The Zakat and Sadaqat Foun­da­tion (ZSF) has dis­trib­uted cash and em­pow­er­ment ma­te­ri­als to over 140 ben­e­fi­cia­ries in some parts of the coun­try. The foun­da­tion’s Ex­ec­u­tive Di­rec­tor, Prince Su­ly­man Ola­gunju, said the ben­e­fi­cia­ries were drawn from Nasarawa, Niger and Kogi states and the FCT.

Items dis­trib­uted in­clude sewing, grind­ing and shoe mak­ing ma­chines, deep freez­ers, among oth­ers.

Ola­gunju said funds were also dis­bursed to the sick, needy and stu­dents to sup­port and cater for their wel­fare, ed­u­ca­tion, busi­nesses, med­i­cal, debt re­lief and ac­com­mo­da­tion.

He added that 25 se­nior ci­ti­zens age 60 and above also ben­e­fited in the Se­nior Ci­ti­zens Pro­gramme Sup­port. He urged well-mean­ing Nige­ri­ans to con­tinue reach­ing out to the less-priv­i­leged through Zakat foun­da­tions.
