A charitable program to distribute Eid dresses for students of Darunnajat Orphanage in Karuvarakkundu, India, was launched by P.A. Abdul Rahman, managing director of Shifa Jeddah Polyclinic, here recently.
Abdul Rahman gave a check to the Kerala Muslim Cultural Center (KMCC), Saudi national committee President E.P. Ubaid to meet the program’s financial requirement.
There are 300 orphans in Darunnajat, which was established by K.T. Manu Musliyar in 1976.
Addressing the ceremony, Abdul Rahman commended the committee’s efforts to take care of orphans, one of good activities encouraged by Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him).
“Caring orphans does not mean just giving them food and shelter. We should also provide them with proper education,” said Ubaid.
He urged Muslims to support the program by making generous donations.
KMCC Saudi national committee Vice President P.T. Muhammad, Jeddah KMCC central committee Vice President Sahal Thangal, Mamabad College Alumni Association Vice President Hussein Chulliyode, and Vice President Nasser Melethil attended the function.
National committee secretary Muhammad Bappu welcomed the participants, while E.K. Yousuf Kurikkal gave a vote of thanks.
