In yet another show of his philanthropist gesture, businessman Momodou Turo Darboe, who also doubles as Chief Executive of Vision Development Foundation, distributes 350 bags of sugar to those Muslims in need in respect to the observance of the holy month of Ramadan.

The beneficiaries that come from across the country is part of Darboe's annual Ramadan gift to those who cannot afford it as prescribed in the Holy Quran, for those who can afford it give a helping hand to those who cannot.

An ardent Muslim himself, Momodou Turo Darboe told the Point that he believes in the culture of sharing his wealth with the poor and the needy just as his late father used to do.

It could be recalled that last year alone, Chief Executive Darboe gave out 14 bulls during the celebrations of the "Night of Power" and 225 ram during the "Tobaski" feast, all to the needy people in society.
