For the first time in the history of Senegal’s religion injunction, young Christians distributed Ramadan Iftar to their fellow Muslim brothers and sisters as an act of pure nobility.

The event was held on Wednesday at the Zone of Liberte 6, Dieuppeul going as far as Sacre-Coeur to support and show love during this Ramadan period. 

After preparing very large quantities of sandwiches, coffee and refreshment, members organized themselves into teams to take the streets of Dakar around the time of the break to distribute the trays.
