Who will benefit from the funds raised via ticket prices and Just Giving Page ?
Rumi's Kitchen was established in 2012 in response to the needs of the local community. The founder of Rumi's Cave, Sheikh Babikir was the Imam leading the Friday prayer at The Islamic Centre & Mosque Brent, based in Cricklewood. During that time, many people were knocking on the doors of places of worship for help with food and clothing.
Did you know that it is easier to get funding for a whole new kitchen but not for a few basic ingredients?!
We run all year round, regardless of the weather and we have no restrictions to who we can help. All those people who slip through the net because they are not young enough, old enough or "poor" enough for certain benefits are caught by us.
More importantly than the food, we provide company to those who are socially isolated, an issue that was prevalent way before the Covid imposed lockdown. It has also been a refuge for our volunteers themselves, and over the years we have developed our own kitchen family .
We want to continue providing this safe space for years to come. If you are willing to help us in any way, please get in touch with us. Email email@example.com or donate direct with reference: Rumi's Women's Mawlid
Sisters for Allah are an on line community of sisters connecting for the sake of Allah (swt). They connect with various female scholars imparting sacred knowledge and organise Mawlids at Rumi's Cave, working alongside them on certain community projects. We are hoping to establish a network of services especially for women and children , looking at their religious, spiritual and practical lives. We are looking for volunteers or paid professionals to help set up these services and require funding to set this up. Please donate to Rumi's Kitchen and contact us by email for further details regarding this project in shaa Allah.
