TEHRAN (IQNA) – Worshippers of Faizan-e-Madinah Masjid (mosque) in Peterborough, England, donated money to help those affected by the war in Yemen.

A cheque for £2,000 was handed over by the Faizan-e-Madinah Mosque in Gladstone Street to help victims of the conflict in Yemen.

The cheque was handed over by mosque chairman Abdul Choudhuri to representatives of charity Islamic Help. It follows recent donations of £1,500 to help victims of the Syrian Civil War and £4,000 to support vulnerable families in Kashmir, Peterborough Today reported.

Mr Choudhuri said: "We made an announcement at Friday prayers telling the worshippers this is the reason we need the money and they are very generous.

"We only give money to bona fide charity organizations which have people there on the ground and can distribute medicine.”

Since March 2015, the Riyadh regime has been conducting a deadly campaign to crush the Yemeni Houthi Ansarullah movement and their allies and to bring back to power the former Yemeni government, a close ally of the Saudi kingdom.

The Saudi aggression has so far left more than 10,000 Yemenis, mostly civilians, dead.
