Please take a look below at some of the week we have done over the last few years with your prayers and support.
At UKeff we believe that we are ONE humankind and no one white person is superior to a black person, and no black person is superior over a white person, no ethnicity, creed, or culture is better than the other. Therefore our Meet Your Muslim Neighbours project tackles the misconceptions and general taboos, MYMN also provides essential training on these core issue to remove barriers in order to bring people closer.0%Raised: £0.00 £10,000.00

UKEFF (UK Education & Faith Foundation), was founded in 2009, to rebuild communities around the UK. Our aim is to restore social harmony and balance back into a community, which has had many unstable times. We have various initiatives focusing on community cohesion and improved understanding between different sectors of society, be they of a religious, cultural, ethnic or socio-economic nature.
Just a few examples of the success stories we would like to share with you, hence why we need to keep zakat local
We were moved to Oldham having lived in a refuge for months.
UKeff helped us in so many ways, to find our way around, meet people and make friends.
Thank you for listening to us, being there when we needed a shoulder to cry on and helping us to see that there is light at the end of the tunnel.
We may still be down but you give us a reason to get up and smile everyday, the phone call is we need to know someone somewhere close by cares.

I am Jamila, a single mother with three children. I had no recourse to public funds when my husband abandoned me. Ukeff have battled with the Home Office to get my benefits restriction lifted and then the benefits agency to help me claim benefits.
I have been working part time, despite having young children and Ukeff have supported me with YOUR Zakat to pay for my food and bills as I didn’t earn enough.
I have no family to support me and Ukeff have been my family.
Please keep your Zakat Local so they can continue to help other women like me.

“I AM Samer. I am a Syrian Refugee. I ˛ed Syria leaving my family in a refugee camp, they have now joined me in the UK. We were given an empty property which housed my single bed and bedding. Ukeff˜ helped us make our benefits claim and gave us food & financial support until our benefits came through. They also provided beds, bedding, carpets, sofas, house-hold items cutlery and crockery. They found school places for our children and introduced us to other Syrian families so we could make friends. Keep your Zakat local, so Ukeff can support other families like ours, to make Oldham their new home”.

I am suffering from a brain tumour and have to travel by bus 3 times a week out of town for treatment, I cannot survive without this support. Keep Your Zakat Local so families like mine can be supported”.

“I AM Jameel. I was made homeless after my marriage broke down and I had to leave the family home. I had no savings and debt was crippling me and I could not afford my flat. I slept in the local park or at friends. I got £74 job seekers allowance a week, but after deductions I was left with £52, which I spent on takeaways. When money ran out I used to beg for food, or search bins for leftovers. Thankfully the Oldham Food Aid Hub has helped with hot meals and clothing. I have recently found a job with help from UKEFF to write my CV.
Keep your Zakat Local donate food and funds to the Oldham Food Aid Hub so people like me do not go without food and shelter.
