Caritas Anchor House has been awarded £2,000.87 by the Charity Walk for Peace to help support and further our vital work with homeless people in East London.
Caritas Anchor House was presented with the cheque at a reception held in the House of Commons, co-hosted by the Ahmadiyya Muslim Elders Association (AMEA) and the All-Party Parliamentary Group for the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community.
This summer, residents and staff of Caritas Anchor House took part in the 28th annual Charity Walk for Peace, in London’s Royal Docks. Organised by AMEA, the event aims to support vulnerable and disadvantaged people and to promote peace and goodwill. Over 2,500 people participated and helped to fundraise £3 million for local and national charities.
Dr Ijazur Rehman, President of AMEA UK, said “It was heartening to see the event so well attended by the charities and senior parliamentarians. The Ahmadiyya Muslim Community’s long-standing motto is ‘Love for All, Hatred for None’ and this walk epitomised the very essence of this, where people of different religions and race came together for a common cause of building a better world.”
Keith Fernett, Chief Executive of Caritas Anchor House, said, “We are grateful to have the support of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Elders Association, which will enable us to further our life changing work with hundreds of homeless people each year. Their desire to support so many charities working with the most disadvantaged in society is highly commendable.”
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.
