Did you know? 

Nearly 1.2 million Canadian kids don’t have a good winter coat, and Toronto children are the poorest in the nation. And that’s not counting all the parents, who are even more likely to go cold, as they will often  give to their children, before themselves.

Toronto alone has over five thousand homeless individuals. While most reside in shelters, hundreds live on the street, their lives continuously threatened by our frigid winters with freezing temperatures on more than 100 days from October to April.

Let’s help.

Dhul Hijjah Food Challenge Final Results!

Ma sha’ Allah, by His grace Al Huda was able to collect 4.5 thousand food items during this 3rd #DhulHijjahFC, a whopping increase of 62% from last year! Jazakum Allahu khayran, everyone, for caring so much and helping our hungry neighbours.

Congratulations to the Outreach Venues who seriously led this event. Being first-time participants did not deter them from winning the Challenge, with Etobicoke in 3rd place, Milton in 2nd place, andScarborough ranking 1st across the organization, ma sha’ Allah!

A special thank you to the Challenge Leads, who led their classes throughout the DHFC, and worked with the Serving Humanity team to log in their results.

Together as a team of Al Huda staff and onsite and online students, we have set the bar high for ourselves, so let us use this as an opportunity to make a habit of helping the vulnerable, and increasing our ranks in the sight of Al-Karim, the Generous.
