The Charity Walk for Peace (CWFP) was founded in 1985 by the Ahmadiyya Muslim Elders Association (AMEA). The CWFP aims to relieve the suffering of the poor, promote peace, understanding and goodwill among people from all walks of life. Since 1998, the CWFP has raised over £6.2 million for well over 500 charities. In 2019, the CWFP was able to donate an amazing £1.2 Million.
This year’s walk will be held in association with the Mayor of Merton on Sunday 19 September 2021 in Morden Park, Morden. To raise awareness about the upcoming walk, a reception was held by the CWFP at Baitul Futuh Mosque on Friday 30 July 2021.
