In his remarks at the KMC grounds, Alhajie Ebrima Mbowe on behalf the Ahmadiyya Muslim Jama’at in The Gambia said: “It is part of The Gambia’s 50 years of nationhood. We reached out to disaster victims and needy families with food items. When The Gambia got her independence, Ahmadiyya Muslim Jama’at led the prayers and we will continue to pray for the peace and development for this country and we also stand by that principle. We are giving out of food items to 30 families in KMC as part of our mandate services to the mankind which is part of faith.
On his part, the mayor of Kanifing Municipal Council, Yankuba Colley, while receiving the items said: “The needy ones are the people that were involved in unfortunate situations and we believe to feed them is a problem. They are the very ones we selected as a team to come and join us. I take this opportunity to thank the Ahmadiyya Muslim Jama’at. We are very much grateful to the Almighty Allah to have you present these items to the victims. They lost all what they have invested in their life time.”
He added that one of the teachings of the prophet was that a good Muslim should be caring and sharing at all times. “I think today we are receiving one from the Jama’at. You may take it to be small or little but this is definitely big in my eyes and eyes of the municipality. I must seize this opportunity to put down my respect to you people. From the bottom of my heart, I salute you and extend my sincere greetings to the Amir and Jama’at.
From Kanifing, the jama’at proceeded to Banjul where it distributed no fewer than 20 bags of rice, 6 bags of sugar, 10 bags of onion and 20 drums of 5 litre cooking oil to needy Gambians.
Receiving the items, the mayor of Banjul, Mr Abdoulie Bah, expressed delight at the gesture which he said, will go a long way in improving the lives of the needy.
“Twenty needy families today will benefit from this donation in Banjul. Sharing and caring among mankind in society is important” he said.]]>
