Relief Work

For many years the Bolton Council of Mosques has supported the distribution of funds raised through the Mosques in Bolton for Emergency relief services across the world that assist people afflicted by conflict or disaster.

The funds raised have help many disaster struck areas of the world and has helped to re-start Sustainable economic development that integrates agriculture, health, housing and infrastructure, economic development, education and environment, with the training and establishment of local management.

Our work and reports show the commitment from the Bolton's community to support those in need across the world.

A deadly earthquake struck Indonesia on Boxing Day, 2004, claiming more than 275,000 lives and leaving hundreds of thousands injured. Almost 1.7 million people lost their homes and almost as many lost their livelihood.
It was the worst natural disaster many of us had ever witnessed and we donated generously to support the humanitarian aid for all those who were affected. The Tsunami affected areas in Indonesia, India, Sri-Lanka and as felt as far away as the African Continent.
