Arrdo, a local organisation, on Monday distributed foodstuffs such as cooking oil, rice, sugar and other items to residents of Bakau Newtown and its environs.

Arrdo’s support was bankrolled by Muslim Aid, a UK-based Muslim charitable organisation.

Ansumana Dibba, director of the organisation, told The Point that the charity distribution was aimed at helping the needy such as orphans, sick household breadwinners and large families with little financial earnings.

In the distribution, the amount each family received was proportional to the family size.

Arrdo is a charity and development organisation aimed at eliminating poverty, empowering communities, sponsoring orphans in the school, etc.

This is the second consecutive year the organisation has been distributing foodstuffs to families during the holy month of Ramadan.

Mr Dibba said they have plans to continue with the initiative while thanking their sponsors for their continued collaboration.
