On February 18 we witnessed a community event focusing on our youth.
The goals were to have our youth understand the life of a refugee child, promote the act of charity by creating a gift bag and bringing attention to the catastrophic situation of Rohingya refugees.
This was followed by an energetic, enthusiastic, and efficient gift packaging event. After pizza and snacks we concluded with Asr salah.
My future vision and hope is to eventually start a yearly mission trip that involves our youth (somewhere closer to the US) with the involvement of CMMA, Med global and IMANA. A collaborative effort god willing.
“A week of service, education and some family fun”.
On behalf of the CMMA board, I sincerely thank all those who attended the event and also those who sent their wishes.
