Muslim Youth Laboring on Labor Day to Help Flood Victims
Young men converge in Houston to help those hit hardest by Hurricane Harvey

Ahmadiyya Muslim Youth Association (AMYA), the young men’s organization of Ahmadiyya Muslim Community USA, continues to be at the forefront of helping victims in Houston since Hurricane Harvey first made landfall last week. Hundreds of members of AMYA have been through Houston to actively help with relief and recovery efforts. On Labor Day, as the nation commemorates the contribution of workers by taking the day off, youth members of AMYA will continue its recovery efforts in neighborhoods hit hardest by Hurricane Harvey.

To achieve maximum productivity, AMYA will continue to partner with Humanity First - an international disaster relief NGO created by the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community.  Together, volunteers are focusing on providing supplies and home recovery services to neighborhoods ravaged by floods who have not yet received any aid.  

“It has been such a moving experience for the young members of our association,” said Dr. Bilal Rana, National President of AMYA. “They have seen first-hand the importance of helping others in their time of need. The emotional responses from families who are shocked to see our volunteers knock on their door with dust masks and tools in hand has touched them deeply and reinvigorated our desire to help more people. This is the spirit we seek to instill in our youth.”

AMYA leaders and volunteers are available for interview.
