A foundation, known as ‘Ummu AYTAM (Marayu),’ has embarked on a weekly distribution of palliatives to over 700 households in Kaduna to reduce the effect of the Corona virus lockdown on persons in the state.
This was revealed to news men in Kaduna by president of the foundation, Mrs Zubaida Bature, on Saturday, 16th May, 2020.
Bature said that the distribution has been ongoing weekly
when the state government eased its lockdown, and the aim is to compliment
efforts in reducing hardship to the people of the state.
According to her, “About 20 communities have so far benefited. Some of the communities that have already benefited from the food assistance include Tudun Wada, Rigasa, Kawo, Hayin Banki, Hayin Malam Bello, Danbushiya, and Malalin Gabas, among others.”
The foundation president added that its objective was to cater for the needy and less-privileged in the society.
It could be recalled that the foundation is nongovernmental and non-profitable organization, which aims at “nurturing orphans and the less-privileged in the society with love and care.”
Some of the items distributed included rice, millet, spaghetti, noodles, sugar, peak milk and macaroni. The foundation also distributed over 2,000 face-masks.
