Ahmadiyya Muslim Youth Association thanked in Houses of Parliament for raising £400,000 for charity

A Muslim youth organisation has been recognised with a reception at the Houses of Parliament for raising hundreds of thousands of pounds for charity last year.

The Ahmadiyya Muslim Youth Association (AMYA) raised the money, which went to 42 different British charities including the British Red Cross, Great Ormond Street Hospital, Marie Curie and Save the Children, through its charitable campaign ‘Mercy for Mankind’.

Their fundraising activities over the last year, including cycling from Paris to Morden, a hike in the Bavarian Alps and 10k runs in Hyde Park and Manchester’s Heaton Park, led to AMYA raising their highest ever amount of £400,000.
