Shah Jahan Mosque

The Shah Jahan Mosque in Woking has launched a 24-hour service offering food and other help to those affected by the COVID-19 crisis. The support is for those who are self-isolating, NHS workers, the elderly, vulnerable and low income families. As well as food packs, Mosque volunteers are dropping off medication and also offering things as simple as a (social distancing) chat.

The food packs are reaching people within two hours of initial contact. This SJM Coronavirus Self-Isolation Project has been funded by £8,000, mostly donated by those who attend the Mosque and with a substantial donation from a local church and other places of worship, and with food donated by supermarkets.

The Mosque manager, Muhammad Habib, says that the plan is to carry on this initiative for as long as it is needed on a large scale, to help all those in need in and around Woking. To acess the service, phone 07928 539061 or email: office@shahjahanmosque.org.uk
