UK’s Halal hospitality sector begins donating to Palestine
Halal businesses in the UK hospitality sector have announced their support of charities providing humanitarian aid to the people of Palestine.
A small but growing number of food and drink companies are playing their part in donating a portion of their proceeds to help Palestinians that have suffered a sustained and brutal attack from Israel.
The owner posted on Instagram: “We all know how bad things are in PALESTINE and you really dont need me to go into much detail. All I ask is for you to please make some time and come buy whatever you can this Friday as EVERYTHING you spend will go straight to charity.”
He then supplicated: “Oh Allah, please help the people of PALESTINE. Their suffering is unbearable. I feel helpless sitting here watching them get killed. Our beautiful Al Aqsa Mosque being disrespected and taken away from us. Please Allah help us make this night a huge success and give us the ability to donate everything and more for PALESTINE.”
Meanwhile, Alam Restaurant declared it “will not be silenced” and would be “standing with Palestine” by giving 50% of its takings next Monday.
“Dine with us and for every £1 you spend we will donate 50p to Palestine through Islamic Relief. We want your support, standing with the Palestinians against the oppressors,” the luxury establishment in Birmingham announced.
“We stand with them and would like to help the cause,” said fish and chips shop Captain Haddock’s in Leicester whose charity day next Wednesday 26 May will see all its proceeds going to Palestine.
Another Birmingham based company, The Mocktail Mistress, which specialises in handcrafted mocktails, alerted on Instagram that 25% of all its profits from orders placed till 10 June “will be donated to the humanitarian crisis in Palestine”.
With 50% of its sales supporting the same cause, The Baklava Company in east London encouraged: “Please support and come and visit us over the weekend. We hope we can raise as much as we can Insha’Allah.”
