QNET, a leading e-commerce business, along with its independent representatives, agents and staff members, brought joy to underprivileged communities in 13 African countries in the holy month of Ramadan.
Living up to the principle and philosophy of its Corporate Social Responsibility arm, RHYTHM Foundation (Raising Yourself to Help Mankind), QNET organises this annual campaign to help enhance the lives of many less fortunate families and children, by providing them with necessities such as food, drinks and financial assistance for educational and humanitarian purposes. QNET consistently embodies RYTHM by showing compassion towards others.
In Senegal, Cameroon, Uganda, Tanzania, Niger, Mali, Burkina Faso, Togo, Guinea, Ivory Coast, Chad and Ghana, QNET donated bags of rice, gallons of cooking oil, assorted drinks, toiletries and cash to orphanages, muslim communities, educational charities, widows of military men and hospitals.
In Ghana, QNET donated bags of rice, gallons of cooking oil, boxes of drinking water, and toiletries to the needy and a cash sum of GHC 3,000 to support the Office of the Chief Imam’s orphanage and educational trust fund projects.
The National Chief Imam, Sheikh Dr. Nuhu Sharubutu commended Qnet for the kind gesture.
The National Chief Imam is the highest Islamic authority in Ghana. The Chief Imam directly feeds many less-privileged Muslims who throng his residence during the Ramadan period. In addition, the Office of the Chief Imam coordinates an orphanage, an educational trust fund and a peace and security organisation.
Commenting on the event this year, Biram Fall, QNET Regional Manager for Sub-Saharan Africa said; “The Ramadan charity campaign has been one of our key campaigns every year. It is indeed a very meaningful, heart-warming and fulfilling initiative for QNET. Such campaigns promote empowerment of the community and are also very inspiring for our staff and our Independent Representatives, as they become personally involved in enriching the lives of others.”
