Humanitarian Aid

Mr. Mohammed Aslam MBE

The Trust cannot thank Mr Aslam, the founder member of the organization, enough for his energy and passion to travel around the world and help the destitute. He has travelled out of the UK over 70 times in the last 20 year and been away from his family for a period well over 3 years. He has travelled to many countries including: Albania, Kosovo, Croatia, Slovenia, Bosnia, Indonesia, Haiti, Pakistan, India, Bangladesh, South Africa, Malawi and Ethiopia.

The Trust has supported Haiti where we worked with the United Nations and helped house 500 people in tents that we took with us. In the Tsunami and the floods of Bangladesh and the earthquake of Pakistan and floods of Bihar in India we provided food, shelter, medicines and clean water through providing water wells. In Mazafarabad a breeze block factory was set up to help employ 20 people who in turn would help with house building. This project continues to this day. We also built a school for 1000 children and opened a Woman’s Centre to help educate 70 young girls and women in not only academic education but also skills such as sewing.

For the famine, as a result of failure of rains affecting the Horn of Africa, Mr Aslam travelled to Kenya in August 2011 and visited the refugee sites there and saw first hand the humanitarian crisis facing millions of people displaced from Ethiopia and Somalia. He was there with a Charity called Caravans of Mercy. Many thousands of families were provided with basics such as water, rice wheat sugar and tea. The trip lasted a week.

As it was dangerous to travel to Gaza Prof Gatrad enlisted the services of the Royal college of Paediatrics and Mr Aslam made a presentation to the CEO of Medical Aid to Palastine.

Mr Aslam has travelled to Syria 3 times between 2012 and 2015, and on one occasion nearly got blown up. He has taken blankets and food and MIAT has worked here with Caravan of Mercy to deliver aid safely. Prof Gatrad organized 60,000 blankets, from China, to each of these destinations: Syria, Gambia, India and Pakistan.

Floods in Malawi in 2015 were supported by MIAT – we built toilets for villages in the Zomba district.

Every year MIAT receives used Duvets from the University of Warwick – 6000 every year. These are regularly delivered to various needy countries such as Gambia and Somalia.

Working with the Oak tree Trust MIAT contributed 505 to the building of a school in Zimbabwe, a van converted into a school bus, school books and furniture. Many hundreds of duvets donated by Warwick University were delivered by Rev Wilbert of Broadway Church to Zimbabwe.

Nepal

The biggest venture for MIAT was the 3 visits that Mr Aslam undertook to Nepal. The first one, in April 2015 to provide food, water and medicines. The second was to plan the building of 1000 huts that both he and Professor Gatrad promised on ITV programmes. The third visit was to check what was donated was appropriately spent. Dr Ian Robertson of Oak tree Trust as always supports, and often travels with Mr Aslam as he did to Nepal. In 2016 MIAT is building a school near Kathmandu in Nepal in association with Radio XL Birmingham and under the auspices of the Nepalese medical association. In March 2016 he travelled with Children of Adam, a sister charity, to Lesbos in Greece to distribute toys, food, torches and sleeping bags.
