JMIC Update: Winter is harsh, especially if you are homeless in Slough & Windsor. In addition to the hostile weather, the homeless community is often targeted by criminals. Earlier this month a number of tents used by the homeless to seek shelter in were damaged by criminals (Slough Express report: https://tinyurl.com/y77xzepk). In response to a special appeal, the JMIC presented our community partners PC Medical Support Services, and Slough CVS with tents, base layers clothing, hats and other items to help members of the homeless community to cope with winter.
Mr. Latif Khan, Secretary at the JMIC stated: “Responding to the need of our town is a priority for the JMIC, it gives us great pleasure to play a role in alleviating the hardship of those being tested the most this winter”. Umar Ansari, Head of Community Outreach also commented that “…this is just another small example of our commitment to a progressive community outreach and development programme which is both effective and inclusive”.
The JMIC is already working on another longer-term project to serve the homeless community – details will be released when the project is ready for launch – watch this space and lend your support.
