Young Ahmadi Muslims from the Ahmadiyya Muslim Youth Association (AMYA) will be visiting care homes and hospices, as well as providing a free taxi service to the elderly on Christmas Day.
AMYA’s members hope to carry out more than 2,000 visits to spend some time with people who might otherwise be on their own, the organisation said.
They will also visit homeless shelters where they will prepare warm meals and gift bags.
One of AMYA’s initiatives will see 50 members in Yorkshire offering a taxi services to more than 100 elderly members of the local community, to take them to YMCA centres.
Members will “serve them, sit with them, pack them a meal for Christmas Day, then take them home,” the organisation said.
AMYA said it was hoping to beat last year’s record of feeding over 1,600 people, donating 336kg of food and 100kg of clothing and visiting 1,500 isolated adults.
