As part of efforts to put smiles on the faces of orphans and the less privileged living in Jiwa community, Abuja Municipal Area Council (AMAC), during the Ramadan, Jiwa Community and Orphanage Home (JCOH), a non- governmental organisation has donated foodstuffs and clothing worth thousands of Naira to orphans and the less privileged in the area. Items donated include rice, brocades, and hijabs among others.
Chairman of the organisation, Alhaji Mohmud Ibrahim while speaking at a brief ceremony held last Sunday in the community, said the organisation would continue to assist orphans through the payment of school fees, health bills and in setting up small businesses.
A statement signed by JCOH vice chairman, Ibrahim Haruna and made available to LEADERSHIP said the organisation’s objective is to donate and carter for the less privileged and contribute their quota for the upliftment of the poor in the community.
The statement disclosed that the chairman used the opportunity to appeal to well meaning individuals in the community to support JCOH to fulfill her mandate of assisting orphans in the community.
Earlier, the representative of the chairman of AMAC, Alhaji Abdullah Adamu and his Personal Assistant, Mallam Saidu Ibrahim Jiwa commended the JCOH for the gesture and urged them to maintain the tempo as this is the only way the children of the less privileged would have a good upbringing.
Adamu further appealed to the people to support the less privileged as this will drastically reduces social vices in the community and create social harmony among the people.
In his remarks, the Emir of Jiwa, Alhaji Idris Musa, represented by the Baraden Jiwa, Alhaji Isah Mai Gold congratulated the organisation for the donations and thanked them for bringing relief to the orphans and the less privileged in his emirate council and prayed that God rewards them abundantly.
