Support the Creation of a Unique Community Hub in Newport

Alhamdulillah, by the grace of Allah, we at YMCO are thrilled to announce the upcoming launch of Newport’s inaugural Muslim-run Community Hub! This is a landmark moment, and we need your help to make it a reality.

Our goal is to raise £300,000 to fully establish and equip this vital facility. We are aiming for an initial £100,000 by the end of Ramadan to kickstart the renovations as soon as possible.

Invest in Your Community

Remember, as narrated in Sahih Bukhari and Sahih Muslim:

“When a son of Adam dies, his good works come to an end, except for three: sadaqah jariyyah (ongoing charity), beneficial knowledge (that he discovered or propagated), and a righteous child who will pray for him.”

Contributing to the YMCO Hub qualifies as sadaqah jariyyah, a form of charity that continues to benefit you beyond your lifetime. This is an opportunity to invest not only in your community and city but also in your eternal hereafter.

Note: This project will commence following the approval of the change of use in our planning application.

We pray that you will seize this precious chance to contribute to building a beacon for community development and spiritual growth in Newport.
