On 10 Sep 2016, ALWEHDAH youths gathered together to conduct a house-to-house distribution of cash and daily necessities to needy Arab families in the Chai Chee, Bedok and Tampines residential areas. Most of the beneficiaries were elderly living in rental one-room HDB units.
This inaugural Eidul Adha "Gift of Love" campaign, spearheaded by the ALWEHDAH Youth Wing, was launched on 17 Sep 2016 and attracted total cash contributions in excess of S$3,000. Rice packs were also generously contributed by the Muslimin Trust Fund Association (MTFA) for this campaign. For the first time, secure credit card contributions were also made possible via the ALWEHDAH website.
Working in pairs, ALWEHDAH youths invited beneficiaries to relate their personal difficulties and needs during each house visit, so as to identify gaps that ALWEHDAH could help them overcome. Some of the beneficiaries also related fond memories of their younger days as active members of ALWEHDAH, and expressed their desire to contribute again to ALWEHDAH's activities.
ALWEHDAH looks forward to engaging all passionate members in future activities, and praise the Youth for their dedication helping the less fortunate, while forging closer community ties.
May we all hold firmly to the rope of Allah as one family, together. Amin!
