Did you know there are 50,000 people who are homeless tonight, right here in the UK?
Due to this growing need, the National Zakat Foundation and St Mungo’s collaborated to launch the Muslim Women’s Project in October 2012. It is a 14-bed shelter in South London which offers supported housing and support for homeless Muslim women and gives them the space to practice their faith and become part of the healing process.
Opened: October 2012
Partner: St Mungo’s is one of the largest charities for homeless people in London. St. Mungo’s also has experience of working with the Muslim community through supporting Muslim offenders to resettle within their families and communities. This experience, as well as their expertise in tackling homelessness on many different levels, makes St. Mungo’s an ideal partner in establishing our first homeless women’s shelter in London insha’Allah.
