Freetown, September 07, 2010 In a bid to realize the value of the Holy month of Ramadan, Zain Sierra Leone on Friday, 3rd September 2010 provided donation program to many Central Mosques in the country. The donation is intended to recognize the role Muslims are playing during the Holy month of Ramadan from the companys perspective and to also help the mosques improve their service to the people.

 
Port Loko Central Mosque


Zain donated items to the following Mosques:

Freetown Central Mosque (Ghadafi) Bai Bureh Road
Central Mosque Wilberforce Street
Wilberforce Mosque
Lumley Mosque Babadorie
Bo Central Mosque Fenton Road
Hangha Town Mosque Hangha Town, Bo
Kenema Central Kenema
Fullah Mosque Kenema
Port Loko Central Mosque Port Loko
Lungi Central Mosque Lungi
Jaiama Sewafe Central Mosque
Koidu Central Mosque
Makeni Central Mosque
Magburaka Central Mosque


At every Mosque, the following items were donated:

Bags of sugar, Cartoons of tomato Puree, Seasoning (Jumbo Cube), Bags of onion, Rice (50Kg), Cooking oil, Praying mats, Muslim Scarf (Mafaylay), Muslim Cap, Quran, ULCH Phones.


"Looking at the amount of items donated at every Mosque, the number of donation is not so big, thinking of the number of Muslims in the country but we hope the donation can be utilized as much as possible to improve service to the people during this Holy month and beyond," said Keith Tukei Zains Commercial Director.


Keith Tukei explained, the donation distributed by Zain will be used by each mosque to, for instance, adequately dress Muslims who can not afford to buy dress for the Prayer day, to cook food for those who sleep in the mosque for the ten days, to cook for the Muslim community in the area, to even establish a good relationship between the Mosque and their respective communities.


He added, aside from CSR activity in the form of charity program, to welcome Ramadan and Idul Fitri, Zain also offered Muslims nation-wide the opportunity to stay in touch with fellow compatriots. This was done through the Happy Wednesday Promotion. Every Wednesday during the month of Ramadan, Zain subscribers were offered unlimited calls from 8.00 am to 6.00 pm. The enrollment to this offer only cost them 100 units.
