Winter, Muslim NGOs Share Thousands of Coats in England

London, MINA – A non-governmental organization engaged in philanthropy in the UK, Human Appeal, plans to distribute thousands of coats to homeless people and vulnerable people this winter.

The coat distribution will be carried out in Manchester, Birmingham and Gasgow.

Extreme temperatures below zero degrees in the UK at the end of 2017 and early 2018 have invited the attention of this charity. Such extreme weather is likely to occur during this winter.

Earlier this year it was reported that the number of deaths from cold people in the UK had increased from year to year. The death rate increased from 31 in 2013 to 70 in 2017.


Reported on Morning Star, Thursday (8/11), in its Wrap Up 2018 campaign, this group has set a target of 3,000 coat donations to be distributed in three cities. This project is the third time that it has been run in Manchester and is the second year in Birmingham and Glasgow.

This project is inspired by the charity Hands on London, which has carried out similar activities for eight years. Donation points will be prepared in three cities, including at Piccadilly Station in Manchester.

While the coats will be collected from 12 to 23 November.

The manager of the UK’s Human Appeal Domestic Program, Samra Said, said charity was an important part of Muslim faith. Meanwhile, he said, there was a huge need for charitable activities in the UK.

“We are at Human Appeal want not only to offer assistance to those who really need humanitarian assistance, but to protect those who really need warmth,” Said said.

Meanwhile, Hands On London CEO Jon Meech added that they are very happy because the Human Appeal agency was carrying out a program in collecting coats. Last year, Human Appeal in Manchester won 28,000 pounds for victims of bombings at the Manchester Arena. (T/Sj/RS5)
