Over the new year, youth from the Ahmadiyya Muslim Youth Association (AMYA) Scunthorpe visited key workers across the town and donated gift hampers to the local Police Station, Humberside Fire & Rescue, Scunthorpe General Hospital and Lindsey Lodge Hospice.
The local president of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Scunthorpe branch, Dr Mohammed Kamrudeen said:
“It is the religious duty of young Ahmadi Muslims to take time out of their day and serve the local community. I feel this was a good initiative by the local youth and I hope it brought some joy and festive cheer during these difficult times.”
The AMYA looks to aid in the development of young Muslims. The organisation has been particularly successful in insuring that its members are a source of peace for the society around them. Some of the regular activities of AMYA include, blood donation drives, tree planting, street cleaning and visiting care homes. This is in line with the Ahmadiyya Muslim motto of ‘Love for All Hatred for None.’
