Through its nationwide network of mosques and Islamic centres, the UKIM today serves the community, provides Islamic education to over 5000 Muslim children and raises funds for relief and welfare projects that are aimed at helping people and alleviating their suffering. The UKIM centres also make available information on Islam to schools, libraries, prisons, hospitals, churches, as well as to individuals who request it. Our branches organise public programmes, mosque open days, exhibitions, and setup leaflets and books stalls in public places for distribution. Some of our centres provide food parcels to those in need. They also regularly invite local schools and organisations to visit the mosques. Fellow non-Muslims are encouraged to visit our centres to discuss Islam over tea/coffee or dinner.
UKIM has 2 branches in Glasgow: One at Al Furqan Mosque and the other in the South at 70 Coplaw Street, Glasgow, G42 7JG
Through the support of our donors, our coronavirus charity appeal is funding family food packs and essential hygiene packs for struggling households throughout the country. Many family breadwinners have been hospitalised or lost their job due to COVID-19, leaving them unable to feed their families. Our food packs can help feed those struggling for up to a month, tiding them over during this extremely difficult period.
Similarly, our hygiene packs include key healthcare equipment like gloves, toilet roll, hand sanitiser and masks to help reduce the infection rate of the disease, preventing already struggling families from being further affected. With your assistance, we can bring safety and security where it’s needed most.
