UK: Ahmadiyya Muslim Youth Association undertakes homeless feedings
A project to feed the homeless, undertaken by one of the region of Majlis Khuddam-ul Ahmadiyya (Ahmadiyya Muslim Youth Association), started on Friday, the 10th of February, 2012 in the UK.
Spearheaded by Tahir Region of Majlis Khuddam ul Ahmadiyya UK, the initiative of homeless feeding this year is again funded primarily by the donations made by their regional membership.
“The donation made would serve 60 people with breakfast, coffee or tea and lunch,” said Hibat ul Mohsin Abid, who serves as social services director for the Ahmadiyya youth in Tahir Region.
Tahir Region, which consists of local Ahmadiyya Muslim Youth Associations from Cheam, Epsom & Ewell, Surbiton, Sutton and Worcester Par, is working with Faith in Action, Homelessness Project Merton who distribute food, showers and clothing to homeless people.
On average 60 homeless are served food per day along with showers and clothes.
Abid said the food served to the homeless on February 12th was provided by the membership of Tahir Region.
Abid also said the project will go on for the foreseeable future.
“This is a continuous effort and a long term project,” said the social services director. “The next phase involves volunteers preparing the food as well along with training seminars … for the homeless.”
This will, according to Abid, “serve to motivate and educate the masses in general about how privileged we are and how we can better serve the society.”
The credo of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community, “Love for all, hatred for none,” has been fully adopted by the Ahmadiyya Muslim youth in the UK.
Ahmadiyya Muslim Association is one of the oldest Muslim organization in the UK.
