How the Charity was Formed
The Al-Madad Trust was founded by Hafiz Mohammed Zubair, of Forest Fields, Nottingham in
2007 and is a UK registered Charity
In 2005, Hafiz Mohammed Zubair’s mother was taken ill in Pakistan, and he was horrified to
learn the nearest hospital was 10 miles away – worse still, there were no
transport/ambulance facilities nearby – was it not for the grace of Allah (SWT), she might
not have survived. After her recovery, he vowed to put in place decent healthcare
facilities for the villages of Badral, Baleri, Kahi, Nalay and the surrounding villages in
Northern Kashmir to benefit. Thanks to numerous private donations and fundraising events
supported by Al-Madad Trust, they were able to fund for a fully equipped ambulance to be
sited in this location to advantage around 3000 people.
When the tragedy of the Pakistan and Kashmir earthquakes struck last year, Hafiz Mohammed
Zubair, along with so many others, was deeply affected by the disaster, especially with
having family in the region; but what distressed Him most of all was, despite everyone’s
best efforts, the time it took to help people in need – in some cases people were not seen
to for several days.
Killing in excess of 75,000 people, the devastating after effects of the South Asia
Earthquake sent reverberations around the world – and this prompted Hafiz Mohammed Zubair
and fellow Muslims from Nottingham to co-ordinate their efforts and make this an ongoing
fight against struggle, poverty and famine.
With the help of Allah, Al-Madad Trust strives to provide a glimmer of hope and relief to
impoverished people around derelict villages. The sanctity of human life is precious, and
Al-Madad operate on the principle that everyone is entitled to an opportunity to end their
suffering, a chance to live a dignified and peaceful life, and endeavour to act in this
spirit at all times. Be it financial support, offering medical assistance, as well as a
number of educational, cultural and environmental projects, Al-Madad is dedicated to
alleviating the suffering of the worlds poorest people. With your support, they can
continue to do so.
