Al-Mizan Charitable Trust is a Muslim grant-funder which supports disadvantaged people and deprived communities across the UK, regardless of their faith or cultural background.

Muneerah is a 21-year-old refugee who has been living in the UK for the last seven years. In her early teens, she was in a car accident and suffered from a brain injury, which has affected her short and long-term memory. As a result, she forgets what she has done and what she needs to do, she finds it difficult to participate in education, and she has become very vulnerable. This has also led to Muneerah becoming frustrated and angry, which has caused her to be very depressed.

Last year, Muneerah broke both of her ankles after she jumped out of the window of her first-floor flat, because she thought someone had broken in. More recently, the council gave her funding to furnish her flat, but the person she hired ran away with the money. Her support worker managed to find donated items for her flat, but wasn’t able to get a washing machine for Muneerah. This was particularly important for her, as she has trouble walking because of her ankles, so she struggled to go to the launderette. Her memory problems also meant that she would often forget her washing.

The Trust provided a grant of £220 towards a washing machine for Muneerah’s flat.
