Fourteenth Moon Foundation has distributed food items to Muslim teachers in Lagos State during Ramadhan.
The food distribution, which held recently, saw about 33 teachers benefitting from the food distribution.
Among the schools whose teachers benefitted from the food distribution 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 Founder of the Fourteenth Moon Foundation, Qassim Badrudeen, the food items were sponsored by Jaiz Foundation.
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 founder, however, appealed to beneficiaries to make judicious use of the food items given to them.
He also commended Jaiz Foundation for partnering with Fourteen Moon, urging more organisations to do the same.
Badrudeen said, “Today, we have been able to give food items to private school Muslim teachers with the support of the Jaiz Foundation. You can see that the joy in the teachers knew no bounds. 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.
