The Ghana branch of the King Mohammed VI Foundation of African Oulama (Islamic scholars) has donated food items (dubbed Iftar packages) to needy Muslim communities in and around Kanda (in Accra) over the weekend.
Over hundred residents benefited from the items which included rice, cooking oil, sugar, milk, tea and tomato paste. The notion behind the kind gesture is to alleviate difficulties in Ramadan and support needy Muslims living within the neighbourhood of the foundation’s local office throughout the fasting period.
The President of the Ghana branch of the foundation, Shiekh Mustapha Ibrahim, revealed that the donation was part of the Foundation’s CSR policy to support Muslims in Ghana every Ramadan starting with their host community of Rugga (Kanda). He also appealed to the residents to accept the package in good faith; hoping that the foundation would offer extended packages next Ramadan. Sheikh Mustapha used the opportunity to advise Muslims to adhere to social distancing protocols, maintain regular hand-washing with soap under running water. He also called on Ghanaian Muslims to be prayerful whilst observing other measures to mitigate the spread of the pandemic and expressed hope that it will soon disappear “by the grace of God”.
Beneficiaries of the ‘sadaqqa’ expressed their profound gratitude to the Foundation and prayed for Allah’s protection and mercy to the entire strategic Apex and rank and file of the organization.
