Sponsor me as I give up something this February to help families who are suffering right on our doorstep.

Your donations could support families with monthly food bills, Eid gifts for children, or winter support.

Following the arrest of their husbands, women are often left as single mothers overnight. With bank accounts frozen, benefits capped or withheld, they can struggle to feed their children.

Now imagine how much increased financial uncertainty a pandemic brings to a household already struggling. Families have been pushed to the brink with the deepest depression in the UK for 300 years, sparked by the pandemic. Two-fifths of people in the UK affected by fuel poverty had to choose between heating and eating, or were forced to cut back on food or skip meals.

Our beneficiaries have felt the weight of this financial burden drawn out for the past year. Some are reeling under the weight of crippling debt. For those in work, many suffered further with reduced hours, or were made redundant altogether.

“After paying rent, I’m left with nothing. I don’t know when I’ve been shopping last. I would show you my kitchen cupboard now but I’m embarrassed. I have to remind myself, ‘stop eating now because you don’t have anything for tomorrow."

HHUGS embrace families torn apart by counter-terror measures in the UK and often overlooked by the rest of the community. In these shattered homes, children face poverty, isolation and fear without their fathers. We provide financial, practical and emotional support to aid women, children and elderly parents through this devastating time.

HHUGS provide core financial support for families including monthly food vouchers, clothing, rental payments, utility bills. Your donations can feed, cloth and shelter right here in the UK.
