NORCROSS, Ga. – Oct. 12, 2017 – PRLog — There are over 1.5 Million residents in Forsyth, Gwinnett, Hall, Newton & Rockdale Counties in Metro-Atlanta.

Mark Reiswig, Director of Emergency Preparedness for Gwinnett, Newton & Rockdale Department of Public Health states, “In order for local health departments to fulfill their mandate to provide critical medications and/or vaccine in a timely manner to the public – in the event of a terrorist attack or pandemic, it is crucial for us to have tremendous support from volunteers and other community partners.The task is huge, our resources are limited, and the mission is critical. I hope that this event will begin to bring many new partners to the table to be educated and trained – to help save millions of lives.”

To fill this need, Noah’s Ark & Co. is co-sponsoring this LOVE GOD SERVE TOGETHER event with the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community- where the groups involved are attempting to reach out to 500 faith based organizations who can be trained to help with this massive effort. (Other event partners are the Gwinnett, Newton & Rockdale Counties – Department of Public Health, the Medical Reserve Corps for Gwinnett, Newton & Rockdale counties as well as the Suwanee Congregation of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.)

Ahmadiyya Georgia Chapter Leader, Hazeem Pudhiapura, encourages public and private businesses to pitch in when he says, “Serving God and His creation is the essence of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community. Being prepared to serve during a disaster helps us demonstrate our motto of “Love for all, Hatred for none”.

“We need your help to reach out to these faith-based leaders – so that they can be better prepared to serve –  before, during, or after disasters,” says Corazon Ketchum, Noah’s Ark Co-Founder & Executive Director.
