First Lady Mrs. Fatima Maada Bio has stated that she is thankful to Allah, for giving her the opportunity to continue celebrating his name. “I am a proud Muslim woman who believes in the teaching of our Prophet Mohammad (SAW). There is nothing more fulfilling than giving Zakat to the needy. This is part of the pillars of Islam,” she said while visiting a number of mosques to give Zakat in this Ramadan season.
Madam Bio in conjunction with the Julius Maada Bio Women’s Wing (JMB-WW) has over the past few days been going around donating food and other items to various mosques around the city.
This is in observance of the season of Ramadan. Madam Fatima Maada Bio and the Julius Maada Bio Women’s Wing (JMB-WW) are on this exercise to demonstrate their generosity to Muslims in different parts of the country.
H.E. Fatima Maada Bio and JMB-WW join worshippers at the Hill Station Mosque, on Wednesday 15th May, 2019. They also gave Zakat in the spirit of Ramadan and also joined worshippers at the Majid Rahman Mosque, Goderich in Freetown, on the same day. They also gave Zakat in the spirit of Ramadan.
The First Lady and JMB-WW started the tradition of giving over 5 years ago in the name of Allah and they continue to donate and ask for more prayers for President Bio and the good people of Sierra Leone.
As giving is believed to be caring and is perceived as one way to unite people and promote oneness, Fatima Bio and the JMB-WW also made donations to Muslims at the Central Mosque in Freetown and the Sierra Leone People’s Party (SLPP) mosque at its headquarters in Freetown on Tuesday 14th May 2019.
Also, quite recently, she led a group to present gifts and to mobilize women and some male loyalists to go across Kono District to do presentations to her fellow Muslims.
Muslims in Sewafe, Kamadu, Sulkudu, Peiyema, Tombodu, Koiquema, and Koidu Town, all benefited from the generosity of Fatima Bio and the JMB Women’s Wing.
A total of two hundred bags of rice, sugar, flower, salt, oil, tomatoes, kola and money was distributed.
She added: “I am also very happy to share it with my people from Kono where I come from, and to seek their blessings for my family, the government and the people of this nation on the first Friday of Ramadan,” she added.
The women in attendance that were the beneficiaries promised that they will continue to do their charity work throughout Ramadan.
