In response to the need created by insurgency in Nigeria and consistent with Islamic teachings of doing charitable acts in the holy month of Ramadan, Mother of the nation, H.E. Haj Aisha Muhammadu Buhari has sent food items to vulnerable and needy persons in Kebbi state.
The distribution targets internally displaced persons, handicapped, orphans and needy women in particular. It is a nation wide program that has already taken taken place in Bauchi, Sokoto, Borno, Yobe and will be performed in all other states particularly those with large numbers of internally displaced and indigent persons. The flag off in Birnin Kebbi today saw 112 groups of 10 people each receive rice, sugar, spaghetti, and salt. The program has served as a way for HE to connect with the masses and show she is thinking about them at a time the nation passes through economic constraints.
Also present to receive food items as well as their sallah clothing were 210 boys and girls of the Orphans and Huffaz foundation whose education and upkeep is sponsored and monitored by Dr Zainab Bagudu wife of the Kebbi state Governor.
