The Pekbeken Ali Foundation is a charity registerd in England and Wales (1148259).

Each day most of us are reminded about the terrible suffering in the world, and we hear about the truly pitiful situations in which people find themselves, frequently through no fault of their own. We see these challenges on a daily basis and a single donation can make a big difference to someone’s life.  

Helping people in Bangladesh is our passion, inherited from our fathers desires to help the most vulnerable in society. Mohammed Ali’s father died in 2004 and a huge void was created not only in Mohammed’s life but in the lives of the people within his community in Bangladesh. The responsibility to carry on his great work was taken on by Mohammed and his wife Nihal, a responsibility that they were happy and proud to accept. Later in 2010 Nihal’s father died, igniting a passion to build on what had already been done. Nihal and Mohammed realised that if they really wanted to make an impact on these communities they needed to scale up their operations and create a charity. The Pekbeken Ali Foundation was created in January 2012

Bangladesh is one of the poorest countries in the world and has a population of 164.4 million (UN 2010). In Bangladesh, 26% of the population are malnourished, 46% of the children are underweight and as a result 43% of children under 5 years old suffer from some form of stunted growth. Stunted growth is a primary manifestation of malnutrition in early childhood, including malnutrition during fetal development brought on by the malnourished mother. 

Poverty in Bangladesh is widespread, with the nation estimated to have 30% of the population below the poverty line as of 2011.

As of 2000, only 45 percent of Bangladeshis were considered literate, and an estimated 25 percent of 6 to 10 year olds were not in school. 

We cannot help everyone in Bangladesh, but we will try and assist as many families and children as we can.  

Why are we unique; one hundred per cent of your donations go into helping people with all the administration costs being covered by Mohammed and Nihal. 

Please take a few minutes to go through our website and read what we have achieved.
