UK Muslim helps homeless people one wash at a time


“It was very cold last week – the temperatures dropped massively- so I thought let’s go and get some waterproof duvets and hand them out,” Qamar Aziz, who owns The Laundry Room in High Wycombe, told

“So we went out on Saturday and gave out 40 to 50 blankets in different areas of the town. It was amazing to see just how much they appreciated it.

“A lot of these people weren’t alcoholics or drug addicts or anything, they had just been brought into that situation or fallen on hard times.”

The kind-hearted shop owner offered his service for free and quickly realized others may be in a similar situation so decided to open it up to others.

Qamar, whose initiative has helped over 400 rough sleepers in the last year, is happy to help the needy.

“It doesn’t really cost much for me at all – just seeing the smile on their face is the best feeling.”
