In partnership with Muslim Aid, the East London Mosque (ELM) officially launched its second annual UK Feed The Fasting programme. This flagship Ramadan campaign, introduced in the UK last year to address the ongoing cost-of-living crisis, aims to deliver meals to 90,000 vulnerable individuals, a significant increase from the 30,000 served in the previous year.

“The cost of living has hit the refugee community hard, and we will do as much as we can to alleviate the hardship of members of our community during this crisis,” said Junaid Ahmed, CEO of ELM. Ahmed spoke about ELM's mission to “inspire, serve, and educate.” He expressed joy in partnering with Muslim Aid and stressed that Ramadan is a month of compassion and generosity.

Khalid Javid, CEO of Muslim Aid, described the UK Feed The Fasting campaign as a "beacon of hope" and highlighted its emergence as a flagship initiative for the international aid group to tackle the cost-of-living crisis. Javid spoke about the universal message of compassion and solidarity, emphasising that this message transcends religion, culture, and national boundaries. 

The East London Mosque and Muslim Aid remain committed to supporting vulnerable communities during these challenging times and call upon the public to support the UK Feed The Fasting campaign in its mission to provide relief and assistance to those in need.

The ELM has donated over one hundred thousand pounds of Zakat to our community through its refugee hub. 

The ELM also provides cooked meals every iftar for over a thousand people, including the poor and the needy.
