Fourteenth Moon Foundation has distributed food items to Muslim teachers in Lagos State during the ongoing Ramadan.
The exercise, held recently, saw about 33 teachers benefitting from the distribution of rice, garri, semolina, ovatine, milk and sugar.
Among the schools whose teachers benefitted from the exercise are MIMS Nursery and Primary School, An-Nur Nursery and Primary school, MIMS Comprehensive College, Anuoluwapo Nursery and Primary, Virile Kids and Epitome Nursery and Primary School.
According to the Director of the Foundation, Alhaji Qasim Badrudeen, the food items were sponsored by Jaiz Charity and Development Foundation.
Alhaji Badrudeen explained that the distribution is to assist the teachers, who have been affected by COVID-19 and the harsh economic situation in Nigeria.
The Director, however, appealed to beneficiaries to make judicious use of the food items given to them.
He also commended Jaiz Foundation for partnering with Fourteenth Moon, urging more organisations to do the same.
Alhaji Badrudeen said, “Today, we have been able to give food items to private schools’ Muslim teachers with the support of the Jaiz Foundation. You can see that the joy on their faces. A lot of Muslims need to be supported but we have very limited resources.
“This distribution is the first phase for this Ramadan. We intend to still share more things. I appeal to well-meaning Nigerians to tap from the reward of feeding fasting Muslims. It is a very beneficial project in the sight of Allah.”
The elated beneficiaries expressed delight at the food and prayed for the donors.
