Grenfell Tower: Community stands together in face of tragedy

15th June 2017


Grenfell Tower - Community stands together in the face of tragedy

Like all that saw Grenfell Tower go up in flames, The Muslim Women's Network UK (MWNUK) are deeply saddened and outraged by this preventable tragedy. Our thoughts, prayers, and condolences are with all those affected.

Such events shake communities to their core and on the first anniversary of Jo Cox's death it has been inspiring to see communities uniting in the face of such devastation, proving that her spirit lives on. As Jo said:

"We are far more united and have far more in common than that which divides us."

               Jo Cox, first speech to Parliament 

MWNUK recognise the inevitable trauma and grief for those affected and can offer some counselling support to those who need it; if you or anyone you know has been affected please call the MWN Helpline on 0800 999 5786.
