ANONYMOUS MUSLIM FEMALE DONOR  
One Muslim female supporter of Muslim Women's Network UK, has been very generous and has very kindly donated £2000 in Ramadan 2013 for a specific project dedicated to our former Chair Cassandra Balchin who lost her battle to cancer and passed away in July 2012.  Cassandra was particularly an expert in family laws, marriage, divorce, and parallel legal systems /plural legal orders.  Before Cassandra passed away, she wanted to produce an advice booklet to help Muslim women to navigate through the often complex process of obtaining a Muslim divorce and for them to know their rights as often women were unaware and suffered needlessly.  However, she was unable to complete this project.

Our donor will wants us to use the donation to realise Cassandra's dream and produce an 'Information and Advice on Divorce for Muslim Women in Britain' booklet.  This publication will be produced in late 2013.  So a BIG THANK YOU!

They have helped more Muslim women to become aware of their legal rights.
