The Humanitarian Headway an NGO has donated assorted goods to Patients at the Ridge hospital here in Accra. The items donated include toiletries, detol, sachets of Milo, Nido, bottled water among others.
The donation is to mark the mothers day celebration and the near successful completion of Ramadan.
Speaking to the media the leader of the NGO, Miss Nadiyatu Abdul Rahman said, Islam, admonishes sharing back to society.
She said it is even special sharing especially during this month of Ramadan. She added that this was more special because it is happening on mothers day.
She quotes a Prophetic hadith that states “Visit the sick, feeds the hungry, and arrange for the release of the captive” to justify the organization’s kind gesture.
She concludes that the gifts were specifically for women who may not be receiving gifts from their relatives on such occasion hence the reason they targetted the women ward. The Organisation also calls on individuals to support them so it will be easier for them to give more.
The nurse in charge Madam Jemima expressed gratitude for the kind gestures and prayed for God to replenish the pockets of the donor. She also called on others to come to support patients and the hospital as a whole.
The recipients at the female ward were brimming with smiles when they received their gifts and thanked the donors as well.
