samina for running it.

The Charity dinner was both an educational and fun event. I'm pleased there is an organisation which represents the Muslim community benfitting the UK in a climate where Muslims seem to be unable to do right. Thank you for the invite and good luck with the projects.
