UK: Young children of Muslim Shia Ithna-Asheri Madressa of Essex raise money for hospice

In the month of Muharram, MSI Jamaat of Essex conducted various projects to inform general population to inform them about the sacrifice of Imam Hussain (AS). SI Madressa of Essex students could not stay behind and took great steps to help such efforts. 

They joined hands to support local St Clare Hospice, Hastingwood, Essex. Firstly, they raised £1,000 to help terminally ill patients' care at the hospice. Then a selection of them dedicated a day to the hospice, when the visited hospice and volunteered on Hospice's 'Winter walkies' day. This effort went a long way in making students realise about suffering of people, familiarising general population with the name of Imam Hussain (AS) and creating relationship with a notable charity and general population.

Hospice Fund-raising Manager Anna Baldwin wrote to madressa students:

'Thank you both for helping at the winter walkies event at the weekend and for generous donation of £1,000. We really appreciate that you gave up part of your weekend to help make our event a success and I hope that you managed to cope with all the mud and had fun! As you can imagine that being a charity we rely on volunteers like yourselves to keep our work going. So thank you for being a part of it. The services we provide to our patients are also costly, so we welcome the money you donated which will go towards helping our patients and their families. Thank you once again.'
