Muslim Youth make donations to Milton Keynes Food Bank

Youth from Britain’s oldest and largest Muslim Association in Milton Keynes have collected and delivered food donations to MK Food Bank Xtra for the less fortunate of the society as part of their regular charity initiatives.

More than 100kg of food items were donated.

Saeed Nazir, the local youth leader said: “We are together in these crises and will do whatever we can to support our local community.

“Islam urges every person to partake in charitable giving, and that even an act of kindness towards another is charity. AMYA has and continues to instil young people with a sense of civic responsibility, and a desire to promote harmony within our local communities.

With over 100’s of members in Milton Keynes, they have been volunteering all year in various activities under the national AMYA ‘Muslims For Humanity’ campaign.

The youth have been regularly visiting the hospitals and care homes lately as part of their civic and religious obligations.

AMYA is the UK’s largest Muslim youth organisation and the leading Muslim youth group challenging extremism in the UK.
