Chadwick Lawrence Solicitors has partnered with the Enkhanz COVID-19 Response Group in support of the most vulnerable in the Bradford Community.
The COVID-19 Response Group has been set up by businessman Naveed Khan to deliver food and safety packages across Bradford to the most vulnerable in society during Ramadhan. Working with the Bradford Foundation Trust the aim is to reach out and to provide support to those most in need.
On Saturday, some members of the Chadwick Lawrence team gave up their spare time to deliver 270 care packages to those struggling in the Bradford area to get food, medication and PPE during the pandemic. They will continue to do this each weekend until the end of Ramadhan.
Asma Iqbal, partner at Chadwick Lawrence, said: “Our business is based at the heart of the Bradford business community. As an insolvency specialist, I understand the impact that COVID-19 has had on business across Bradford and the wider Yorkshire region.
“Throughout the coronavirus pandemic, my colleagues and I have worked non-stop to provide support to business owners struggling to plan for the unknown in uncertain times.
“But the impact of coronavirus has had a much wider impact across the Bradford region beyond the business community. Lockdown during the pandemic has highlighted the needs of those who are the most vulnerable, those who are isolated and those who are suffering.
“Ramadhan is a time for connection, being together and for family time. Whilst lockdown disrupts the way that we celebrate it provides time for contemplation and reflection. As with those across the Muslim community, it is important that to reach out to those who are less fortunate.
“It is a privilege to support Naveed Khan’s COVID Response initiative. Chadwick Lawrence has nine offices across West Yorkshire providing legal support to a diverse range of clients across the region. Through our partnership, not only can we contribute directly to those who need help but we can provide support by calling on our network of valued clients and contacts within the business community.
“This is a sacred time for the Muslim community. We have to have faith that we can pull together to survive these difficult times. My hope is that with the help of my Chadwick Lawrence family we will be able to help the people of Bradford support each other.”
Naveed Khan said: “With the support of Chadwick Lawrence on Saturday we were able to deliver 270 care packages across the Bradford region to those most vulnerable.
“However, as families struggle through lockdown and with Eid approaching myself and those from Chadwick Lawrence also wanted to ensure that we provided something for the children. I am pleased to say that on Saturday, with each care package, we were also able to deliver a gift bag of toys and puzzles for children.”
