Between 2010 and 2017, over 40 crucial women’s refuges have been FORCED TO CLOSE as a result of government austerity cuts.
There are now entire regions in the United Kingdom where NOT A SINGLE women’s refuge exists.

The Mumtahina Jannat (MJ) Women’s Refuge Project – named after our founder and CEO Onjali Raúf’s beloved aunt – seeks to aid selected existing refuges by:

  1. Mobilising individuals and groups to independently raise goods and funds for the shelters and projects we support; and
  2. Supporting future improvements to the infrastructure and services where possible.

We are currently working with three women’s refuges and projects based in London and Kent to identify ways in which we can help improve their environments and services.

If you are interested in volunteering and raising goods for this project, please SEE HERE.

If you are aware of a refuge that needs assistance, please complete and submit the form below.
