Launch of ‘Assadaqaat Community – Connect’

Essential Support Programme for Individuals & Families affected by the Coronavirus pandemic

Everyone is affected – some more than others!
Join us in supporting our local communities

Members of our communities depending solely on daily wages, zero contracted hours and self-employed are severely affected due to the closure of businesses in retail, hospitality, transport, entertainment, and other small to medium business sector industries in Wales.

ACF has teamed up with ASDA and TESCO to offer special ‘ACF Gift Food E-Cards’.
This is to financially support and empower vulnerable members of our communities to buy essential food and household items from the nominated stores.
These special ‘ACF Gift Food E-Cards’ will be offered to the eligible members of our communities, strictly in line with ACF principles of ensuring respect, dignity and choice to our beneficiaries.
Please join and support us through your generous donations to help the individuals and families who are losing their livelihood, and are struggling to put food on the table for themselves and their families in the coming weeks and months.
