It is an essential part of Muslim faith that as much as fulfilling the rights of our Creator by worshipping Him, we should also fulfill the rights of our fellow humans by helping them when they are in need. Allah Almighty says in the Qur’an: “And they give food in spite of love for it to the needy….” (Surah Al-Insaan 76:8)
At Swansea Mosque, we provide a foodbank service, which has been running since January 2015. The main aim of opening our foodbank was simply to help the vulnerable, struggling financially or emergency crisis. We help and support people from all faiths, nationalities and backgrounds.
The foodbank provides service users with pre-packed boxes of necessary food and other items to last up to two weeks.
The foodbank is a non-profitable service, which is sustained by volunteers and the good will of the community. We work in partnership with our congregation, local schools, businesses and rely on donations to provide this service.
