With the spirit of holidays in the United States, more than 500 Ismaili volunteers, aged eight years and above, gathered at the Atlanta Northeast Jamatkhana to fight hunger and food insecurity in metro-Atlanta. The Ismaili Council for the Southeastern United States, in partnership with the Atlanta Community Food Bank (ACFB) and Feeding Children Everywhere, organized the 60 for 60: I-CERV Day of Service, with the goal of preparing 60,000 meals in commemoration of His Highness the Aga Khan’s Diamond Jubilee.
This philanthropic event has become a signature offering of diverse USA Jamats and goes a very long and effective way to demonstrate practically a key humanistic dimension of Islam and all other religions!
60,000 or 80,000 meals?
This service will surely please our Beloved Imam immensely, since this kind of service to all is the meaning of ISLAM which our Mowla is striving so hard to eliminate poverty. Quran says, if you are wealthy, just keep enough to sustain yourselves and share the rest with the less fortunate.
