Thank you for your support with the volunteer initiative to support those affected by COVID-19. However, the health and safety of our volunteers is our primary concern. We therefore ask that all volunteers comply with the following guidelines to participate in service which may require you to be physically present.


If any of the following apply to you, then you should not be volunteering in a way where you will potentially come into contact with people.

However,  we would still like to invite all members of the Jamat to volunteer virtually through our various  social distancing volunteering projects.
