“It is so uplifting to meet so many people blessed with generous hearts and a deep sense of community.”
The Komorun Nessa Fund was set up by Aziz Rahman, in memory of his late mother. The fund will help projects that support families and friends of those experiencing mental health problems in east Oxford and beyond.
The fund will support mental health initiatives primarily in east Oxford. The principle funding objectives via charitable and voluntary activities are two-fold:
- To provide support and guidance to the families and friends of those experiencing mental health problems
To enable families to understand the challenges of those with mental health problems and how best to help them
In the first instance, the fund will provide support to the communities in Oxfordshire that are currently under-served by existing services, or where there is less awareness around mental health issues.
All funded organisations shall be based in Oxfordshire, serving beneficiaries in Oxfordshire. Aziz’s vision is that this fund will grow, overtime, from an initial local initiative into one that can be used as a template nationally.
The fund is held and managed by Oxfordshire Community Foundation (OCF).
