IFFD Ramadhaan 1440 Diaries - Day 1
IFFD officials made sure the community of t/a Kachenga (Mkwatula and Chikamana villages) are provided with communal Iftaar items. The items delivered were plastic cups, pots, plastic plates, rice, sugar, salt, etc. The meals will be cooked for the community to partake soon after Iftaar, Insha Allah.
IFFD runs three Madrasahs in Balaka - at Kachenga (Chikamana and Mkwatula) and Chimpakati in t/a Msamala area.
Balaka has been hit by a wave of Christian missionaries in previously predominant Muslim areas, luring them to lose their Imaan through petty handouts and material things. These efforts by IFFD will assist, insha Allah, in making sure the little one's learn their Deen from small so as to counter these efforts by the missionaries.
These Madrasahs are run with the financial assistance of Brother Zubair Motala of Johannesburg (RSA).
