Imam Luqman Ahmed of the Baitul Naseer Mosque in Cumberland said fundraising Iftar dinners are being held across Canada with the goal of raising $50,000 for Humanity First, a Toronto-based charity providing emergency relief and medical assistance to refugees at the Polish-Ukrainian border. So far, about one-quarter of that amount has been raised.
“Appeals have been made to members of the Ahmadiyya Muslim community throughout the country,” Ahmed said. “This year, because of the crisis in Ukraine, the worldwide head of the Ahmadiyya Muslim community has urged the members to not only pray for world peace, but to also come forward with help for the people being displaced by the war.”
