Canada’s Largest Muslim Youth Group Mobilizes to Help
Canadians During Second Wave of COVID-19

Ahmadiyya Muslim Youth Association launches the nationwide
“Neighbourhood Helper” campaign
With the rapidly growing number of COVID-19 cases in Canada, the Ahmadiyya Muslim Youth Association has
launched a nationwide initiative to help Canadians during this difficult time.
Through the “Neighbourhood Helper” campaign, Muslim youth will be offering their services to help Canadians who
need assistance with picking up groceries, filling prescriptions and providing overall moral support. Canadians who
require assistance are encouraged to call 1-855-HELP811 or sign up on www.helpingneighbours.com. Flyers will also
be distributed in cities and towns across Canada with details on how to get in touch with local teams for assistance.
“As we are faced with the second wave of COVID-19, Canadians must come together and support each other during
this difficult time,” says Mr. Zubair Afzal, National President of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Youth Association Canada.
“We have launched the Neighbourhood Helper campaign to boost the spirits of Canadians and help those who need
it most.”
The campaign launched December 1, 2020 and will run indefinitely as we monitor the second wave of COVID-19.
