“Muslims for Remembrance Day” Campaign to raise funds for Canadian veterans

MEMBERS of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community will pause across Canada to reflect on the sacrifices of our service members who have given their lives for Canada. With the recent attacks on our soldiers on Canadian soil, this year’s Remembrance Day takes on an even deeper meaning, they say.

The Ahmadiyya Muslim Community Canada says it is proud to launch its 4th Annual Muslims for Remembrance Day campaign. This nationwide campaign was started in 2011 to remember and show their support for the sacrifices of our armed forces.  The Ahmadiyya Muslim Community Canada will once again show its support for our troops and veterans that have died for this country and those who are protecting today.

This year, the Muslims for Remembrance Day will be celebrated on November 7 in nine cities across Canada. Donations will be collected and poppies handed out at all Ahmadiyya Muslim mosques and prayer centres after the Islamic Friday Prayer (in Vancouver at Baitur Rahman, 9570 River Road, Delta, at 1:30 p.m.) All collections will be donated to the Royal Canadian Legion.
