Mobile Telecommunications Network (MTN), as part of its annual support to the Muslim community in the country, has donated food items to the Tamale Central Mosque to support members of the congregation on its ongoing Ramadan activities.
The items included; 10 bags of rice, 10 boxes of cooking oil, 20 packs of assorted drinks, 20 packs of water, a ram, and GHc500 worth of airtime valued at GHc5000.00.
Mr Obed Adu-Amankwaah, Area Sales Manager of MTN in-charge of Northern Regions, who presented the items to the Northern Regional Chief Imam in Tamale on Thursday, expressed hope that by the time the Ramadan festivities would be over, the COVID-19 pandemic would also be over so that life could return to normalcy in the country.
Muslims across the country are observing their month-long Ramadan fasting after which they will celebrate Eid-ul-Fitr, an important Islamic religious activity.
Mr Adu-Amankwaah reiterated the need for the citizenry to adhere to the health precautions to avoid the spread of the disease in the country, emphasising the need for residents to stay at home, if they did not have any pressing thing to do in town.
Sheik Ahmed Abdul Salam, Northern Regional Chief Imam expressed gratitude to the MTN for the gesture and prayed for Allah’s blessings on the operations of the company.
