A UK homeless organisation run by a Khoja volunteer is raising funds for vulnerable people and frontline workers at risk during the coronavirus pandemic.
These are challenging times for all and charities are collaborating together to help where they can.
Hand on Heart (in collaboration with Al-Mizan) is raising funds to help the homeless, elderly and deprived families that rely so heavily on food banks and food drives.
It also wants to protect frontline workers by providing protective equipment such as masks, aprons, protective gloves and hand sanitizers.

So far Hand on Heart in collaboration from other charities (Sufra, Who is Hussain, Nishkam SWAT and WF-Aid), has distributed 370 mini Winter Packs to the homeless in London, as well as sourcing essential food supplies for food banks.
The mini packs contain hand sanitisers (donated by WF-Aid and Stanmore Jafferys), wet wipes, socks, gloves, blankets, wooly hat, water and snacks.
Hand on Heart founder Afzal Pradhan BEM, a member of Stanmore Jamaat, said:
“As we hit the epicentre of this pandemic, you will be supporting those who need help and protecting those incredible heroes who supply it. We thank you in advance for your incredible support during this time.
“If you would like to help with this and other projects, please read the campaign and donate to our fundraising page here.”
