What is the value of £1 today? Not much! We spend more than this regularly on only a cup of coffee (£2.85 on a latte with Hazelnut syrup from Costa to be exact). But in reality over 1.2 billion across the world survive on less than this every day! And that is not just for food…
The mission we need you to join: The challenge is to eat and drink for £1 a day, for 5 days, giving you a small glimpse into the challenges and choices faced by those who live in extreme poverty every day. Team BMHC need you to join us in giving up our all our favorite foods for only 5 days to help eradicate global poverty!!
Sign up now from the 27th April-1st May. (active link)

You can also be involved by helping in our fundraising and campaign awareness efforts. BMCH want to be top of the leadership this year for donations and we need your help to do this. There are lots of great ways to become involved so make sure you drop us an email with any ideas you have! We need to show London what Manchester is made of!
BMHC have seen how this innovative campaign is taking off across the world demonstrating people are looking for a real way to engage with issues of extreme poverty. Live below the line is a means to promote Islamic teachings such as fundraising for the poor, caring for the environment and standing against injustices to the wider community so everyone should be involved.
This is what one individual had to say: “Live Below the Line is one of the best insightful and enlightening experiences. Having to survive on £1 of food a day for 5 days makes you not only appreciate the luxury of eating what you like but the impact of what you eat has on your health.” Jamila Kossar, Religious Studies teacher, Manchester Islamic High School for Girls, School Winners 2015
Plus we know that MADE in Europe is an organisation not only talking about these issues but campaigning about the root causes, man-made issues, which forces people in to extreme poverty.
CAN YOU LIVE BELOW THE LINE SO OTHERS CAN RISE ABOVE IT? (active link)
Support me and Team BMHC as we live below the line by donating now – your generous support will go towards fighting extreme poverty.
InshaAllah (God Willing) we will hear from you soon. Let’s complete the #MADE4LBL mission together as Team BMHC and let London know what we are made of here in Manchester!
