The charity was established in 2003 and was registered in the UK 2004. The aim was to provide opportunities for a better life to those in dire need. The initial focus was on healthcare, disability support, and economic empowerment which are needed to make a difference to the everyday life of the community members.
The charity is assisting the community since its establishment and for the last two years, a health clinic in Bangladesh (Ghorashal) is providing essential healthcare services, disability support and free medicine distributions to all those in need. We believe being able to take care of one’s health is a good step towards helping them succeed and gain a better life.
MMWF in the UK is working toward assisting all those in need, providing essential skills transfer, knowledge sharing, imparting training to all young unemployment and other striving to find employment. MMWF is helping the general public, but focuses its work also on elderly, women, and children in need, youth and disabled. MMWF is making a difference by promoting advocacy and reaching out to disadvantaged and vulnerable people by involving all key stakeholders. In the past, MMWF has demonstrated improving the employability of young people to make sure they have the right skills needed to be employed.
We also believe in working towards reducing antisocial behavior by working with young people to help avoid or reduce disengagement. These efforts are continued with organizing activities and events to help preserve heritage and cultural traditions. People should be able to be proud of their culture and history. This also aligned with community cohesion approach and it has significantly contributed towards reducing social isolation.
Since 2003 MMWF has reached out to the poorest of the poor in different parts of Bangladesh also. It has helped by assisting in relief operations and providing basic services (including first aid and medical support) that can improve living conditions immensely. MMWF has also provided disability support equipment, or helping in economic support by supplying agriculture tools. Sometimes distributing a cow or a goat to a needy family can make all the difference. Supporting poor students with books, bags, and uniforms can give amazing emotional support in a student’s education as well as giving them hope for the future.
MMWF is about all of these things and much more, it is a trusted name and stands to its reputation within the third sector and within the community. It is a passion for people and all that they could become are the drivers to change for alleviating poverty and improving their living conditions.
