On Sunday 23 June from 12pm to 8pm, the Azam Khan Foundation’s first event is scheduled at the Holywell Community Centre in Watford.

The purpose of the day is to introduce the foundation and the work they do to prevent and relieve poverty worldwide; particularly in remote areas where families and individuals are suffering the most. 

The charity provides donations of clothing, educational supplies, and goods to those in need and collaborates with other organisations to further this goal. 

Visitors will be able to enjoy performances, exhibitions and activities, including bouncy castles, henna, face painting, and various food stalls. They will also be collecting donations on the day.The charity aims to organise other fundraising events throughout the year.  

Sam Khan founded the Azam Khan Foundation in honour of his father, who was murdered while on holiday in Pakistan. He said: “We can make a difference to many lives who are struggling and cannot cope with the rising costs of living.” 

Previous collections by the foundation gathered  clothing donations and sent them to Pakistan via cargo, where they were distributed among those living in remote poverty-stricken areas.  

Watford Eid Mela hopes to serve as a platform for community cohesion. The foundation anticipates a great footfall and plans to organise this event annually.
