During the recent cold weather and winter storms, the Dawoodi Bohras of Nottingham organised a collection of warm clothing to benefit local vulnerable people in need of support.
Undertaken in partnership with Sharewear – which provides emergency clothing, shoes and bedding to people throughout Nottinghamshire – volunteers from the Bohra community donated coats, jumpers and other warm clothing, particularly mens clothing, which was in short supply in the area.
Hatim Hassanali, a volunteer from the Bohra community of Nottingham, commented, “We’ve had a particularly cold winter here in the East Midlands, and many local people without shelter have been struggling to keep warm. We wanted to help. The generosity of the Bohra community has been heartwarming, and I hope we can provide this kind of support every winter.”
The warm clothing drive was organised as part of Project Rise, a global philanthropic endeavour initiated by the worldwide Dawoodi Bohra community that aims to improve conditions for the less fortunate among us. Donating warm clothing is just one of the ways that the Dawoodi Bohras of Nottingham are supporting vulnerable members of the local community.
