Campaign Launch - Don't hang up on them this Ramadan!
Our Ramadan campaign is making a bold statement this year by communicating real life telephone messages from Muslims in the UK in distress. These are just a small sample of the calls we get on a day-to-day basis, but a reminder of the stark reality for thousands of our brothers and sisters on our doorstep who are calling out for your help. Don't hang up on them this Ramadan. To repeat this message, replay the video here. Please join us in our effort to raise £1.5 million Zakat locally this Ramadan for vulnerable and destitute Muslims in the UK. Repeat and respond to the message before you delete! Donate today.
