Wellington Muslims Ready to Host Refugees

The Muslims of Wellington have applauded the government’s decision to increase the refugee  intake  at this time of humanitarian crisis.  The International Muslim Association of New Zealand(IMAN), representing the Muslims in this region,  have put the entire resources of the community  to help any refugee family coming to this region.  “ This is a crisis in which every one of us have to open our doors and welcome the refugees.  We  can offer practical help on many fronts and I am sure when the time comes we can sit with the authorities to find the best solutions” said Mr Tahir Nawaz , President of the Association. “ Specifically, they will need every thing from warm clothing to furniture and food in the short term  and in the longer term  access to education  and other services.  In this respect , we will try our utmost to make a difference with our community resources.”. “ On Monday 7 September, we signed a cooperation agreement with the Salvation Army “, said Mr Nawaz, “ as part of our focus on working with those who need help in our hometown”.  On Saturday, 12 September, the Wellington Masjid will throw its door open  for the wider community . There will be  food, cultural events  and displays  from 10am in the morning.
