ACTNews, KANIFING - Global Wakaf is back to bring happiness in Africa. This time, thousands of copies of the Quran were delivered to students in Serrekunda, Brikama, Basumbala, Kanifing City, Gambia.
Andy Noor Faradiba from the Global Humanity Response-ACT reported that the Quran distribution lasted for a week from November 13 to 20. "Almost all students who get the new Quran copies come from poor families. Most of them do not have their own Quran copies and usually use the old ones belonging to their schools in turn.
Lamin Jerreh Bass (34), one of the teachers in the Serrekunda area, expressed his gratitude for the new Qurans because it is very useful for students and families in the area.
"Of the 18 members of our family, only two have jobs as teachers. The highest education in our family is high school. Thirteen members of our families are under 18 years of age. Alhamdulillah, we benefit so much from this program, especially my younger siblings." he concluded.
