FOUNDER SHEIKH BABIKIR
The Sheikh first founded Ulfa Aid in 2004 to support those who are marginalised, isolated and vulnerable across the globe. Researching, developing and implementing lasting solutions on a micro-level that are sustainable to the local community. Advocating for change on behalf of the most disenfranchised sections of our society.
It was from here that the Sheikh championed the U.K domestic programmes in 2011, Rumis.org aiding that philosophy to those more locally.
“One of the most inspirational places I have been to. The doors are open, the people are warm, and everybody is greeted with a heartfelt smile!”
