Young Muslims from Milton Keynes start New Year with street cleaning and visiting care homes

Young Muslims from Milton Keynes took the initiative to help keep Britain’s streets clean after the New Year festivities. Youth from the Ahmadiyya Muslim Youth Association (AMYA) Milton Keynes celebrated New Year’s by being up at the crack of dawn so that they could continue to contribute to and serve their local communities. The Big Street Clean is just another initiative that these young men were able to take part in this winter. The group has also organised blood donation sessions, collected money for British charities, visited hospitals and Nursing homes giving them chocolates and gifts and donated food to the homeless and vulnerable on Christmas Day.

Saeed Nazir, Regional Youth Leader said: “Our members have enjoyed living in Milton Keynes 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.”
