Unity Foundation for Islam and Humanitarian Purpose recently organised Iftarr, food for breaking of the fast, to Muslims at the Supreme Islamic Council hall in Kanifing.

The beneficiaries from within the Greater Banjul Area also had the opportunity to listen to Islamic teachings delivered by various prominent scholars.

Abdoulie Njie, president of Unity Foundation, said they are a young organisation established last year.

He said the purpose of the event was to gather young people for them to learn the best practices of Islam as well as to give food to people to break their fast.

Mr Njie said although the organisation is striving hard, it is faced with some constraints making it difficult to implement all their programmes.

“As part of our challenges is lack of support in terms of funding. We contribute from our own pockets to be able to implement our activities,” he lamented while appealing to people to come on board and help in funding the foundation.

The president of Unity Foundation said the income they generate is used to help hospitalised patients that are less privileged.

In a similar development, WAA Banjul Foundation on Saturday also organised Iftarr at the Banjul garage for travellers and pedestrians in Banjul
