Laiq Ahmed Atif president of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Jamaat Malta, visited St. Vincent de Paul Elderly Residency on 23rd May 2012 and presented gifts and food hampers to 100 most vulnerable residents – many amongst them are those to whom no one goes there to visit them.
Mr. James Carabott, Hospital’s Planning Manager and Mr. Kenneth Cremona, In-charge entertainment, accompanied Mr. Atif while meeting with the residents. Laiq Ahmed Atif admired the great services of all the workers and staff of the residency.
Ahmadiyya Muslim Jamaat pays a great importance to serving mankind and looking after the old and elderly people. This activity of the Ahmadiyya Community is a clear manifestation of its love and care for the old and elderly people of the society.
The Community believes that serving old and elderly is a way to win the pleasure of God the Almighty, and the elderly people are precious and much respected and are the integral members of the family and society. They are not a burden on the society but they are very respectful members and deserve fair and respectful treatment and services.
