Muslim Charities Forum is delighted to announce Clare Short as its new patron.
Clare, a former government cabinet minister and International Development Secretary, has been a longstanding friend of MCF and the wider Muslim charity sector and has agreed to join as a patron alongside Sir Stephen Bubb and Andrew Mitchell MP.
Clare’s wealth of experience in the international development sector will be key in supporting MCF in strengthening the position of its members and the essential humanitarian work they carry out across the world. Clare, as an experienced parliamentarian, will also compliment MCF’s political advocacy operation.
Clare most recently took part in an MCF-led delegation to Turkey to assess the humanitarian situation in the refugee camps on the border with Syria and is also one of the official judges in MCF’s Humanitarian Awards, taking place in February 2017.
