Alhamdulillah we have had a letter from our sister Fatou in Gambia.
We have been supporting her financially and it has made a huge difference to her and her children in terms of education for her children by paying her school fees, being able to pay her rent, study fees, fish money and healthcare Subhan'Allah. Living how we do, most of us reading this either have free access to the above or pay but still have the options available. We are all aware of the needs of so many families around the world and on our own doorsteps but are we doing enough to help them Subhan'Allah.
All we ask is for a donation of just £4 a month to give us the income to help those who have no other or very little in the way of support. This project is tiny compared to many of the large charities around but our passion to help those is endless. We have a personal care for each indiviual and will be with them as long as Allah permits.
Fatou wrote this to thank you all and to also ask that we continue to give so that the burden of poverty be relieved from them
This is sr Fatou and two of her three children and a heartfelt letter to you all.
My friend this morning told me that when she went on a recent visit to Gambia Fatou was looking so much better healthwise as at one stage she was coughing up blood.
Please continue to give fi sabil Illah so we may continue to support.

This is a very short video I came across today which is very inspirational in terms of giving fi sabilIllah
Reported by Abu Huraira (RA): Allah’s Apostle (peace be upon him) said, ‘If one gives in charity what equals one date-fruit from the honestly-earned money and Allah accepts only the honestly earned money, Allah takes it in His right (hand) and then enlarges its reward for that person (who has given it), as anyone of you brings up his baby horse, so much so that it becomes as big as a mountain.
Imagine, when you give from halal means and purely for Allah sake, He takes it in His right hand and enlarges it Subhan'Allah
