£253k raised at the Vocal Arts Festival 2023

In December 2023, Salam Charity sponsored the Vocal Arts Festival – a seven-city music tour featuring renowned Islamic vocal talent. Thanks to our incredible supporters, we collected over £253,000 for urgent aid to deliver to Gaza.

£253,000 for Gaza

The funds raised by audiences at the Festival have supported our work in Gaza. We’re working closely with local partners on the ground who are providing hot meals and distributing essential aid. So far, we have delivered 1,576 medical items (including medication, lab supplies and blood bank items) and 2,856 food parcels (filled with ingredients to enable families to cook meals for a month). Humanitarian aid is still needed in Gaza, so please don’t stop giving to our Gaza campaign.

Top nasheed artists

Safe Adam, Ilyas Mao and Labbayk were among the lineup for these uplifting shows.

The Vocal Arts Festivals were enjoyed by almost 3,500 nationwide! From Glasgow to London, attendees enjoyed an amazing show with their families and friends. The show had designated seating for children, which allowed them to get involved, sing-along and even go on stage and perform with the artists. This tour really brought about unity within the community… we’ll be back again soon for sure!
