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.
A few examples of UKEFF stories we would like to share with you, showing the importance of our campaign to Keep Zakat Local
I AM A SURVIVOR. 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 all we need to know someone 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 battled with the Home Office to get my benefits restrictions 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 our food and bills as I didn’t earn enough.
I have no family to support me - UKeff have become my family.
Please Keep your Zakat Local so they can continue to help other women like me.

I AM SAMER. I fled the Syrian war & the Red Cross helped my family join me from the refugee camp. We were given an empty property which housed my single bed and bedding. UKEFF helped us to make our benefits claim and gave us financial & food support until our benefits came through. They also provided beds, bedding, carpets, sofas, house-hold items, cutlery & crockery. They found school places for our children & 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 SAFINA. I am a single mother with 4 children. I was suicidal when my husband left me in debt. UKEFF have supported me emotionally and financially. I am suffering from a brain tumour and have to travel by bus 3 times a week out of town for treatment. I could not 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 & I had to leave the family home. I had no savings, debt was crippling me & I could not afford my flat. I slept in the local park or friends floors. I get £74 Job Seekers Allowance a week but as I was not able to buy food & cook it, I had to rely 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.
