A Muslim charity organisation in the UK, the Nigeria Muslim Forum UK (NMFUK) has made available foodstuff worth N680, 400 (£2700) for distribution to victims of disaster in five states in Nigeria.
The foodstuff was shared among victims of disaster in Borno, Yobe, Kano, Plateau and Kaduna States and it comes at a time most of the victims are struggling to survive in the affected parts of the country, especially during the Ramadhan month of fasting.
Ameer Yusha’u in a statement said he “commends the efforts of the members of the committee set up to disburse the foodstuff for sparing their time and energy to ensure that those in dire need were able to promptly access it”.
Mr. Yusha’u also said the donation made by the body is “In fulfillment of one of its obligations as a charity organisation”.
The committee, set up by NMFUK comprises of Shuaibu Danbatta (chairman), Sani Makarfi, Malam Mahmud Dodo and Mukhtar Ahmad as members, was “mandated to devise a distribution formula on the basis of need”.
Mr. Yushau also said “given the status of NMFUK as a non-profit organisation, the fund was generated through fund raisers and donations”.
The Nigeria Muslim Forum is a UK based charity and its services are extended to the wider community in both the UK and Nigeria.
