Muslim Charity Donates Clothes to Covid Patients at London’s Nightingale Hospital
Human Appeal, a Manchester-based charity, answered the call to action from the Muslim Charities Forum after the Nightingale Hospital reached out for help.
Patients battling COVID-19 at London’s Nightingale hospital were in need of extra layers to keep warm during winter, due to the vast open-air nature of the makeshift hospital at London’s Excel Centre.
The Muslim Charities Forum alerted its members that help was required, and Human Appeal’s UK Programmes Manager, Abid Shah, was quick to commit the charity’s support. In total, Human Appeal provided:
- · 14 t-shirts
- · 15 pairs of joggers
- · 20 jumpers
- · 10 pairs of socks
- · 8 blankets
- · 10 pairs of leggings
Human Appeal has been responding to needs arising from the pandemic since last March, providing thousands of food parcels, hygiene kits and items of clothing to vulnerable families across the UK.
