Peterborough humanitarian event

Peterborough Humanitarian Event

Mohammed Ravji, Paramedic from Peterborough ambulance station, recently attended an event at the Hussaini Islamic Centre on Burton Street in Peterborough, to inspire young people to help in their local communities. 

This centre is attended by approximately 120 infants on Saturdays for Madressa, or 'Saturday School', to learn the teachings and values of Islam. 

An event was designed to inspire the youngsters, through celebrating humanitarian services in the local community. This was in honour of Lady Fatemah, who was the daughter of Prophet Mohammed and whose selfless character, in helping others, mirrored the Islamic values.

Professionals, who serve our local community, were approached and invited to come along and show the youngsters what they do on a day to day basis, including Mohammed, who attended with an ambulance. As well as representation from the ambulance service, the event was also attended by the fire service, doctors, an optometrist and local charities; the Hussaini Soup Kitchen and Lady Zahra Helping hands.

The young people were split up into groups and took it in turns to rotate around the different areas, to learn about the different professions and how they serve and contribute in the local community. They were very inspired and thoroughly enjoyed the event!

The Hussaini Islamic Centre were appreciative and thankful to EEAST for supporting the event.
