PMA-UK is a group Filipino Muslims compose of different tribes from Phillipines living in United Kingdom. It’s been almost ten years now since that momentous day when PMA-UK was founded by the visionary pioneers, elders of Filipino Muslim community here in United kingdom. In the early summer of May 2009, all Muslim tribes from the Philippines gathered in Kensington Palace Garden< Hyde Park London to witness the formation of a community whose aim is to unite, solidify and promote Peace, Kindness, Respect, Love and Tolerance among its member and the wider British society. History as made for it was the first association in it kind in UK and perhaps in Europe.
Steadfast and resolute, the first elected officials headed by the Chairman of the Executive Committee Hajji Abdulmannan Wahid spearheaded the launching of Ramadhan Iftar program in August 2009 and the succeeding EID celebrations. The news spread far and wide, brothers and sisters from as far as Birmingham and Scotland where able to join in major Muslim celebration of Eid’l Fit’r and Eid’l Adha sponsored by PMA-UK. The members grew rapidly in number from handful determined, excited and enthusiastic individuals, it grews to hundreds within the span of time.
Since then, we can name few of PMA-UK’s achievements like; supporting and actively involve with charity group here in UK, sending of relief goods, zakat sadaqa to those in needs back home, training seminars and workshop to develop and empower of officers and members, organising sports activities for our Kids, Youth and adult for them to become fit both physical and mentally and staging of EID celebrations every year. As years past by, PMA-UK is now focusing on its core program called RHYSE - Relief, Health, Youth, Sports, Education.
