What started off as a 26-mile marathon walk in 1985, raising a few thousand pounds for worthwhile causes, has now evolved into a ‘Mercy4Mankind’ initiative, whereby the Ahmadiyya Muslim Youth Association looks at different ways to support the wider society through community outreach programmes and raising thousands of pounds for various British Charities.
The Ahmadiyya Muslim Youth Association (AMYA) takes its inspiration for its charitable works from the example of the Founder of Islam, the Holy Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him). He was referred to in the Holy Quran as ‘Mercy for all the Worlds’ and this is reflected in his teachings and practice. He was a source of peace and mercy for all and left behind teachings guiding his followers to do the same.
Today under the Mercy4Mankind campaign, working with its charity partners, AMYA helps fundraise hundreds of thousands of pounds every year for its charity partners. On top of the fundraising activities, AMYA members also engage in community outreach programmes as part of its charter for Service to Mankind. To reach more about the activities click here.
All organisers of the campaign are unpaid volunteers which helps us to raise maximum funds for the chose charity or cause.
