Our wonderful volunteers Mousa Raza and Imran Iqbal attended Bruntsfield Primary School in Edinburgh.
They were invited by the school to come and talk about the community work WCF does.
Mousa gave a short presentation regarding the WCF foodbank, foodtable and also our ongoing befriending service with Barchester Care Homes and Royal Sick Kids Hospital.
The kids, ranging from primary 5 upwards were very keen to hear about the work and asked numerous questions. We now have a small army of kids who want to get involved in all the fun events we host and also the community projects themselves.

Tough day today emotionally
– Visited several Refugee families in Saida and Beirut to assess their needs to help them insha’Allah.
-Most of the cases require medical care which they can not afford. Some of those who we did/will be helping include:
1. Child around 10 years old with lymphoma
2. Pre-school child with thalassaemia
3. A young boy with cerebral palsy
4. Lady with severe PTSD who watched her husband being killed in-front of her
5. An elderly man who had his leg amputated and needs a prosthetic leg. He has no family to help him.
6. Man who has become paralysed and has no family. He relies on his neighbours to care from him both medically and personally.
-We relocated a refugee family to a new house and paid for 3 months rent. The family are living in a shelter and have been asked to move out. Their only option is the street as they have no income because the father has stomach cancer.
And another early start
visited 4 refugee camps today and between them delivered 200 food box’s , hats , gloves , scarf , toys and sweeties
went back to 3 of the camps and severed up hot food
after lunch went back to the 4 camps and delivered 400 blankets as winter approaches
then went to meet Haji Riad ( 85 year old ) who runs
Dar Al Fatwa (partner charity on the ground ) and has been doing this for the last 65+ years
now back to the hotel for a bit of chill time
After jumma ( friday prayer ) we went and delivered 200 food pack to a block that houses 200 families
200 families waiting in line to get a food pack that will last them a month . . heart breaking to see the conditions they have to live in
