Over 60 members of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Youth Association, including members from Huddersfield and Sheffield, have travelled to Cumbria to help the flood relief effort.
Some of them have been going to the flood stricken areas daily since Tuesday to provide their assistance to residents and relief groups and services.
As Muslims we are duty bound to always help one another, especially when such disasters strike. Also I think it’s important that through our actions people can see the true nature of Islam. December is usually a busy month for us as we increase our charitable activities and have many homeless feeding sessions, care home visits and providing gifts for sick children during the Christmas period.
