LONDON FREE PRESS OP-ED: Khan: Muslim community has stepped up to help out amid virus crisis
Accompanying this surge in job loss has been an unprecedented rise in demand for meals and food packages for those most affected by the illness and its associated economic impacts. In response, the Canadian-Muslim community has stepped up.
As Ramadan has coincided with the virus crisis, it has given Muslims across Canada a rare opportunity to practically implement the spiritual and social message of the holy month. The month of individual sacrifice, charity, and uniting in purpose has strengthened the national sacrifice, care for the hungry and unemployed, and unity in combating COVID that this crisis demands.
MAC also has collaborated with local businesses and restaurants, including Tahini’s, Vals BBQ, Damascus House, and Pita Pita, to ensure maximum use of donations.
