Great to see such a positive article published today in @asian_image about our work:
📰An Oldham charity has been delivering food directly to service users during the lockdown.
Every Monday, before the Lockdown, UKEFF (UK Education and Faith Foundation) ran a food aid hub which is a lifeline for many service users. This includes some who are homeless and survive off food donations. After shutting the food hub, they had to adapt to restrictions and then delivered food directly to service users.
The Oldham food aid hub not only provided hot meals and warm clothing, but they also offered help and advice. UKEFF works with relevant agencies and provides support with legal issues, welfare and housing assistance.
They promote independence so that service users don’t become completely reliant on food banks. They also present lectures about Islam and comparative religion to schools, colleges and universities across the country.
While working at a technology and online development company, Nasim Ashraf co-founded UKEFF in 2008 with the Islamic objective of restoring social harmony and balance to the community.
Using his family home as a base he started by collecting food donations to distribute to the needy and the homeless.
The charity has grown ever since with the support of his wife Hafizan, who is a solicitor and a team of like-minded individuals.
Nasim’s primary aim is to “help and feed the needy.” He said in a speech, “The Quran compels us to reach out to the poor and the destitute and to the orphans.”
UKEFF’s work has been recognised as they were saluted at the House of Lords in 2018 for their achievements in Oldham and surrounding areas in combating destitution and addressing homelessness. UKEFF was referred to at the House of Lords as “the 4th Emergency service of Oldham.”
The charity is run by mainly Muslim volunteers who work with different communities in Oldham. Over the past five years the Oldham Unitarian Church has collaborated with UKEFF to facilitate the weekly food hub...

TURN YOUR DATES INTO MOUNTAINS
Many of us will do good deeds, but then forget to think about how Allah (swt) will reward us for them. We hope that in the akhirah these deeds will be mountainous. The question is though, are there some deeds which offer us more returns than others?
In his tafseer, Shaykh Sa’di writes that Allah (swt) will multiply anything we spend in His way 10-700 times! The reward for this good deed continues to increase and grow, and He (swt) may grant unlimited rewards and blessings to whoever gives with a sincere heart.
Giving in charity during this day is more virtuous than any other day. Ka'b, may Allah be pleased with him, narrated that the Messenger, sallallaahu `alayhi wa sallam (may Allah exalt his mention), said: "Charity given during the day of Jumu'ah is greater (in reward) than any other day."
To share in these amazing rewards, on this blessed day of #jummah donate to UKeff today.

This week we were greatly saddened to hear the news of Mercy Baguma, a Ugandan asylum seeker, who was found dead in her flat with her starving infant son beside her. Stories of extreme poverty and starvation are all too frequent to us and we do our best to ensure that no adult or child - REGARDLESS OF THEIR BACKGROUND OR CIRCUMSTANCES- should go hungry and suffer such hardships.
Upon hearing the news, a past Service User reached out to us to share her thoughts.
