Sisters from the Muslim Youth League Halifax team have been working hard to raise as much money as possible for MWF over the years. On Tuesday 28th September 2010 some of the MYL Halifax sisters set out onto the streets of Halifax to raise money for the victims of the Pakistan floods. Over £200 for Minhaj Welfare Foundation was raised in less than 2 hours!
On 6th of November 2010 five MYL sisters from Halifax took part in a MWF charity skydive in order to raise money for the victims of the Pakistan floods. Over £400 was raised by each of the sisters. Altogether the sisters raised over £2000 for the victims of the Pakistan floods through various fundraising activities.
MYL-S member, Safyah Akhtar raised £855 from friends and family when she gave up eating chocolate and drinking tea for 1 month! To today’s date, she has raised a total of £2465 and has trekked up both Mount Kilimanjaro in Africa and Mount Snowdon in Wales for charity. All the money raised went to Minhaj Welfare Foundation.
The MYL-S Halifax team saw that these initiatives are a great way to generate new interest in MYLUK activities.
Well done to all involved for your hard work and efforts from MYLUK-S!
