Members of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Elders Association Islamabad have teamed up with East Hampshire District Council to organise its very own Charity Walk for Peace on 9th of September 2017 in Bentley Village.
The walk will be 4 miles from Bentley Station through Ship Wrights way to Alice Holt Forest Centre and then back to Bentley Station.
On 20th July Councillors Laetitia Pienaar and Councillor Julie Butler from East Hampshire District Council and Committee members for the regional committee of the CWFP, invited Dr Rizwan Ullah Khan (Regional AMEA Coordinator), Luqman Choudhry (Deputy Regional AMEA Coordinator) and Rafi Ahmad Bhatti (Vice Chairman CWFP) to promote the walk in their full court session.
Speaking on the occasion Mr Rafi Ahmad highlighted the achievements of the Charity Walk for Peace to date. Videos were shown of the walks held and included a piece from the Honourable Mayor of Newham who praised the efforts of AMEA UK for helping less privileged members of society.
At the end of the session honourable councillors were encouraged to share their thoughts and ask questions about the region walk.
Ex Leader of EHDC Honourable Cllr Ferrous Cowper admiring the efforts of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Association said that he has a long standing relation with AMA UK and mentioned that every single member of the organisation shines like a star wherever he is.
He also mentioned “Love for All Hatred for None is need of the time” and assured his full support towards regional charity walk.
Cllr Julie Butler, EHDC’s Portfolio Holder for Customer Relations, said:
“In East Hampshire, we are lucky to live in such tight-knit and tolerant communities. But it is no longer just enough to live that way – we must also demonstrate to the world that these are our values so that others may follow our lead. That’s why the Ahmadiyya Muslim Elders Association Charity Walk for Peace is so important and why we are happy to support it.”
The Charity Walk for Peace was founded in the service of humanity, rooted in the call of duty and substantiated by our mission actuated not by consideration of reciprocity or reputation but rather our desire to win the pleasure of God through service to his creation. Our aim is to relieve the suffering of the poor and to promote peace, understanding and goodwill amongst people of all walks of life.
The Charity Walk for Peace is an initiative of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Elders Association – part of the UK’s oldest established Muslim community. Inspired by the tenets of Islam, the Charity Walk for Peace aims to relieve suffering and serve mankind regardless of colour, creed or race. By bringing people together to help others it works to promote peace, engender greater understanding and promote goodwill amongst people from all walks of life.
Since its inception in 1985, the walk has been held at different venues across the UK with thousands participating each year. To date, over £8.9 million has been distributed to over 600 UK registered charities. A number of regional charity receptions and walks are organised throughout the UK culminating with the annual event organised to benefit various charities that provide practical help and support to vulnerable people.
We want to help society and support charitable endeavours and demonstrate loyalty to our country and nation. The distinctive feature of the charity walk for peace is that all organisers are unpaid volunteers and have no administrative costs. All operational costs are met by membership subscriptions.
