The youth wing of Ahmadiyya Muslim Community (Khuddam-Ul Ahmadiyya) in Abura Zone of Central Region reached out to students of the Cape Coast School for the Deaf and Blind.
Members donated to students essential supplies that included gari, beans, rice, 55 pieces of mosquito nets, soap and detergents, soft drinks, water, toiletries and sanitary supplies.
The gift supplies were purchased with member contributions. The youth of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community also spent some time interacting with students to get to know at first hand how they lived on the school campus. They had fun playing a soccer match with the students.
Mr. Rahman A. Quarm, President of the youth group said the donation was in fulfilment of the community’s annual charity projects that support the socially disadvantaged. Mr. Quarm said the group did a lot of humanitarian outreach activities through which it preached peace and love. He noted that the Islamic faith teaches believers to be benevolent, loving, caring and being each other’s keeper.
Mrs. Regina Essilfie, Assistant Head in charge of academics, commended the Ahmadiyya Community for their benevolence and called on other religious and corporate institutions to visit regularly.
The Cape Coast School for the Deaf and Blind currently has a population of more than 500 students.
