Fawzy Kersha, representative of Life for Relief, delivered dozens of First Aid kits for our young people who participate and are enrolled in the Saturday Youth Class. Imam Khalil would like to have a CPR overview on Saturday, October 13, 2012, between 10am and 2pm for the young people. All those who attend and participate will receive this great gift: A Home First Aid Kit! We would like to enroll the youth in a CPR class in the near future, Inshallah, and will give notice when that class is scheduled.
