Freedom Development Foundation Donate Food Items To Families In Basse

By Binta Senghore

As Muslims around the world celebrate Laylatul Qadr ( Night of Power) on Wednesday, Freedom Development Foundation (FDF) have distributed food items to families in the Basse Administrative Area.

The items include rice, onions cooking oil.
Speaking at the presentation ceremony,
Imam Gibril Manneh of Basse Manneh Kunda, welcomed the initiative and said giving charity to the needy is important as it’s one of the five pillars of Islam.

While praying for the continuous success of the organisation, Imam Manneh thanked them for their support towards his community and called on other philanthropists to follow suit.

Lamin Suso, executive Secretary of FDF said the organisation was formed by Nuha Jabbi and his partner Bilal in the UK. He said they later expanded to The Gambia to help the needy and eradicate poverty in the provinces.

“Since its inception, we have done a series of donations to the community of Basse and its surroundings and would like to expand the help and support to the needy throughout the country in future,” he said.

One of the beneficiaries, Jainaba Manneh, thanked FDF members for the donation.

She added:” May the Almighty bless them abundantly for their good gesture. this will make a massive difference to me and my family and I would like to thank Nuha Jabbi and the team for extending a helping hand, Alabara”.

Other beneficiaries expressed similar sentiments.

In a similar development, FDF organised Iftar at the mosque for local worshippers.
