Students were inspired after a visit from members of the Al-Imdaad Foundation, who came to talk about the charity work they do here and abroad. Working in over 65 countries across Africa, Asia, Europe and the Americas, the Al-Imdaad Foundation is striving to help the poor overcome the suffering endured due to natural disasters and lack of life’s basic necessities. They work with all in need, regardless of their race, religion, gender, nationality or political opinion. Most recently in this country, the group helped communities hit by floods.
A group of students organised a fundraising event on the last day of term in which students could pay to for henna tattoos, hand massages and samosas. In just one morning the girls raised £195 and have more fundraising ideas planned for this half term!
