31st December 2017 Minhaj ul Quran London ended the year by hosting those in difficult circumstances and homeless at its centre on Romford Road Forest Gate. Over 30 volunteers from not only the mosque but from different parts of the community joined in distributing pilau rice, drinks and a whole host of food, snacks donated by the mosque, local businesses, volunteers, and well wishers. One unknown person donated 10 crates of bottled fruit juice drink. Later in the Evening volunteers went to Stratford Centre and met a number of warm hearted individuals, and organisations and together handed out boxes of food and drinks to those vulnerable on New Year’s Eve.  

Minhaj ul Quran International (London) achieved a significant first this Christmas by being the only Muslim organisation to attend Church on a Christmas day and help their Christian friends distribute food to the homeless. Over 35 volunteers from Minhaj ul Quran International (London) attended Emmanuel Church in Forest Gate to help their Christian friends hand out food and presents to the Homeless.  Muslims joined in the carol singing and observed the Christmas service beautifully conducted by Reverend Chigor Chike Vicar of Emmanuel Church with St Peter. This was a true message of love and social cohesion where the Reverend and all his congregation welcomed their Muslim friends.
