I have supported Al Manaar for over 12 years, and visit regularly. Indeed, I have commended Al Manaar to successive Bishops of Kensington as an excellent example of how our religious institutions can be mobilised to work in our communities – and they have concurred.
Their doors are always open. They were among the first to help with the Grenfell Tower atrocity, they fed, clothed and gave survivors somewhere to sleep. They feed the homeless and have facilities for both men and women to sleep safely in very cold weather.
I hope to visit them this week and will continue to do so. Their work with all ages, and their multi-faith outreach, is exemplary. I have nothing but praise for this organisation.
