While presenting the materials to the Sarkin Kasuwan Magani, Ibrahim Abdullahi, the chairman of NASFAT Kaduna Branch, Muhydeen Yusuf said the donation is part of the social impact programme of the society, by reaching out to the people especially in difficult period.
Yusuf said the visit was not only to donate the relief materials but also identify with people of the community over their travails.
”NASFAT as a society, is mainly concerned with charity, helping the needy, especially at a trying time, when they are in need of essential materials like the ones we brought here today. This is to show brotherhood. We believe that the materials will go a long way to help them recover from some of their losses,” Yusuf said.
The NASFAT chairman called on people of the community to be more committed to oneness, unity and love, so as to end the recurring communal violence in the area.
Also, Hajia Kudirat Akande, an official of the organisation, said the wrappers were contributed women members of the society.
Akande, who is the secretary of women wing of the group said, “we are concerned with what happened to the people, especially the women and that is why it becomes necessary for us, the women to donate from our little resources to help women victims of the crisis”.
