In fulfillment of his religious obligation as a Muslim, former Finance and Development Planning Minister, Amara M. Konneh, has distributed several assorted food items through the Consortium of Muslim Youth Organizations (CMYO) and the Liberia Muslim Women’s Network (LMWN) to Muslim communities in five of the 15 counties.
The items, valued at about L$400,000, will be distributed to Bomi, Montserrado, Grand Cape Mount, Margibi and Bong counties.
Semah S. Komala, president of CMYO, who presented the items on behalf of Mr. Konneh, said the donation was intended to show Mr. Konneh’s appreciation for his Muslim brothers and sisters during the Holy Month of Ramadan.
Mr. Konneh is now the Manager of the World Bank Group’s Global Fragility, Conflict and Violence (FCV) Hub in Nairobi, Kenya.
Komala expressed Konneh’s wish that the items will be used by his fellow Muslims as they pray for peace, reconciliation, development in the country as Liberians gear-up to celebrate Independence Day on July 26.
West Point central mosque imam, Ibraheem F. Fortune, who received the items on behalf of the Muslims, expressed gratitude to Mr. Konneh for the gesture.
He prayed that Allah will continue to grant Mr. Konneh his heart’s desire.
