Mercy4Mankind – Ahmadiyya Muslim Youth Association

SHAFAQNA – Each year the AMYA organises a large charity event, the ‘Charity Challenge’, which invites people from across the UK to walk, run or cycle to raise money for charity. The Charity Challenge was established in the 1980s and has grown from being a modest event which raised hundreds of pounds for charity into a large national event that raises roughly a quarter of a million pounds each year. The event is hosted in a different area each year, with some previous areas including the Tower of London, Hampshire, Wimbledon, and the Yorkshire Dales. The beneficiaries of the money raised by the Charity Challenge have included Barnardoʹs, the British Heart Foundation, Great Ormond Street Hospital, Humanity First, Macmillan Cancer Support, the NSPCC, Save the Children, the Royal British Legion, The Royal Hospital for Neuro Disability Leukaemia & Lymphoma Research, and the RNIB.
“I applaud the efforts of Ahmadiyya Muslim Community to strive for peace and to build bridges between diverse communities… I therefore applaud the Ahmadiyya Muslim ethos, ‘Love for All, Hatred for None’, that underpins all their work,” said Boris Johnson, Mayor of London.
