Hijrah TV, an international television network headquartered in Ghana joined hands with Kumasi Zongo Youth,UK and donated food items to 500 vulnerable persons in Kumasi.
In the media section with a member of the Zongo Youth Organization, Mr. Kamil Abdul Rahman, who also led the donation stated that COVID-19 is currently a threat to the world, as such the world is fighting a common enemy.
The government with its good idea is putting measures, and as currently we are in a partial lockdown.
Many of our relatives, friends, loved ones, need our services and support such as food and protective items.
We have joined hands with Hijrah TV to distribute 5-kilogram sack of rice and cooking oil to persons in some communities in Kumasi such as Asawase, Aboabo number 1 and 2, Moshie Zongo, Dagomba line, and old tafo Zongo.
He also called upon all those who can assist to support the needy, We can’t give out to everyone but our target is the vulnerable ones,He said.
On his part, the Editor-in-chief of Hijrah TV Mr.Hamza Adams, added that the president of the republic made an announcement over some restrictions which included a partial lockdown which affected some parts of the country ( Tema, Accra , kasoa , kumasi and obuasi ).
People were not expecting the lockdown , some of us didn’t prepare For that matter most of us are facing financial difficulties.
Due to that, Hijrah TV and Kumasi Zongo Youth in the UK collaborated to support the vulnerable.
We are trying to mobilize more food for the less privileged ones by the close of the week, we have distributed 500 food items but still didn’t achieve what we wanted.
