Muslims and Christians team up to help homeless

Thursday, 22 December 2016

Muslim and Christian groups in Britain are joining forces to help the country’s homeless and other vulnerable groups during the Christmas period. Organisations including Muslim Aid, the Al Khair Foundations, Streetlytes, and churches across the English capital London are expanding their efforts by providing meals and shelter packs to rough sleepers.

Their aim is to make sure those most in need are protected from cold weather and hunger during the holidays when many shops and services are closed or operating at reduced capacity.

More than a hundred homeless people attended a Christmas dinner event organised by the groups at the Church of St Stephen and St Thomas in London’s Shepherd’s Bush.
