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.
