Laiq Ahmed Atif
Imam & President Ahmadiyya Muslim Jamaat Malta
Ten wheelchairs have been presented to the Malta Community Chest Fund Foundation by the Ahmadiyya Muslim Jamaat Malta.
The presentation was made to Her Excellency Marie-Louise Coleiro Preca, the President of Malta, by myself, President of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Jamaat Malta.
The Malta Community Chest Fund Foundation (MCCFF) is a philanthropic organisation and works under the auspices of the President of Malta. The foundation supports individuals and entities to improve the health, quality of life and wellbeing of people in their time of need. The main aim of the foundation is that of improving the lives of families and individuals going through hardships. The foundation works towards social justice by providing care, dignity and respect to individuals and society in general without any discrimination.
Her Excellency, the President of Malta, said that the previous donation of wheelchairs by the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community in 2016 was very useful and many people had benefited from those wheelchairs. This addition of wheelchairs would be of a great service to the needy people.
Mr John Camilleri, Chairman of the Board of Administrators of the MCCFF, said that the donation would further assist the Community Chest Fund with more means to help people in need.
I thanked Her Excellency for her remarkable and significant work for the wellbeing of the society and for providing an opportunity to the Ahmadiyya community for serving the people in need.
I also added that while living in this country, the movement always feels obliged to contribute to the local community, and this is why we had decided to donate the wheelchairs to the MCCFF. The Ahmadiyya Muslim Community, I said, would continue its efforts to serve humanity irrespective of creed, colour, religion or politics.
During the meeting, other subjects related to serving mankind, promotion of interfaith harmony, Ahmadiyya peace symposiums and the Ahmadiyya Peace Prize were also discussed.
