Rumi's Cave Legacy Appeal

Sadly, the main Rumi’s Cave centre at Carlton Vale has closed. Every effort was made to save this community asset but in the end it was out of our hands.

Being a non-profit, the closure of our centre has hit hard on our financial means for sustaining social care projects. 

"Allah is the best of planners"

Your support, even if small but regular, will help maintain a fully functioning food bank for the most vulnerable in our society, all year around. And your contributions will be key in securing a new safe space we can once again call Rumi’s Cave
