On 19 December 2023, Jamaat-e-Ahmadiyya Jamaica invited 60 children from two orphanages situated near the Mahdi Mosque. Both of these orphanages are managed by Sunbeam Home for Boys; a non-profit organisation that takes care of orphaned and mentally-challenged children.

After several days of planning, our Jamaat invited the children along with staff members from Sunbeam Home. For the first part of the day, there were fun activities organised for the children. This included football and basketball for older children, and bouncy castle and other light activities for younger children.

After enjoying themselves in the field, children and staff were invited inside the mosque for a brief session. In this session, missionary-in-charge, Tariq Azeem Sahib welcomed the guests to the Mahdi Mosque and invited various guests to speak.

The event included short speeches from Mr Desmond Whitley, Manager of Sunbeam Home for Boys, Mr Alwyn Lynch, a local business owner, Mr Jerome Forrest, a professional cyclist and a national champion, and Ibrahim Forson Sahib, Regional Missionary Trelawny.

After this brief session, children and guests enjoyed dinner, which was prepared and served by a dedicated team of volunteers.
