Al-Imran Islamic Foundation has called on Muslims and other spirited individuals to make donations into its annual Ramadan fast feeding program for the Internally Displaced Persons, IDPs, in Abuja camps.
Speaking to newsmen on Wednesday in Abuja, the founder of the organisation, Yusuf A. Yusuf, said a token of N500 could go a long way to feed a fasting IDP for Iftar and Sahur.
According to him, donations could be made through the foundation’s account number: 0003651841 domiciled in Jaiz Bank.
Mr Yusuf said: “Ramadan is a month filled with immense blessings, where every single act of kindness is rewarded.
He added: “We are using this medium to call out to our fellow Muslims for donations either in cash or kind, to help champion this righteous course as Allah (S.W.T) has enjoined on us.
“As Muslims, it is imperative for us to remember that the month of Ramadan is a month filled with immense blessings, a month where every single act of kindness is rewarded.
“Let’s build a mindset that charity is not a sacrifice but an investment.
“As we show our solidarity to our Muslim brothers and sisters in their time of peril, we pray that Allah (S.W.T) guide and protect us from any impending danger, and accept our act as an act of ibadah,” he added.
Mr Yusuf further noted that “due to the COVID-19 outbreak and lockdown last year, the Foundation was not unable to execute the feeding program but distributed food items to the displaced communities.
“In preparation for this year’s outreach we are calling on our fellow Muslim brothers and sisters in Islam for ample donations and support to help see to the effective execution of the project in line with COVID-19 rules as we strive for spiritual piety and Rahma during the holy month,” he added.
