MKA Canada reaches out to Indigenous communities

Syed Mukarram Nazeer, Canada Correspondent

Majlis Khuddam-ul-Ahmadiyya Canada, through different initiatives such as “Feed the Homeless” and “Holiday Dinner on Wheels”, continues to provide food to marginalised communities throughout the year. These efforts accelerate during the Christmas holidays.

Often, Indigenous communities are the lowest income earners and struggle to acquire the basic necessities of life. For many years, the Majlis has worked with various Indigenous communities across Canada. One such interaction took place on 18 December 2023 in Saskatoon Saskatchewan.

In cooperation with the Indigenous Desk Canada, Majlis Khuddam-ul-Ahmadiyya donated 100 food hampers filled with dry goods, winter gear, and pizza to students at the Saskatchewan Indian Institute of technology (SIIT). SIIT is a First Nations-operated post-secondary institution offering training and educational programmes in Saskatchewan, Canada.

These initiatives are in line with Hazrat Amirul Momineen’saa instructions to Jamaat-e-Ahmadiyya Canada to collaborate and build strong relations with Indigenous communities across Canada.

A number of guests attended the event and appreciated the efforts of Jamaat-e-Ahmadiyya Canada. Some dignitaries among them were the Vice Chief Federation of Sovereign Indigenous Nations (FSIN) and Board Chair SIIT, Associate Vice President Academics of SIIT, and Associate Dean of SIIT.
