On January 24th, 2019, the Grenfell Muslim Response Unit (GMRU) hosted its final event – Grenfell Together. The event brought together the families, staff, volunteers, funders, and partners of the GMRU to reflect on the milestones and consider the wider social issues revealed by the Grenfell tragedy. Panel sessions featured survivors, campaigners and charity workers discussing the events of the past 19 months.
In the aftermath of the Grenfell tragedy – the biggest homeland disaster since World War Two – the National Zakat Foundation housed GMRU, making it possible for them to provide medium to long-term support for the families affected.
London Mayor, Sadiq Khan, attended the event and praised us for demonstrating the “true spirit of our city.”
