I ran away from my non Muslim family who wanted to kill me. I had no money and nowhere to live. I was sleeping rough in a park. SOLACE immediately found a place for me to stay.
I am 67 years old. I became Muslim 2 years ago. I felt extremely lonely as all the local sisters to me are mostly young mothers. SOLACE helped me find other sisters my own age and I now wake up smiling again.
I have learning difficulties and became Muslim in 2007 in a small village in Yorkshire. I tried to find Muslims to teach me how to pray. I went to one mosque and they told me women were not allowed here and closed the door in my face. With the help of SOLACE in 2011, I have just learnt how to recite surah fatiha.
