In November, Ismaili CIVIC Manchester donated 275 gifts to Sale Salvation Army, as part of their Present Appeal. These presents were donated on behalf of Manchester Jamat.

They were able to donate books, toys, toiletries, stationery, and school supplies, as requested by the Salvation Army supporting over 500 disadvantaged children in the local community.

“We are grateful to the Manchester Ismaili CIVIC for their support and generous donation of fantastic gifts and toys towards our Christmas Present Appeal. Thank you!” Sale Salvation Army Church & Community

As with all Ismaili CIVIC projects, this was the first of a long-term partnership with the Salvation Army, and the Manchester team are working closely with our partners on new initiatives.
