A MESSAGE FROM SAIF

LIVE IN GLASGOW

After coming back from Glasgow I was still buzzing from the experience and response from the audience. Alhamdulillah £25,000 was raised for the people of Gaza who need medical help. Meeting people who were supporters from day one was amazing.

Bumping into the Islamic Relief team again was great, it also reminded me why I loved performing in Scotland. The crowd are young, loud and responsive.

Alhamdulillah, I gained many followers from Glasgow so the journey back was busy getting to know you all through Twitter and Facebook. I love conversing with supporters and listening to their thoughts and ideas. I'm always striving for perfection because that's what the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) taught us.

THE FOODBANK

I wasn't sure what to expect at the Redbridge Foodbank as I'm used to offering my services to charities who provide aid in other countries.

These days there are many average families who are in need and struggling to keep up with life. When I turned up the project manager gave me an insight into the history of the charity and what they have achieved thus far.

Hearing that the government really supported this scheme was reassuring, showing that they realise there is a problem and they are taking action to solve this. I was then introduced to the rest of the team. There were people from all walks of life, one was even a primary school head teacher.

We then got to work and separated all the donations into boxes sorting soups, meat products and pasta and so on. We all worked together and it was really amazing being around such passionate people who really care about the local community.

This is something I really have an interest in and if my schedule allows, this will be the first of many opportunities to help charities such as this. After all home is where the heart is. If we all pull together to support our local communities we will be better prepared to help others from strength to strength.

Singer joins foodbank in Ilford
on New Year’s Eve to help families
in need

"A rising singer visited a food bank in Ilford on New Year’s Eve to help pack food parcels and give them out to families in crisis.

Saif Adam, 28, writes songs based on Islam. He said working at the Redbridge Foodbank was “an eye-opener”.

He added: “I have done quite a lot of work for charities abroad and finding that kind of deprivation on your doorstep is surprising.” The food bank, in Granville Road, is part of a national network of banks giving out emergency food to people struggling to make ends meet. The organisation also offers support to help people out of poverty by putting them in touch with other agencies.

Project manager Jocelyn Davis said the food bank has had to go from opening two days a week to five to cope with demand.

She added: “We used to feed about 100 people but now it must be much more. People need help for such a wide range of reasons. Some are coming in because of changes to the benefit system, some are referred to us by social services, people who escaping domestic violence and redundancy. A lot of people hit are in their 50s and can’t get back on the work ladder. Men come in here broken because they have lost their job and have to rely on a food bank.”
