Africa Federation Solidarity Day 2017 (1438) – Appointment of Ad-Hoc Committee



The annual Africa Federation Solidarity Day marked on 15th Sha’ban every year will this year fall on Friday 12th May 2017.

The Solidarity Day activities within our constituent member Jamaats in Africa will Inshaállah start from 1st to 25th Sha’ban 1438 (28th April to 22nd May 2017).

We request all Jamaats and the Territorial Councils in Africa to organize special events like Charity Walk, Fun Fare, Bake Sale, Sports and other activities involving the Madressahs boys and girls sections to raise funds for this special occasion. This great event would also provide an opportunity to bring together our community members from different age groups on a common platform under one banner of Solidarity to celebrate the auspicious occasion of the birth anniversary of our 12th Imam, Al Hujjah Al Mahdi (ATFS).

Ladies of our community have always played important roles in the Solidarity Day programs and events, we request our member Jamaats to involve the ladies fully and to join hands and coordinate in organizing ladies programs and events for Solidarity Day and fund-raising for the noble cause.

Funds raised for this occasion are utilized throughout the year for the needy and deserving members of our community in areas such as education, medical, and other emergency relief requirements.

We are pleased to appoint the Solidarity Day Ad-Hoc Committee to spearhead the AFED Solidarity Day 2017 (1438) and to coordinate with the Jamaats in organizing various activities and fund raising events. We request our Jamaats to appoint two youth members from each Jamaat to work in collaboration with the following Ad-Hoc Committee:
