http://thehillsshire.wordpress.com/2012/02/24/hills-muslims-give-helping-hand-to-the-wider-australian-community/Muslims from the Hills have been busy giving a helping hand to the wider Australian Community. Following on the example of the well-established The Exodus Foundation in Ashfield and under the guidance of the Al-Ghazzali Centre based in Lakemba who collaborate with The Exodus Foundation for their monthly feed the homeless program, Hills residents from the Hills District Muslim Society have been actively participating in the program over the last few years to cook and serve food to the less fortunate.

This year has seen a surge in the participation of Muslims from the Hills and last month seven members including parents Scott and Vida Wilson and their daughter Alyssa Wilson together with Tarek Shokry and his son Haytham Shokry lent a much needed helping hand preparing the meals in the Ashfield kitchen.

There is a growing interest among the Hills Muslims to give back to the Australian community and these types of programs serve one such avenue for them to actively participate in. This month’s program is scheduled for Saturday the 27th of February and again six volunteers from the Hills are ready to serve.

The Hills District Muslim Society and its members are also actively looking at joining such programs closer to home and are currently organizing Bush Care programs with the local Councils in the Hills.
