Dr Mohammed El-Alfy obtained a degree in Engineering from Helwan University in Cairo followed by a Post Graduate Diploma, MSc and PhD at the University of Bradford. During his time as a student, Dr El-Alfy was actively involved in charitable activities and together with several others he established ‘Dar Al-Arqam’ - which has become one of the largest Islamic centres in West Yorkshire. In the 1980’s, Dr El-Alfy was moved to act on the plight of refugees from Afghanistan. This led him to establish the ‘Muslim Yateem and Widow Fund’ which soon joined forces with Islamic Relief. Dr El-Alfy has been continually involved with Islamic Relief since that time and has taken on numerous tasks and roles on a voluntary basis. Dr El-Alfy lives in London and runs his own company.
