About Al-Hilal, Robina said:

“Al-Hilal has been running for decades in Manchester and has a huge profile behind it which is why out of all the projects I engage with I feel truly blessed to be able to work on a range of issues facing our community, in North Manchester.

As three seasoned female Community Development Workers we want to enhance the socio-economic status of women, children, and vulnerable adults in the BAMER community. We have achieved much and as the community’s demands, stories of strength and willpower change, so too does our work.  We hope you can join us.”
