An important contribution to the success of Al-Imdaad Foundation UK around the world is its involvement with the UK communities in which it operates. We support a diverse range of UK community projects and we constantly appraise and prioritise how we can best serve our local communities to maximise the positive impact we can have.
Our teams across the UK work incredibly hard throughout the year to carry out these initiatives such as food banks, supporting local hospitals to feeding the homeless and to ensure someone like Enola Halleron can get back to some normality.
This year Al-Imdaad Foundation UK has decided to support Children with Cancer UK.
Every year, around 3,300 youngsters in the UK are diagnosed with cancer.
Children with Cancer UK is a leading national children’s charity dedicated to the fight against all childhood cancers.
Representatives of the Al-Imdaad Foundation UK attended the presentation in London and handed over the cheque. Abdul Ahad who has previously ran the London marathon in support of this charity said “we focus on a small number of selected projects where our contribution can make a real difference and today Al-Imdaad Foundation UK is pleased to be supporting Children with Cancer UK”.
Montelle Heasman who is also planning to run the London marathon 2015 to help raise awareness was deeply touched by the support of Al-Imdaad Foundation UK. She expressed her gratitude at the handover ceremony and said “I have been closely following the work of Al-Imdaad Foundation UK and I am immensely grateful for their support which will help save lives”.
Al-Imdaad Foundation UK’s generous support will help life-saving research into the causes, prevention and treatment of childhood cancer and work to protect young lives through essential welfare and campaigning programmes.
