Muslim women's hostels in 'high demand'

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.

Fifty four women have been given places and NZF has now secured funding for a third hostel in Greater Manchester.

Masha'Allah that's great. It's good to know such women have somewhere to go.

I'm not entirely sure what I was thinking when I asked that question but..

If a person wants to be away from their family and decides to live on the streets then, at the back of their minds they know that there are organisations that are willing to help them stay out of homelessness so rather than trying to sort their relationship with their parents, siblings or spouses, they just run away from the problem entirely?

I doubt that's the case as it's a very big decision to make, no one would simply running away not for a long time, without thinking about the consequences. Also there probably isn't that many organisations in one city for such stuff, and it would only be a temporary solution.
