Yuletide 2022: Nigerian Muslim Woman Donates Food Items, Wrappers and Cash gifts To over 50 Christian Widows in Kaduna

As part of this year’s Christmas celebration amidst raising food prices across the country, a Muslim woman Hajiya Ramatu Tijjani has again commenced the distribution of foodstuffs and new wrappers to many widows in some churches in Kaduna State, to put a smile on their faces, and to take care of their orphans.

According to her, she is targeting over 200 widows with the gesture while saying that this is part of an effort to boost peaceful coexistence among the adherence of different faith and to enable widows to celebrate the season with joy and happiness like any other Christians around the world.

Hajiya Ramatu made the donations at the Church of Christ Evangelical and Life Intervention Ministry, Sabon Tasha, Kaduna State in the early hour of Sunday morning, 18th December 2022.
According to her, the gesture is part of the passion and the need to impart on the lives of underprivileged widows who are faced with economic hardship and little opportunity to provide for their children.

Hajiya Ramatu said for the past ten years, she has been donating bags of grains, wrappers, and other beverages for Christian widows and orphans during Christmas, and Easter celebrations aimed to strengthen Christian/Muslim relationships in the North.

She said “one thing we should always remember is that we are created by One God, and Adam and Eve were our original biological parents, and we all have holy books sent from one God that guides us on ways to live in peace and harmony, hence the need to assist the widows and orphans during a season like this irrespective of their tribe, culture, regions, language and historical background “

“I want to see widows, orphans, and elderly people at yuletide season smiling and enjoying themselves like any other Christian family during a festive season like this”

Responding, the General Overseer of the Church, Pastor Yohanna Buru, who is equally an Interfaith specialist in Nigeria and the winner of United Nations world International Interfaith Week and Harmony 2022, expressed satisfaction with Mrs. Tijjani’s gesture and called on wealthy individuals to be assisting the needy during a season of the birth of the Holy Christ and beyond.

The Christian clergy added the church cannot forget the donation of the 50 bibles by hajiya Ramatu which is to enable Christians to study their bible very well

Pastor Buru said last three years, the philanthropist distributed foodstuff to the widows for the Christmas and the Lenten season.

She used to bail out Christians at prisons with minor offenses for the sole purpose of joining their friends, relatives, and family to celebrate Christmas and Easter.

He called on Muslims and Christians to always live together in peace and harmony while appealing to marketers to offer a Christmas bonanza like it was done in developed countries.

One of the recipients of the gifts at the church name is withheld says, Hajiya Ramatu Tijjani has been coming to the church and distributing many things including promoting peacebuilding and religious tolerance for peace and harmony.
