Several times a year, we take groups of aspiring changemakers out to Turkey, Pakistan, and Bangladesh for a one-week deployment to deliver essential aid to those in need. During the course of the week, volunteers identify families in remote areas for door-to-door deliveries, distribute food parcels, visit the school, orphan care facilities, eye camps, as well as spend time with locals. It really is a once in a lifetime opportunity with many volunteers signing up for another deployment as soon as they return!

Muhammed Desai, Blackburn (August 2018) "A massive thank you to you guys at SKT for providing the opportunity for volunteers like myself to experience a deployment. I can honestly say it's changed me in more ways than one, and I'm extremely grateful that I got to go with a team of such incredible individuals. Ma Shaa Allah you guys were great with the organising and Temour was a fantastic team leader, may Allah reward him and yourselves for all your efforts." Nazia Parveen, Redditch (August 2018) "My favourite aspect of the deployment has to be spending Eid day with the children at the Springs of Hope Family Centre. It was such a magical day, one that I will forever cherish!" Sofia Iqbal, Birmingham (May 2018) "From the very first pound I raised of my £3000 target, right down to the last parcel I delivered to a family in need, the Turkey deployment was definitely an emotional and humbling experience. The days I spent in Reyhanli, Turkey helped me to understand that continuous acts of charity are paramount to ensure that we mean it when we say: love for your brother what you love for yourself."
