To celebrate Ashra Isaar (ten days for humanitarian services) Majlis Ansarullah Scotland organised various food donations across Scotland.
Our region is serving humanity in various capacities on a regular basis, especially since the Covid-19 pandemic started.
When these events were shared on social media, the charities involved retweeted widely and thanked Majlis Ansarullah Scotland for the donations and serving the homeless. Thus, the message of Islam Ahmadiyyat spread through these charities and homeless shelters.
On 18 November 2021, Majlis Ansarullah Glasgow made food donations to the charity “Help The Homeless Glasgow”. The food included hot lentil curry with rice and tea and coffee on a chilly cold evening.
