”What informed our decision to come up with this idea is to extend our social responsibility as association and to assist government knowing the fact that government cannot do it alone and people are in terrible situation due to lockdown caused by covid 19
”So the food stuffs we have distributed to our members and other individuals in the society will go along way in reducing their hardship in this lockdown period” Umar said
