Members of the Ahmadiyya Muslim community in Glasgow are continuing to help vulnerable members their local communities and support frontline workers.

So far, they have supplied over 500 hot meals to the homeless in Glasgow, supplied more than 50 households with food and medicine, delivered around 1500 food items to 10 foodbanks across Scotland and launched their pray for heroes campaign to express gratitude for frontline workers.
