Members of Charity Walk for Peace, an Ahmadiyya Muslim Elders charity initiative, collected and donated £500 to the staff of Sutton Mental Health Foundation (SMHF) on Friday 27th September 2019.
SMHF is a supported charity of Rt Hon Tom Brake – MP for Carshalton and Wallington.
Members of Charity Walk for Peace were privileged to donate much needed funds to Sutton Mental Health Foundation. Senior staff members, Ovie Oboh (Operational Service Manager) and Carol Jacques (Peer Support Manager and Community Lead) were introduced to Mr Rafi Ahmad, Vice Chair of Charity Walk for Peace, and a thorough introduction to the amazing work of SMHF was shared.
Rt Hon Mr Tom Brake MP and the senior staff were then presented with a £500 cheque. Tom praised the efforts by members of AMEA and CWFP to raising the money for such a noble cause and thanked CWFP for their caring service to mankind. Sutton Mental Health Foundation (SMHF), support individuals from all the communities with mental health issues and provide them with a platform to meet and obtain guidance from within their facilities.
All the guests, members and staff were provided with a traditional fish & chips lunch. Rafi Ahmad assured SMHF that CWFP’s efforts to support their work would be ongoing and invited the staff to the forthcoming East Surrey Poppy Appeal Launch being hosted by the Ahmadiyya Muslim Elders Association UK.
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.
