Youth wing of the Ahmadiyya Muslim community (Khuddam-Ul- Ahmadiyya) in the Abura zone of the Central Region over the weekend donated assorted items to the deaf and blind.
The items included a bag of gari, beans, rice, mosquito nets and assorted drinks among other items.
They also played a football match and socialized with the students to familiarize themselves with the activities of the school.
Presenting the items, Mr. Rahman Arthur Quarm, President of the group said the donation was in fulfillment of the community’s annual charity projects aimed at providing support for deprived members of the society.
He added that the charity project of the Ahmadiyya Community has seen donations to the Ankaful Maximum Prison, Ankaful Leprosarium and other orphanages in the Central Region.
“We do a lot of humanitarian activities through which we preach peace and love. We want to impact lives as many as we can. Our religion teaches us to be benevolent, loving, caring and above all, be each other’s keeper. Don’t be surprise. We are only following the teachings of Islam,” he stated.
Assistant Head in charge of Academic of the deaf and blind school, Mrs. Regina Elsilfie received the items on behalf of the school and commended the Ahmadiyya Community for their humanity.
She also called on other religious and cooperate institutions to replicate the kind gesture by the Ahmadiyya Community.
She mentioned some challenges confronting the school to include poor road networks, water inaccessibility and lack of teaching and learning materials.
Currently, Cape Coast School for the deaf and blind has a population of more than 500 students.
