According to report, Alhaji Musa Tarawally brings in multi million pounds British Islamic NGO ‘Ummah welfare Trust’ to support fasting with one billion Leones worth of food items, targeting Widows, orphans, handicaps, the blind and vulnerable people.
Many disadvantaged people in Freetown, Moyamba District, Kenema District, Portloko District and Bombali District are expected to benefit from these gifts.
Ummah Welfare Trust is a reputable Islamic NGO that expense 25 million pounds sterling per year on charity. They came to Sierra Leone through the invitation of Alhaji Musa Tarawally who is well known and respected for his generosity and support to Muslims across the country.
During the last Ramadan, Alhaji Musa Tarawally brought in country a learned Mufty Sheikh Yusuf Shabbir to propagate the Quran, targeting Imams, thus training them how to preach and encouraging them to teach Quranic lessons in the Mosques.
The visit of the learned Mufty exposed the need for immediate intervention which mobilised Ummah Welfare Trust to support Muslims in Sierra Leone.
The Ramadan Iftar is so timely at a time when people can hardly afford meal. And, if most statesmen can emulate the Alhaji Musa Tarawally’s endeavour, the suffering of our vulnerable people/Muslims will be alleviated.
