Muslim youth group helps flood victims in Cumbria

Volunteers from a Muslim youth group have been helping flood victims in Cumbria today.Sixty members of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Youth Association, from locations including London and Scotland, have been assisting people in the Allerdale area.Some of them have been travelling to the flood stricken areas daily since Tuesday to help out residents and relief groups.

Muddassar Ahmad, National Director of Charities and Social Activities for AMYA, says he hopes this helps people to “see the true nature of Islam”.As Muslims we are duty bound to always help one another, especially when such disasters strike. Also I think it’s important that through our actions people can see the true nature of Islam.

December is usually a busy month for us as we increase our charitable activities and have many homeless feeding sessions, care home visits and providing gifts for sick children during the Christmas period.”
