NASRUL-LAHI-L-FATIH SOCIETY (NASFAT) Kaduna zone has distributed palliatives materials and Face masks to Kaduna residents.
The Chairman, NASFAT Kaduna Branch, Engr. Muhiydeen Alimi Yusuf, disclosed to journalists during the second phase of the distribution held in Kaduna Monday.
According to the chairman, the exercise was meant to cushion the effects of COVID-19 lockdown and Ramadan Fast.
“It has become necessary because government cannot do it alone and more so, the welfare of members has remained the society’s priority.
“We are here today as NASFAT to carry out sensitization in respect to the use of facemask as government had directed.
“Prior to this, we have gone round to give parliatives, food items to vulnerable members across the city of Kaduna. And today we are here to give free facemask to the vulnerable and needy people and also educate and enlighten them on how to use this facemask effectively because it is not enough to order people to wear the facemask every public place they are going without knowing how to handle it. It is important that people are taught how this facemask is used.
“We are trying to sensitize them on how to put on the mask on all by themselves. Not only that, and how to maintain it.
Our mosque here is located in one of the areas (Hayin Banki) that actually requires this kind of sensitization.
“Inspite of what we have put across to support government’s efforts to controlling the scourge of coronavirus pandemic, We have in addition organized special prayers for the entire nation and the whole world at large. H
Engr. Yusuf had advised individuals to comply with government directives as well as health officials and security agents in order that we get out of this pandemic situation that we find ourselves.
Speaking earlier the Zonal Missioner, Imam Marooph said this time calls for sober reflection and a time for everyone to appraise oneself. It is a time for one to go closer to our creator.
“Whatever that happens at any given time is the will of Allah. Whatever situation we find ourselves because of this pandemic, let us all commit ourselves to Allah.This period is a lesson, a period of examination.
“Is a period of test. Allah wants to test us. Allah wants to test our faith so Allah made these things to happen.
“Allah wants us to be patient. Allah wants us to call upon Him. Whoever wants to call on Allah, will need to be patient. Allah is always with those who establish patience in their activities,” he stressed.
