Monday, May 20, 2019

Officials of a United Kingdom-based charity organisation- Islamic Help- last Tuesday visited The Gambia with the objective to explore the country to see for themselves support they can provide to the people.

The delegation was led into the country by Sheikh Ibrahim Khalil Baye Niass, a Senegalese who is the Director of Darul Ketabi and chairman of Sa Adatul Anan International Charity in UK.  “These Islamic scholars have been to many countries helping them in different situations,” Sheikh Ibrahim Khalil Baye Niass said.

When the delegation visited Senegal, he advise them to visit The Gambia too because he believes that the two countries are one people. “I believe that whatever Senegal benefits from, The Gambia should also benefit from it,” he said.

Professor Masood Akhtar Hazarvi, Director of AL Hira Education and Cultural Center in London, United Kingdom said they have 23 institutes in the UK and working together with Imam Sheikh Ibrahim, who they have a good relationship with. “Our visit is to find out the problems in The Gambia and offer help,” he noted.

Another member of the delegation AL Sheikh Niaz ul Hassan AL Qadri, the chairman of Hazrat Sultan Bahu Trust said Gambia and Senegal are the only countries they visited in West Africa but the Islamic help is trying their best to reach many parts of the world to help them with all their possible means.
