Assalam alaykum (peace be upon you) and thank you for visiting my fundraising page!

This year, I'm embarking on a remarkable journey as I prepare to take on the challenge of the London Marathon 2024. But this isn't about personal achievement for me, it's about making a difference to the lives of those who need it most. That's why I've chosen to run for Charity Right, focusing on Palestinian children whose struggles have been weighing heavily on my heart every single day.

The journey to this point has been unexpected. I received an email in December offering me a place in the Marathon and I was caught off guard. Running hadn't been a regular part of my routine for quite some time, and the idea of tackling such a monumental task seemed daunting. But then I saw the opportunity to channel my efforts into something meaningful, something bigger than myself.

The situation in Palestine, particularly in Gaza currently, has been dire, especially since the intensification of attacks in recent months. The horrific images and stories of children caught in the midst have truly haunted me, and I don't want to stand idly by.

Training for this marathon has pushed me far beyond my comfort zone. There have been days when I've questioned my ability, when every step feels like a struggle, but then I remember why I'm doing this – for the children who deserve a chance at a better future and for the families who rely on the support of organisations like Charity Right.

Your donation can make a world of difference in the lives of these children:

£13 can feed a child school meals for a month. £75 can feed a child school meals for 6 months. £150 can feed a child school meals for an entire year. £450 can feed 3 children school meals for an entire year. Even contributing just £1 helps towards my goal!

As I prepare to run 42km (26.2 miles), I carry with me the stories of resilience and strength that inspire me to keep going. But I also carry the weight of responsibility to make a difference and be a voice for the voiceless.

Every donation, big or small, is very much appreciated. Thanks so much for your support – it truly means the world to me and to the children whose lives you're helping to change. 

Please note that this project is Zakat-eligible. May Allah SWT accept your charity and make it a means of attaining His pleasure. Ameen.
