Siemah Ahmad, fourth from left, says Barking Ahmadi Muslims see it as their duty to donate to women's refuges

A minority Muslim group donated more than 100 food hampers to nine women’s refuges.

The women’s Barking branch of the Ahmadiyya Muslims Association sent the food to secret locations across east London throughout last week.

Volunteer Siemah Ahmad, 38, said it was vital to reach out to domestic abuse victims as International Women’s Day fell on Wednesday.

“We’re helping women who are vulnerable in society,” she said. “The women in our community want to share a message of peace and show we care about everyone in our community.

“Islam means peace and looking after all members of the community.”

She said this year’s donations amounted to a hamper for each woman recovering at east London’s refuges, following on from last year’s donation of 57.
