Ramadan: Israeli Embassy, Jewish Group Donate Food Items To Abuja Fulani Community




(AFRICAN EXAMINER) – The Israeli Embassy and the ChabadAid of Nigeria on Wednesday donated food items to support the Fulani community to celebrate the Ramadan fast in the FCT.

The ChabadAid is a humanitarian programme of the Jewish community.

The food items donated to the Fulani community in Abuja contained rice, beans, groundnut-oil, pasta and maize.

Rabbi Israel Uzan, Rabbi of Israel to Nigeria, who presented the food items, said the focus was to reach every Muslim community across Nigeria.

He said that although Jewish community faced challenges globally, it would promote peaceful co-existence between Jewish and Muslim community in Nigeria, as example to the entire world.

“We will try to assist where we can render such at the moment and we are working with some Muslim-based organisations and they directed us to where there are bigger basic needs.

“For sure, we will continue to carry out such projects and our donations in future will be much bigger, where we can get across the entire Nigeria,” Uzan said.

“We focus on development of humanity, education, healthcare services and provision of potable water; so we are more focused on developing humanity at this period of COVID-19 and Ramadan.

“Food is needed and this is why we donated the food items, we have also discussed with Jewish friends about providing school in the community.



“We have established a water supply system, in a few months we are going to work toward establishing schools with all the curriculum that they will need,” he said.

Receiving the items on behalf of the Fulani community, Mr Bature Adamu expressed appreciation to Israel and ChabadAid for donation.

He noted that the community had been in existence since 1976, saying most members were born in the settlement.

“The community is pleased with the donation and borehole that they provided for us.

“Our community needs schools and Mosques, although we don’t have them yet, they have promised to establish them for us.

“For now they have brought food and provided a borehole, we do not have a hospital but go to town to access health care services,” Adamu said.

The food items were put together by the Israeli embassy, in collaboration with ChabaAid, King of Kings, Foundation For Ethnic Understanding, Alliance of Rabbis in Muslim States, RCC, BEX, MAG Technologies and Heritage Bank.

The Fulani community comprised Ruga Jadi, Ruga Sauka and Ruga Besa villages among others. (NAN)
