MK Muslims volunteer to improve Milton Keynes’ streets

Young Muslims from Milton Keynes joined the city council yesterday morning to help keep Britain’s streets clean after the New Year festivities.

As the world rejoiced in New Year activities, youth from the Ahmadiyya Muslim Youth Association (AMYA) Milton Keynes celebrated by being up at the crack of dawn to pray for a successful 2020 so that they can contribute and serve their local communities.

The big street clean is one of many initiatives that these young men have taken part in during recent months.

The group also organised blood donation sessions, collected money for British Red Cross, visited Children’s hospitals and Nursing homes giving them chocolates and gifts, donated food to the homeless & vulnerable and organised a free taxi service for the elderly on a Christmas Day.

Saeed Nazir, youth leader for Milton Keynes said: “Our members have enjoyed living in the region for decades and so any opportunity to help our local Community is a much welcomed one.”

“Cleaning the streets of Milton Keynes also presents us with an opportunity to become better Muslims as cleanliness is an integral part of our faith.

“Giving up a couple of hours can make a huge difference. We are a peace loving and well organised association which will continue to help make this great part of England an even better place to live in.”
