Infected Countries and areas are in dire need of medical help and protective Masks to stay safe from the virus. Japan has also been facing shortage of protective masks for the past few weeks and sales of protective masks have been stopped in most places due to non-availability.
Coming to the rescue and shouldering the responsibility to help fellow humans, Women of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community in Japan are preparing handmade masks for the people living in areas infected with the Corona virus. These masks are being sent to China by Ahmadiyya Muslim Association Japan.
Ahmaddiya Muslim Association Japan has announced through its website and Facebook page that elderly people who are most vulnerable to this disease can contact Masjid Bait al-Ahad Japan and get a mask.
On February 23, 2020, the mosque Bait-ul-Ahad, Japan held a special prayer congregation for the protection from the Corona virus in Japan. On this occasion, handmade protective masks were exhibited by Ahmaddiya Muslim women.
On seeing this exhibition, some Japanese women also participated in this noble cause by preparing masks and delivered to the mosque Bait-ul-Ahad Japan.
By the grace of Allah Almighty Japan`s 3 television channels telecasted this news all over Japan.
So far, around 500 hand-made masks have been sent to the affected areas of China.
Requesting prayer that Allah, the Almighty, bestow His Grace and mercy on those who suffer from this deadly epidemic. And may Almighty give doctors and scientists the vision and intellect they need to find out the remedy and treatment of humans infected from this virus sooner.
