Sahara is holding its very first Womens Wellness Day, there is an opportunity for women to come together to learn, share, network and heal themselves. All of us need some time to be connected to the nature around
Every Wednesday we will be working within community to allow women the safe space and an opportunity to connect with one another, giving the space, time & release and relax. At the moment we are in the Lodge room 4 in Park Avenue Southall but very soon we will be moving to a larger space to accommodate more women, we are fully booked and have a waiting list every week.
Sufra and Sahara Sisterhood have teamed up together to help support women in immediate crisis. We are now eligible to issue food vouchers to women and their families who are in need.
SUFRA’s Vision & Mission Statement
- Community: The full range of Sufra’s stakeholders–from our donors to our volunteers and guests.
- United: We collaborate closely with our stakeholders so that we can better achieve our shared objectives.
- Causes: What led our guests to be in their situation. These causes range from an inability of our guests to navigate the benefits system, to government policies that exacerbate poverty and inequality.
- Consequences: The impact of our guests being in their situation. Consequences include food insecurity, homelessness, social isolation and a host of mental health difficulties that our guests experience.
Sufra NW London provides food aid, welfare advice and training to people in crisis, whilst working with the wider community to campaign for an end to poverty.

These must be booked before hand and a link will be sent out to you for each session once you register by sending an email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by booking on calendly.
In addition we are holding sessions for people who are dealing with Dementia and their carers in order to give them the opportunity to have a respite session, recuperate, reccaliberate and refresh themselves every week.
We have a highly specialised team who have training and the right information to be able to support any sisters suffering from this.
Our legal team will offer free advice to women who fall under the category of vulneralbe, assylum seeking, single parents and we endeavour to support you however we possibly can. Each case is treated with the strictest of confidence and no one has any access to our records or files other than team workers.
Our volunteers are trained by Mental Health England, we have nurses and doctors currently employed by the NHS working around the clock to support victims.
Welcome to Sahara, I am humbled to share my new website with you this month, November 2020 has given birth to a project very close to my heart. I have been engaging in human rights activities and social justice for the last 20 years.
Below is a recent memory at the Parliament of World Religions in Toronto speaking on Human rights and inter-convictional dialogues with women.
