The President of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community of Malta, Laiq Ahmed Atif, presented foodstuffs and fruit to Fr Martin Micallef, director of Id-Dar tal-Providenza in Siggiewi. Mr Atif said that it was indeed a pleasure for him and his community to be able to help, serve and feel part of all that the Home means and provides to its residents. He believes in human dignity and that no person should be emarginated in any way whatsoever.
Mr Atif reiterated that persons with disability have nothing less than anybody else. They are persons that deserve every respect and dignity. He stressed that it is important that we focus more on the “ability” rather than on the “disability” so that everyone has the opportunity to express his ability.
On behalf of the residents, Fr Martin thanked the President of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community of Malta for his generous presentation of fruit and foodstuffs and highlighted that this was not the first occasion that Mr Atif showed his solidarity and that of the Ahmadiyya Community with Id-Dar tal-Providenza.
The Ahmadiyya Muslim Community is always ready to help those in need, irrespective of their faith, colour and race.
