Jaffna Muslim Association – UK
Founded in 2002, Jaffna Muslim Association is a non-profit charity organisation created to help the people who were forcibly displaced from the town of Jaffna in Sri Lanka in 1990.
Jaffna Muslim Association focuses on providing help to this community in Sri Lanka. We have provided financial help for widows, education for children, medical help for those who need it and built buildings necessary for the community.
Annually, JMA provides Qurbani and Fitra services in the United Kingdom to help Muslims from the Northern Province as a result of the Sri Lankan Civil War. It builds a bridge between separated communities, bringing them together once more.
In the United Kingdom, various programmes are held to keep the community together: community Iftars, Eid celebrations, Children’s programmes in order to encourage a sense of identity within the community, creating a close family bond amongst each other and educating them about their homeland back in Sri Lanka.
We believe that uniting the community and improving the lives of our brothers and sisters in Sri Lanka is very important, hence JMA officially became a registered non-profit charity organisation in 2011, to further our goals. In more recent times, the community has been trying to re-build their lives in Sri Lanka and re-settle into the area from which they were displaced with a considerable amount of help from JMA.
Our Projects are aimed at the needy. We plan these under the following major categories.
- Medical & Healthcare
- Food & Water solution
- Sustainable livelihoods
- Orphans and children’s
- Emergency Relief
- Fitra & Qurbani
When we involve and deliver projects, we always directly interact with the beneficiaries at a grass root level. This way we know, your donations and contributions are 100% utilised and delivered to the poor and needy.
As an organisation we represent the voices of the Jaffna Muslim community in the UK, we express our concerns regarding the human rights and social welfare of Jaffna Muslims on international arenas. We want to make sure the voices of Jaffna Muslims are heard, so that Jaffna Muslims feel represented on a global scale. The world is growing, but so is JMA. We are working towards building a benevolent community that will always remember the plight of the Jaffna Muslims and how they emerged as a successful, knowledgeable community once again.
