Laiq Ahmed Atif, President Jamaat-e-Ahmadiyya Malta
The modern world starts the New Year with celebrations, fireworks and parties. However, Jamaat-e-Ahmadiyya Malta started the New Year by serving humanity and extending a helping hand to those in need.
On 1 January 2021, Dar tal-Providenza – a home for disabled people that provides individualised residential services to persons with disabilities – organised an online 12-hour charity fundraiser event.
During this telethon, Jamaat Malta provided food and soft drinks to all the volunteers, staff members and visitors who were working on this charity event. Members of the Jamaat, with great dedication and passion, served delicious Turkish cuisine to all the people who were engaged in this event.
Jamaat members also helped in conducting interviews and in responding to telephone calls and remained present there till the end of the telethon that ended at midnight.
Ahmadis also briefed the dignitaries about the Islam’s ethos in serving humanity and how the Jamaat implements this. They included His Excellency the President of Malta, the former President, members of Maltese and European parliaments and to the Archbishop of Malta.
Jamaat-e-Ahmadiyya Malta is so pleased and humbled to have this opportunity to serve humanity, and to start 2021 serving humanity.
