We have responded to the refugee crisis by supporting over 500 refugees accommodated in hotels in our borough and in the City of London. They have been helped with essential clothing and basic provisions, following a wonderful community response

We are working with other charities and the local council in a multi-agency partnership to provide continued support. We have made available the London Muslim Centre to create a temporary refugee hub, supported by Care 4 Calais and other charities.

We provide food every week to the families near to the mosque, and have welcomed them to attend the congregation and classes. Our welfare funding has supported over 300 families so they can buy essential items.

Dilowar Khan, Director of the East London Mosque, said:

We will continue to work closely with our partner organisations to help meet the needs of these refugee families. We have asked our community to assist where possible, and we thank them for their ongoing support.

The Mosque is working with Tower Hamlets Council and charity relief organisation, Islamic Relief, to ensure the continued needs of the refugees are met and to support their physical and mental wellbeing.
