Members of Edinburgh and Fife’s Muslim community are leading huge efforts to help their community put food on the table during the coronavirus pandemic.
“We really appreciate the hard work and support provided to people in Fife from the foodbanks in Kirkcaldy and Dunfermline, and Linton Lane Centre,” said Dr. Abdul Hayee, vice president of Ahmadiyya Muslim Community Edinburgh and Fife, Fife Today reported.
“We also are very grateful for the hard work of Fife Council during the pandemic, especially their bin crews, Fife Fire and Rescue Service, and Royal Mail workers.
Working under the motto ‘Love for All, Hatred for None’, members of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community in Edinburgh and Fife have been working tirelessly to help the less fortunate during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The group has also made food donations to the homeless, delivered supplies to foodbanks and sent small gestures of thanks to frontline workers across all sectors.
Its members also worked to collect and make donations of food to the Kirkcaldy Foodbank and Linton Lane Centre, as well as foodbanks in Cupar, Dunfermline, and Rosyth.
They also sent gestures of gratitude to frontline workers including NHS staff at the Covid testing center in Glebe Park Neighborhood Centre in Kirkcaldy, Fife Council bin men, and Royal Mail posties.
“This is a challenging time for many of us, including frontline workers across all roles, who have given so much to their communities throughout the coronavirus pandemic,” Dr. Abdul Hayee said.
“I am very pleased that our charity can help and support some of those who carry out critical work and are helping to protect us.”
Islamic charities and Muslim communities around the world have stepped in with efforts to help the less fortunate during this difficult time.
Earlier this year, members of Canterbury’s Muslim Cultural Centre rallied to donate food hampers to frontline workers.
The donated hampers included chocolate, sweets and a thank you letter to the frontline workers.
