Caring Huddersfield women will ensure that all Muslims get to share the Eid celebrations, thanks to a massive charity drive.
Ladies from the Huddersfield South Ahmadiyya Muslim Women’s Association in have collected hundreds of gifts over the last few weeks to give to the less privileged in Pakistan.
Clothes and other special goods of all shapes, sizes and colours were gathered in the Baitus Samad mosque in Fitzwilliam Street, along with donations to help cover postage costs.
They were flown over to poor regions in the country, where they will be distributed to those in need, especially brides in poor families, in time for Eid-ul-Fitr, which the group will celebrate on July 30 .
President of the group, Khalida Maryam said: “Eid is a time for celebration, enjoyment and time with the family.
“We are very fortunate in this country to live a comfortable life, however we must remember those who do not have even the basics.
“Many outfits were sent to Pakistan which will of course be gladly received. These will be distributed to those who need them.”
Secretary, Autia- tul-Manan, said: “ We decided to hold the drive to help our youth to understand that they are part of humanity and not just to focus on their own needs.”
It is just one of the initiatives held by the group, who also devoted time to caring for those who need help in the local area.
They will hold a charity walk from Baitul Tauheed mosque in Spaines Road on August 10.
