Khidmat-e-Khalq (Social Services) Department


 

To provide maximum service to the poor, helpless and needy without any discrimination of race, religion or nationality. Khidmat-e-Khalq, or the social services department, is focused on internally helping one another in the Ahmadiyya Community, as well as external outreach to the surrounding communities. This is achieved through prayers, community service, donations, volunteer work and advocacy. Khidmat-e-Khalq, or social welfare, is an integral part of our worship. 

What's New In Khidmat-e-Khalq


On April 23rd, 2020, we embarked upon the Make a Mask initiative. Our goal was to organize as Lajna members and work together collectively to mass produce masks as a team.  We would then distribute those masks to our community and throughout our country as Ahmadis. 

 We partnered with Humanity First to identify singular cities to donate one half of the handmade masks.   The intent behind this effort was to have a concentrated impact of generativity and generosity infused into a community that was hard hit by the corona virus, Covid-19.

On June 13th, 2020, National Sadr Lajna, Dhiya Bakr Sahiba, along with sister Samina Noor, National Handicraft Secretary and members of Humanity First, visited one such city, Chicago, Illinois.  Thousands of face coverings/masks that you pain- stakingly and loving stitched together, before Ramadhan, during Ramadhan and beyond Ramadhan were donated to the Chicago area at large.  Representatives from various organizations came out to pick up masks for their needy populations.  Alhamdulillah!

To date, about twenty women of the Ahmadiyya Muslim community have made 1,226 masks and 37 surgical caps so far. We have donated to the homeless, farmers, neighbors, teachers and doctors in need of protective gear on behalf of Humanity First, a non-profit organization (usa.humanityfirst.org). Baskets were installed in front of homes giving away free masks to neighbors. The response has been of boundless gratitude and the ladies got something too: the satisfaction of giving help to others in times of need that aligns seamlessly with our core values of Islam.
