Thank you all for making an IMPACT!

We would like to congratulate all of our volunteers across the AlMaghrib World for genuinely showing the needy in their communities how much we care for our collective welfare. The feedback was amazing, we really did make an IMPACT together!

CTV Windsor had this to report:

There was so much great work done across the cities, it’s difficult to collate it all here whether it was the awesome team in Calgary, or the guys in Dublin, Ireland with an excellent log of their work, then the team in Charlotte (with an internal men and women competition!), or the team in California. Toronto were competing with the other Canadian cities for who could make the biggest impact, Melbourne showed their experience, and what about Minnesota? Amazing feedback in Qabeelat Madinatayn – but they had serious competition from London, and then their neighbours in Bristol and then thousands of miles away in Kuala Lumpur as usual! There’s just so much to report back but see the full array of videos and photos on the AlMaghrib Impact Facebook Page.

Here is a small selection of photos to boost your Iman levels, alhamdulillah!

 Choosing a park in London, UK was an excellent idea for Qabeelat Shams where they gave out not just food but clothes, shows, toys, and much more! Make sure you click on the links above to see more…

Few do local community work as good as our Melbourne team. True champions, and so cool too!

Statement concerning Canadian Senate “Countering the Terrorist Threat in Canada: An Interim Report”

As a Canadian institution pro-actively working with North American national security officials since 2008 to counter extremism, promote pluralistic values and empower women, AlMaghrib Institute congratulates the Senate’s Standing Committee on National Security and Defense for its contribution to safeguarding the Canadian people’s safety and values.

Unfortunately as part of its Interim Report on Countering the Terrorist Threat in Canada, the committee published some inaccurate information on AlMaghrib Institute.
