GENERAL SANTOS CITY (April 17, 2022) — The United Youth for Peace and Development (UNYPAD) – General Santos City (GenSan) Chapter spearheads the Ramadhan UNYfood Express, an initiative that provides less fortunate Muslim community members with food this holy month of Ramadhan.
Sixty beneficiaries from Barangay Fatima, this city, received food packs comprised of rice, noodles, sardines, coffee and bread for the first round of distribution.
The food packs were provided by Saudi Arabia King Salman bin Abdulaziz al Saud thru its “Gift of Iftar” from the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques project coursed through Sheikh Umer Kalimbol.
“Ramadhan UNYfood Express” is a project proposed by the Women Affairs Committee of the United Youth for Peace and Development- GenSan Chapter. Its goal is to help needy families to provide food for iftar. The UNYfood express will transport essential items to the selected recipients residing at General Santos City,” the organizers said in its post at FB page.
The post further said, “Whoever provides the food for a fasting person to break his fast with, then for him is the same reward as his (the fasting person’s), without anything being diminished from the reward of the fasting person.” – Narrated by At-Tirmidhi
The undertaking is under the supervision of the Noraisa Amolan, chairperson of the Women’s Affairs Committee.
