In the spirit of Ramadan, a Jos-based philanthropist, Mohammad Adams yesterday donated food items to prison inmates in the Plateau State capital.
Adams, popularly known as Dan London, while making the donations, tasked Muslims in the state to show love to the less privileged as preached by Prophet Mohammed.
He said that the food items were part of their humanitarian service to inmates, who were not privileged to experience Ramadan, the holy month of fasting, with their families.
He said, “The visit is part of our activities in assisting the less privileged in the society by donating food items and medical supplies to reduce their hardship. We donate these items to orphanages, widows, and the sick in the society. This year, we chose the prison to show our kind gesture; we know that they need love especially in this month of Ramadan.
He urged the inmates to accept the prison as a correctional facility to make them responsible persons worthy of emulation and prayed God to protect and preserve them in all their ways.
Mohammad also urged individuals, organisations and government, to support the prison inmates by improving their welfare, promising that he would fast-track their reformation.
He urged Muslim faithful to frequently visit the inmates even if they do not have anything to donate, this he said was an expression of love and would give those in custody a sense of belonging.
