A Bristol Mosque is working with local businesses to provide food to those who are ‘sleeping hungry’ in the BS5 area.

On Tuesday afternoon February 2, Jamia Masjid Mosque in Easton teamed up with Borderlands – an organisation that helps asylum seekers and refugees in the city – to deliver food to families who need it most.

Borderlands – based in the Assisi Centre on Stapleton Road – is made up of volunteers and accepts donations from members of the community.

Chair of the Jamia Masjid Management board Abdul Malik, who lives and works in Easton, said: “Easton Jamia Masjid is always first to respond when the community is in need.

“We are working with several food support organisations in the city and have now teamed up with Borderlands to deliver this amazing work.

“We know that many people will be choosing between keeping their homes warm or a warm meal, so the mosque has also set up an emergency support fund to help people with their fuel costs for these chilly few days.”
