Usama Umar Joya, Missionary, Mayotte Island
Like other countries, Mayotte Island has also been in lockdown for the past couple of weeks. As in other countries of the world, Allah the Almighty has enabled the members of Jamaat-e-Ahmadiyya Mayotte as well to put their lives on the line and help serve mankind in every way possible.
Jamaat-e-Ahmadiyya Mayotte contacted the government to offer its services, upon which the government expressed their immense gratitude. The ambassador of Mayotte Island congratulated me and said that the service which we as a Jamaat are rendering for humanity is very helpful to the government.
The ambassador gave us cheques of thousands of Euros and said that it is now our responsibility to utilise this to serve those in need and also expressed his assurance that we would help the government in reaching out to those who are in need.
Alhamdulillah, Jamaat-e-Ahmadiyya Mayotte Island used that cheque to serve underprivileged people in the most remote areas of Mayotte. The areas that we helped were practically unreachable, one cannot access those areas through normal means of transport, rather walking by foot is the only way to reach them.
After helping the less privileged people in these areas, we also came to know that this was the first time that they received aid of any sort.
