Windsor Care Centre in Burlington Avenue and Windmill Care Home on the Bath Road received the masks.
Atiq-Ahmad Bhatti, president of Ahmadiyya in Slough said: “Our ongoing local community welfare and support initiative started back in March and since this time we have been able to provide support to local organisations and communities in Slough through voluntary donations and through providing a pick and drop service for essential supplies. It continues to be a difficult time for so many, especially the vulnerable, but we are here to help them and support them so we may get through the lockdown together.”
The masks were made by members of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Women’s Association. It took them two weeks to make 800 masks, which were also given out to homeless and vulnerable people as well as to the care homes.
Slough’s Ahmadiyya Muslim Community has been active throughout the Coronavirus lockdown helping vulnerable members of the community. It has also donated 340 food items to NHS staff at Wexham Park Hospital to help them keep going during a harrowing time.
