'Demand' for Muslim women's hostels

'Demand' for Muslim women's hostels | @NewDayStarts | Scoop.it
Demand for places at hostels for Muslim women in the UK has "exceeded all expectations", says an Islamic charity.
@NewDayStarts's insight:

An Islamic charity is to open a third hostel to cope with the demand of homeless Muslim women.

The National Zakat Foundation (NZF) already has two refuges, in London and Birmingham.

The charity said that since the hostels opened a year ago, almost 100 Muslim women have contacted them, most of them victims of abuse.
