Syria Food & Medical Aid – 27/04/2018

InshaAllah this coming Friday, 27th April 2018, after Jumma prayers, the Masjid will be collecting food and medical items that will be sent to Syria through Anaya Aid. All members of the local community are requested to send something to help the people in dire need there.

Alhamdulillah we do not face anywhere near the difficulties that our brothers and sisters in Syria face and so it is only right that we share whatever we can to help alleviate some of the suffering.
