Syrian Refugee Relocation

By | Press Release | No Comments

Have you heard? Your family is about to get bigger…

You may not know, but in 2015 the UK government committed to resettle 20,000 Syrian refugees through the Syrian Vulnerable Persons Resettlement Scheme (VPRS). Those in dire need of medical attention, survivors of torture, and women and children at risk were to be prioritised in this scheme. The most vulnerable Syrian asylum seekers would be brought over to the UK to be re-housed and essentially, to re-start their lives.

Why are we telling you this?

It is with great honour that we finally announce that TFGLM (Task Force Green Lane Masjid) is sponsoring a Syrian family through this scheme!

Over the years, TFGLM has consistently provided basic aid to Syrian refugees in the form of food, shelter and clothing. But this time, we wanted to do something more. When we came to learn that we could support a family coming over to the UK and help them rebuild their lives, we jumped at the opportunity.

While we rejoice, we must also reflect upon the reality of our Syrian brothers and sisters’ lives and experiences. Alhamdulillah, we live in safety and comfort. We can scarcely imagine what it must feel like to wake up with a destroyed home, murdered family members and absolutely nowhere to go.

The traumas of war run deep

The traumas of war run deep, and for this reason, we wish to invest long-term into the future of this precious family. We believe it is an absolute honour to be in a position to serve our brothers and sisters in such a meaningful way. Through this sponsorship, we hope to re-ignite their hope, facilitate their healing, and help them to rebuild their once vivid dreams.

Very soon now, our first Syrian family will be arriving in the UK. We are honoured that they will become part of our incredible community. This is all very exciting, and of course, we all look forward to welcoming them to their new home. However at the moment we have a house for them, but we need your help to transform it into a home.

The house needs decorating and is unfurnished and we need to come together to decorate this house, purchase furniture, arrange a delicious welcome dinner and sincerely show our new family that we are delighted to welcome them.

Let’s make this family a part of our family!

Bedrooms:

  • 2 single beds
  • 1 double bed
  • 1 baby cot

We invite you to play a part in this noble cause, and we look forward to working together to rebuild Syrian lives.

The Prophet(SAW) said:

(Bukhari)

Over 70% of the world is water, yet almost 1 billion people across the world lack access to clean water. It is relatively simple to install a professional water filtration plants in these areas, and now it is even easier to donate towards it:

Success Story

By | Press Release | No Comments

Rayhana is an eight year old young Syrian girl whom, we have been supporting for a couple years now; through out the process of her medical treatment.

During an airstrike by the Syrian regime, her house had been struck by a missile. She had been left with extremely serious injuries to her arm and leg.

We had first met her Rayhana at the Syrian border; where we promised to support her financially in order to get her mobility back.

With the permission of Allah, she is now walking for the first time in two years. She has had her smart limbs fitted successfully and is mobile.

We would like to thank all our donors who made this possible with their prayers and donations. It is success stories like Rayhana’s that keep the TaskForce team motivated and continue to work hard to help many others like Rayhana.

Ramadhan Relief 2018: LEBANON

Ramadhan 2018 has been an extremely busy Ramadan as it is every year. This month our volunteers have made a trip to Lebanon for our Ifthar campaign. From the 15th fast till the 20th fast, our dedicated volunteers have been living amongst those most-needy, our poor brothers and sisters many of them have barely enough to eat to sustain their lives and often scrape by on one miniscule meal a day. Our amazing volunteers are providing drastically needed and life-sustaining bread to young children, many of whom are orphans, broken families, the weak and the elderly, during this most significant month for Muslims. This has been an enormous, success for TaskForce GLM to use all your donations to deliver flour in its best form- bread. This bread is easily stored, easily delivered and aids in remaining edible for long hours. Alhamdulillah and remember placing your hands to donate, in Lebanon it is enabling our volunteers to use their hands, to place the bread in our Brothers and Sisters.

Turkey Update

We visited Turkey in April 2017 for a field update on our Syrian Bread Project. We met with our primary suppliers in Northern Turkey and logistics partners to ensure overseas operations are being effectively implemented. We also identified and short listed a number of sites for our Syrian Orphanage which is due to open shortly.
