For the sixth year in a row since the 10th anniversary of the September 11th attacks, this Islamic community has been saving lives one needle at a time.

The Ahmadiyya Muslim Community gathered at the Bethlehem Township Community Center on Sunday afternoon in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania to donate blood in the Muslims For Life Blood Drive.

Since its debut in 2011, the events have raised over 40,000 pints of blood, which have saved an estimated 100,000 people to date.

The 127-year-old organization’s message has been preaching the abolishment of violent jihadi beliefs. They hope that in donating blood, they can help show the love that they feel for America and their unity with its people.

“We all condemn the attacks and remember that day,” Asad Chaudhry, president of the Lehigh Valley chapter of the community tied The Morning Call. “[So] we want to do something more than words.”
