Members of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Women’s Association (AMWA) have collected more than 100 presents for women and their children, as well as teenage girls who have suffered physical and/or sexual abuse, living in refuge centres.
Over the past month, Samina Siddiqi from Ilford, as well as other local members of the AMWA have collected and donated presents that will be given to those in refuge centres, just in time for Christmas.
Mrs Siddiqi said that the AMWA’s motto is ‘Love for All Hatred for None’, and that the presents are “all about spreading love and kidness, because that was what the Holy Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) taught the world”.
This is part of long-running efforts by the AMWA to serve humanity and local communities, which include charity walks, tree planting sessions, visiting old people’s homes and raising money for charities such as the Royal British Legion and Macmillan Cancer Support.
