November 20th, 2020 – (London, UK – Los Angeles, USA) M.T.O. Shahmaghsoudi® School of
Islamic Sufism® celebrates World Children’s Day through a global day of action and charity in
over 40 cities across Asia Pacific, Europe and North America. The occasion is an opportunity to
give back to the next generation.
As part of this global event, M.T.O. volunteers will be donating PPEs, nonperishable food and
necessities to homeless students, schools, foster homes, hospitals and other organizations that
provide services to children across the world. “There is nothing more important than investing in
the present and future of children, especially those who have been left behind as a result of various social shortcomings. It truly takes a village to raise a child. So, as Sufis, we have come together today to take a small step for the next generation that has to deal with so many ongoing problems in our world including rebuilding what has been destroyed socially and economically by the current pandemic.” (Maziar Saleh – MTO Albuquerque Volunteer)
While the M.T.O. Covid19 Response initially began by reaching out to frontline heroes, M.T.O.
Shahmaghsoudi® has not forgotten the tremendous impact this pandemic continues to have on the wellbeing of children across the world. World Children’s Day is yet another opportunity to
celebrate children and young adults as they try to navigate these uncertain times.
Since the start of the COVID19 pandemic, the M.T.O. Covid19 Response has seen volunteers from
across the world engage in a range of programs including making and delivering thousands of
personal protective equipment products for healthcare and senior center frontline professionals.
These efforts have also included large-scale food drives for homeless and low-income families as
well as providing face coverings and school supplies for children. Furthermore, M.T.O. has been
offering free daily Tamarkoz® meditation and relaxation Instagram Live sessions to help people
around the globe cope with the current crisis.
