Among the donated food items are 100 bags of rice, 10 bags of sugar, 10 bags of onion, 10 gallons of cooking oil and dates.
At the distribution ceremony held at Mandinary Village, Oustass Abubacar Saidy of the Majalis explained that the donation is part of their charity that they distribute to Muslims every Holy Month of Ramadan.
“The coronavirus disease has suffered many families and that is why our partners came to support. This is extended to the underprivileged households within the satellite villages of Wellingara, Mandinary and Kerewan.”
He thanked the donors for supporting Muslims, while urging wealthy individuals to also support Muslims during the month of Ramadan.
Matida Sirra, a beneficiary from Mandinary said the donation is a great gesture and it will help them a long way in providing some of their needs during the Ramadan and coronavirus lockdown.
“We have been given rice, sugar, oil, tea and dates. This will help sustain my children and me for some while.”
