The chairperson of the humanitarian group was also given the title of Maman Marayun Bauchi in appreciation for her support to the less privileged in the society.

 

 

Speaking during the exercise, the Bauchi Local Government Council chairperson, Hajiya Zainab Babban Takko, who expressed appreciation to the group for their support to less privileged, implored them to always apply for assistance whenever such programmes are planned to enable the council contribute their quota to the upliftment of beneficiaries’ livelihood.

Hajiya Zainab pledged her continued support to the group, saying such gestures serve as Sadagatul Jariya for even after the demise of the giver as stipulated in the Holy Qur’an.

 

 

Delivering her lecture tilled ‘Assisting the Orphans and Vulnerable Children in the Society’, Malama Khadija Adamu emphasised the need for women to engage in useful ventures to enable them support their children as government alone cannot cater for the needs of all its citizens.

In separate remarks, some of the beneficiaries Zainab Ibrahim, crippled, Aisha Abdullahi, mother of six orphans, and Abubakar Abdullahi expressed appreciation to the charity organisation for bringing smiles in their lives.

 

 

They appealed for more support from other wealthy individuals and begged philanthropic groups to come to their aid in view of the situation they found themselves.
