The Kano State Hisba Board on Tuesday distributed rice and cooking oil to 1,200 widows who have children.

Director General of the board, Dr Abba Sufi, presided over the distribution of the items in Kano.

He explained that the items were donated by an Islamic group, Jama’atul Nasril Islam (JNI), to assist orphans and other less privileged persons during the forthcoming Ramadan.

Each of the beneficiaries was given one bag of rice and a gallon of cooking oil.

Sufi called on wealthy individuals and corporate organisations to support the poor, especially during the forthcoming Ramadan fast to earn the blessings of Allah.

“He who assists or feeds the poor during this sacred month will be replenished abundantly in addition to earning Allah’s blessings.’’

He commended the group for the gesture and urged similar organisations to emulate JNI, adding that no donation would be too small for assistance.

Sufi called on wealthy, public spirited individuals to continue to support the poor to alleviate their sufferings.
