Foundation donates packages to 50 families in Lagos
During the distribution, representatives of the families pick a live chicken and 2.5kg rice each.
Founder of the FMF, Qasim Badrudeen, said the distribution was done in a bid to assist the beneficiaries during this trying period.
He explained that the coronavirus lockdown made things difficult for many families, including feeding.
According to him, well-meaning Nigerians donated the packages distributed.
He said, “With the lockdown in Lagos and other places, many Muslims’ incomes were affected. This year, we were able to reach about 50 families and we hope to reach more families in subsequent editions.
“It is our joy that we were able to put smiles on the faces of people. We appreciate the donors and pray to Allah to continue to enrich their pockets,” he said.
Badrudeen noted that the foundation is also planning to distribute meats during the Eid-el-Adha (ileya) celebration.
“This will Insha Allah not affect our yearly ‘Eat the Ram” programme during Ileya. We appeal for support and hope to also put smiles on the faces of people during the festival,” he added.
The beneficiaries, however, appreciated the gesture, praying for both the organisation and donors.
