We were Back!! This time it was for the Children....
Assalaahmu'alaykum brothers, sisters and friends.
'Walk with Me' - united with Francis House - to care for Our Children...
Myriad Foundation teamed up with Francis House to support them in bringing sunshine to the lives of terminally ill children. On Saturday 1st August (2015) our hugely magnificent volunteers made their way up to the summit of Mount Snowdon in Wales in support of Francis House; by doing so, we alhamdulillah raised just over £10,000 for this cause!
We often Talk the Talk, but it was time to Walk the Walk. 'Walk with Me'... for the children.
Why was the Myriad Foundation so excited to be involved with Francis House?
Well, our beloved Prophet Muhammad (May peace and blessings be upon him) was very fond of children. He would often play with and kiss his grandchildren and would constantly remind his companions of their duty towards children in general, not just their own, and to display mercy and compassion towards them.
In one narration, Allah’s Messenger kissed Al-Hasan ibn `Ali while Al-Aqra` ibn Habis At-Tamim was sitting with him . Al-Aqra` said, “I have ten children and have never kissed one of them.” The Prophet cast a look at him and said, “Whoever is not merciful to others will not be treated mercifully.” (Al-Bukhari).
We at The Myriad Foundation believe that lending a helping hand doesn't come with conditions; it is not bound by race, religion and in this case, age. Putting a smile on the faces of those who are sometimes overlooked by society is one of the driving forces that motivate us. Furthermore, following the achievement of our trekkers in 2013 we thought we couldn't reach even half of the amazing amount we raised, however how wrong we were as we raised just over £10,000 as a team, the Myriad Foundation become bigger and better, all for the sake of helping humanity!
