UK charity Muslim Hands have begun distributing 2,000 pieces of Personal Protection Equipment (PPE) to local Muslim Burial Councils and Funeral Services.

The equipment, which is limited across the UK, will include a hazmat suit, visor, foot covers and N95 mask, enough to protect a team of five.

The UK’s now the highest death toll in Europe with over 31,000 people dead and over 211,000 confirmed infected. Emerging evidence suggests that Covid-19 is having a disproportionate effect on people from BAME backgrounds.

In a statement to The Muslim News, the Charity’s Programmes Director, Shakil Sidat said, “Access to the correct amenities” are “not only for protection against the disease but to carry out their moral responsibility of honouring the deceased in the best way possible.”

Sufi Muhammad Ramzan, Islamic Centre Nottingham Coordinator, thanked the charity, “for their prompt response to our request in supplying PPE, as we have been short of this urgent resource.”

“Once this supply is finished, we will urgently need more PPE and at greater quantity, which we hope can be facilitated.”
