Ahmadiyya Muslim Youth Association has launched a new initiative called “Neighbourhood Helper” to help Canadians who need assistance during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The new website states: “Just because you’re self isolating doesn’t mean you’re alone, we’re here to serve.”
“It is crucial for Canadians to come together and support each other during these difficult and uncertain times,” says Mr. Zubair Afzal, national president of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Youth Association Canada. “We have launched the Neighbourhood Helper campaign to help Canadians who need it most.”
Through this program, Muslim youth will be connected with Canadians who need help picking up groceries, filling prescriptions and overall moral support. Community members who need a helping hand are encouraged to call 1-855-HELP811 or sign up on www.helpingneighbours.com.
