On Sunday the 17th of April 2011, MYL Sisters (Bradford) held a fundraiser event to raise money for the victims of the disastrous Earthquake and Tsunami that hit Japan recently. The day consisted of a variety of activities, ranging from henna and face painting to bouncy castles and decorating your own cake.
Alhamdulilah the weather was beautiful and it turned out to be a very pleasant day where everyone enjoyed themselves immensely. The kids in particular were very excited running from stall to stall.
The event even managed to attract a wider, Non-Pakistani, community, which was excellent for the recognition of MYL Sisters in Bradford. Even though the fundraiser was set up in a short amount of time, the money raised reached up to £680.
The MYL Sisters team did a fabulous job in making this fun day very attractive and as entertaining as possible. A very special thanks goes out to two particular members, Ayesha Naz and Maliha Khatoon, both of whom are 11 years of age. These girls took on the major responsibility to organise this fundraiser and should be applauded for their efforts.
We hope that the money raised really helps the victims of Japan, and that Insha’Allah many homes and families are restored.
