The holy month for so many is here, and there’s a lot to look forward to.
This Ramadan we’re celebrating the first year of Hifz Orphan, our campaign to help children become hafiz of the Holy Qur’an. We’ve identified thousands more sponsorships – orphans who desperately need your support – so please become a Hifz Orphan sponsor this Ramadan.
Our events programme is really busy this month. We have a #TeamOrange Iftaar tour with nasheed artists Saif Adam and Ahmad Hussain, a mosque tour with one of the world’s top Holy Qur’an reciters, and a speakers tour in association with Al Buruj. Keep an eye on our Facebook page for full details.
Plus, starting on 2nd July, we aim to set a new World Record by broadcasting live appeals 24 hours a day for over 11 days!
Join us daily on British Muslim TV (Sky 845) and Islam TV Urdu (Sky 849) to see how your donations are being used to transform lives.
If food is often on your mind this month, please remember the millions who never know where their next meal will come from. Provide nutritious meals for just £1 with Feed Our World by calling 03000 11 11 11.

Penny Appeal tours: For water, for orphans
We’ve had two hugely successful tours recently, which will allow us to transform more lives worldwide.
Nader Khan toured to promote his new album ‘Water’, which tied in beautifully with our Thirst Relief campaign. Money was raised to build wells around the world, which will give communities reliable access to clean water for years to come.
The Ladies of Light Tour gave sisters the chance to hear from renowned scholars and experience live performances from talented musicians, poets and storytellers. Fundraising took place for OrphanKind, and sponsorships raised will go on to give children brighter futures.
Next up is our 4-city Iftaar with Saif Adam and Ahmad Hussain this July, presented by our #TeamOrange volunteers. Get your tickets now and join us for a wonderful evening of food, music and fundraising.

#TeamOrange trekkers conquer Mount Snowdon
Our intrepid #TeamOrange volunteers reached new heights at the weekend – they conquered Mount Snowdon!
A group of 50 trekkers took on the challenge to provide clean water to the people of Nepal.
“We set off in the evening, so as we were climbing #TeamOrange got to see the sky turn orange at sunset!” said Khalil Benkhalil, Fundraising & Challenges Coordinator.
“It was an amazing experience. The climb was tough, but everyone did brilliantly and we raised enough to build over 50 hand pumps in Nepal.”
Sign up to #TeamOrange now for challenges and other fundraising opportunities. You’ll make friends and save lives!

#TeamOrange bungee jumpers help Syria bounce back
Daring members of #TeamOrange did a 160ft bungee jump at the weekend to help the people of Syria.
They raised thousands of pounds, which will go on to provide emergency food and medical aid for Syrian refugees in Lebanon.
“It was an amazing experience, with lots of people doing a bungee jump for the first time,” said Khalil Benkhalil, Fundraising Officer.
“There were some nerves, but we got through it thanks to the beautiful London skyline, a few words of encouragement and knowing that we were doing it to help others.”
