On any given night, there are over 3,500 people sleeping rough across the UK, a number that is growing every year.
When sleeping rough, homeless people risk illness, injury, verbal and physical abuse, and death, all of which will be exacerbated by the cold winter months. The reality is that these people will have no one or nowhere to turn to for support, and budget cuts have reduced the availability of emergency accommodation for homeless people.
Please help Al-Mizan Charitable Trust distribute Winter Warmer Packs to people sleeping rough across the UK. Each Pack contains a sleeping bag, blanket, warm coat, fleece jacket, winter hat, scarf, gloves, thermal socks, underwear, toiletries, first aid items, umbrella, and snacks.
To sponsor a Winter Warmer Pack for £50, please visit: http://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/fund/winterwarmerpack
We will also need your help to pack the Winter Warmer Packs on Sunday 27 November 2016 from 2pm to 5pm at JW3, 341-351 Finchley Road, London NW3 6ET. This packing event is an interfaith initiative with Mitzvah Day, an annual day of faith-based social action. To register, please visit: https://winterwarmerpacks.eventbrite.co.uk
