Fundraising at Surrey Street Market, Croydon
Manju Shahul-Hameed Foundation for Mental Health is a well-established charity, Reg. Charity No. 1176447, founded in 2017. The charity aims to raising awareness and combat stigma about mental illness and promote mindfulness, with the intention of bringing together different communities within Croydon and the UK to empathize with those in need and to help them battle their struggles.
What We Do
The relief of sickness and the preservation of health among people residing permanently or temporarily in London Borough of Croydon and surrounding areas in particular but not exclusively by providing preventative services including meditation and mindfulness to deal with the underlying relapsing conditions, such as stress, anxiety, anger and depression.
Our vision is to build a future where living with mental illness will not be anything to be ashamed of and where the aged won’t be left to live a lonely life. There are many such people who may be feeling insecure, vulnerable and unworthy at the moment. Unfortunately, they may end up struggling till the end of their lives, though they don’t actually deserve it. Therefore, the charity focuses on letting such communities mingle with each other and thereby, support each other to lead a better life.
Impact and Highlights
Since the charity was established, we have worked with over many organizations from charities to businesses. Working collaboratively with our partners, our programme continues to transform Croydon, helping local residents especially the most vulnerable in our community. Some of the organizations, that we have worked with are Age UK, Mind in Croydon, Croydon University Hospital, West Croydon Methodist church, Parchmore Medical Centre, Croydon BME Forum, Asian Resource Centre of Croydon, Heartfulness UK and Dementia Action Alliance.
