The Ahmadiyya Muslim Elders Association UK and the All Party Parliamentary Group for the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community hosts a charity reception
The Ahmadiyya Muslim Elders Association UK and the All Party Parliamentary Group for the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community is hosting a charity reception at the House of Commons on Wednesday 30th November 2016 between 1.00pm – 2.30pm.
This year’s event is also part of the community’s nationwide ‘United Against Extremism’ campaign that seeks to bring people together to show solidarity against extremism and to promote peace.
Over the last 28 years the Ahmadiyya Muslim Elders Association has raised nearly £3 million in its flagship “Charity Walk for Peace”. With every penny raised going to UK charities it has been working tirelessly to help society, support charitable endeavours and serve humanity.
The charity walks have supported and benefitted 207 charities since 1998 including the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Charitable Fund, the Royal British Legion’s Poppy Appeal, Action for Children, Age UK, Alzheimer’s Society, British Heart Foundation, Great Ormond Street Hospital, Humanity First, Macmillan Cancer Support, Royal London Society for Blind People, and the Samaritans and many smaller local charities across the UK.
Ijaz Rehman, President, Ahmadiyya Muslim Elders Association UK said:
“We engage in charity work because our faith, Islam, teaches us to be active citizens working for the good of all. It also teaches us to promote peace in every situation so it is our duty to put this noble principle into action. That is why charity is so important to us and why our ethos is Love for All, Hatred for None.”
The event will see the charity donate funds to 50 UK charities and will be joined by key leaders and representatives from the world of charity, faith and politics. Refreshments will also be provided.
