The Muslim Support Network (MSN) is planning to expands its services for the seniors from the beginning of 2012. This was announced by Zeby Mohsin, Vice President of the MSN, at its monthly gathering on Monday at the Senior Citizens Center, Fremont, CA.

Till now the MSN has been arranging monthly luncheon gathering for seniors but with 2012 the MSN will arrange two luncheon gatherings to provide opportunity to the Muslim seniors to come out from their homes for socializing.

According to the MSN event schedule distributed at Monday’s luncheon, the MSN will hold at least 18 luncheons and one field trip, one picnic, and Eid dinner.

The MSN Outreach Secretary, Abdul Razzak Adenwala, said that in order to fulfill its mission the MSN is trying to extend its program for the seniors despite its financial limitations. He said the MSN events are not only limited to socializing but also provide education and information related to matters concerning the seniors.

Zeby Mohsin explained that the MSM has partnered with the City of Fremont’s Human Services Department (HSD) to create informative and socializing programs. She said the MSN held two workshops on diabetes. Zeby also thanked the Islamic Society of East Bay (ISEB) Chairman Mushtaq Ahmed for providing ISEB premises to hold the diabetes workshop conducted by Rajinder Singh, a diabetes educator.
