The Senegambia Democracy and Governance Organization (SENDGO) has provided support to over 100 families under its EID AL ADHA project 1441-2020 during the last Tobaski.
The charitable organization, which was registered in The Gambia, is financially supported by Emirates Red Crescent of United Arab Emirates (UAE).
The organisation also gets support from reputable and renowned Muslims in UAE, in the persons of Dr Ahmed Al Giashi, Muhammed Al Hasihmi, Khluood Al Kaabi and Yusra AL Jaberi.
Tuku Jallow is the philanthropist who founded the organisation and its interventions cover countrywide targeting needy communities who cannot afford to buy Tobaski rams.
“We have provided meat to at least 120 households during the last Eid prayers and in the process provided meat to more than 100 poor and needy Muslims and 8 masjids,” Jallow said.
The beneficiary masjids included Brikama, Busumbala, Tabokoto, Tallinding Koloban, Bakau, Banjul, Manjai, Bijilo, Aljamdou and Kuntaur.
“This is just one out of the many projects we expect. I am looking forward to receiving more support from Emirates Red Crescent. I appeal to the Imams of the supported masjids to pray for the key staff at Red Crescent in UAE for the support they rendered to Gambian Muslims,” she said.
Jallow said due to Covid-19 many Muslims around the global and The Gambia in particular had found it difficult to buy Tobaski rams for themselves.
She said Imams of the various villages and Masjids they visited appealed for the organisation to continue providing such support to Gambian Muslims especially during feast celebrations.
Jallow on behalf of her organisation expressed gratitude to Emirates Red Crescent for the magnificent support provided to Gambian Muslims.
She returned gratitude to the management of her organisation and encouraged them to continue serving humanity to the best of their ability.
“I am looking forward to implementing more projects with all of you in the future,” she added.
All the beneficiaries expressed gratitude to the organisation and called on other philanthropists to come to the aid of needy Gambians.
