This year, we are appealing to our members to help rebuild a school in Uganda in East Africa (in partnership with Muslim Charity).
The global pandemic has devastated many economies around the world, with school education especially suffering in developing countries. Please support our Fast Money campaign this Ramadan to rescue these children from the streets, providing them with a much needed safety net for their future.
So please spare your lunch money or unused train ticket and click donate below to help children in need!
