This is part of humanity for us to assist each other.” Amir Trawally promised continued support for victims of disaster: “Today we have distributed fifty thousand and six hundred dalasi, which is a small amount. We want to do more than that, this is an incident and nobody pray for that but due to the decree of Allah the Almighty, we have to accept it.” Alhaji Ebrahima Mbowe, the deputy Amir of the Jama’at, said the Jama’at is always striving to be an example for others to follow in terms of helping humanity. “That is why we have come out with this gesture,” he added.
