Tickets sold out, and we reached 20% of fundraising goal!
Thank you for having joined us for a beautiful evening with Imam Yasin Dwyer, Ustadh Amjad Tarsin and Shaykh Faraz Rabbani
Anatolian Heritage Federation, 335 Michael Cowpland Drive, Ottawa K2M 2C5
Our goal: $200,000 in order to provide counselling, chaplaincy services, and youth programming. Funds raised will go toward:
– salaries of three full-time staff: a counsellor, a social worker, and a program manager
– yearly utility and operations costs of the Lotus
Zakat is for individuals teaching the Deen and providing services to the community for free. When you give Zakat to this cause, we make sure these funds go directly to the professionals providing free services to our community, something they could not do if they had to take other jobs in order to pay their food and rent.
The services our social worker, counsellor and program manager provide include:
1) being available all day for those who call or visit with urgent needs
2) mental health support and counselling
3) marital and family counselling
4) programs for at-risk teenagers to keep them off the streets and away from harm (gangs, drugs, alcohol, crime)
We thank you for your support. Please consider donating towards the remainder of our fundraising goal.
