North West Relief Trust

History

North West Relief Trust came into existence through the efforts of Iqbal Adam (Preston) and Valli Patel (Preston), Yusuf Mangera (Bolton) and Yakub Musa (Bolton), Ibrahim Essa (Blackburn) and Yakub Bopa (Blackburn), during the time of the devastating earthquake which took place in Gujarat in 2001. 
 
Very quickly, support and confidence in the movement was further substantiated by the Preston Mulsim Society (PMS), the Lancashire Council of Mosques (LCM) and Bolton Council of Mosques BCOM). 
 
Within the first 2 weeks of making the appeal the charity raised a sum of £150,000 from Preston alone. The amount increased by a further £150,000 through the efforts in Bolton and Blackburn. 
Since the start of the collections a whole village has been rebuilt and up to 800 medical operations of various kinds have been carried out.
 
Donations are continually being received from the generous people.
 
All expenses are paid for by each of the individuals involved in the Trust and no donations are used for expenses. Therefore all donations are used for all the projects.
