Help for Homeless Community

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.

In the summer of 1982, a Welsh Congregational Church was purchased and converted into a Mosque. This, however, was quickly outgrown and as a consequence of that, the old building was pulled down to make way for a new and improved version - the Mosque you see today. Construction began in 1999 and during this period, the Navel Club behind the site was purchased and used as a temporary building for daily prayers with Jummah (Friday congregation) being held in a hired hall. The completed Mosque was named the 'Jamia Masjid & Islamic Centre' (JMIC) and although it had been in use from the year 2000, the official opening was on the 18th of May 2001 by His Excellency, Abdullah Sultan Al-Dhahiri - Director General of "The Zayed Bin Sultan Al-Nahayan Charitable and Humanitarian Foundation".
