The Jam’iyar Matan Arewa (JMA) Premier Orphanage and Malali Orphanage homes in Kaduna on Monday benefited from donation of food and non-food items from the Daily Trust Foundation.
The organization is the corporate social responsibility arm of Media Trust Limited, publishers of the Daily Trust titles, Aminiya newspaper and Kilimanjaro magazine.
The items, including rice, pasta, noodles, sugar, salt, semovita, diapers, beans, vegetable oil, palm oil, baby milk, laundry soap and food condiments, were handed over to the management of the orphanages in Kaduna.
Handing over the items to the beneficiaries, Programme Officer, Daily Trust Foundation, Imam Nma Shuaib, said he hoped the items will go a long way in assisting the orphans especially during the holy month of Ramadan.
JMA Boss, Rabi Saulawa, thanked the foundation for the donation over the years and assured that it will go a long way in helping the orphans.
According to the source, the Office Manager of Malali Orphanage, Sa’adu Dabo, said though they do not have a facility where orphaned children live, they would identify orphans staying with relatives, register with them for onward distribution of the items.
He, however, thanked the foundation for always coming to their aid and prayed Allah to continue to bless its endeavour.
