And those within whose wealth is a known right for the petitioner and the deprived (Quran 70:24-25)
The pandemic has had a dramatic impact on the nation’s mental health, with 57% of adults stressed or anxious, and 64% reporting symptoms of depression.
With your support, we can help more people who are struggling to cope with mental health issues.
In the UK, suicide is the single biggest killer of men under the age of 45.
Donate £35 and you’ll provide one counselling session for one man who is currently struggling to cope.
Donate £500 and you’ll provide extensive counselling support to one male, giving him the support he needs to heal.
Breaking the silence
Men from ethnic communities face unique mental health challenges, which can be worsened by racism, stigma, and inequality. The pandemic has had a devastating effect on mental health, as well as the accessibility of treatment. 57% of adults experienced mental health concerns during the pandemic.
By working with The Meridien Centre in Bradford, you can help us to provide ethnic minority (predominantly Muslim) men facing mental health crises with specialised psychotherapy. The centre has advised the UK government on the link between childhood experience and mental health and are forming an alliance of minority mental health specialists.
Why give through Human Appeal?
Human Appeal has been working in the UK for 30 years. Last Ramadan, we supported 700 people in the UK via food parcels, and provided grants to 8 survivors of domestic abuse. During Qurbani, we supported over 1,400 people in the UK, distributing the meat of 35 sheep via food banks and soup kitchens in Birmingham, which often struggle to source halal meat.
Last winter, we helped to collect 22,917 coats from across the UK during our annual Wrap Up campaign in partnership with Hands on London. Together we supported people who are homeless, vulnerable, refugees or dependent on food banks. During the campaign, we were supported in 7 cities across the UK by 39 national and local organizations and companies. In total, 117 volunteers gave 358.75 hours collecting and sorting coats.
