Prominent Islamic female group, the Sisters of Jannah, Ilorin Zone, on Sunday took to some communities in Ilorin, the Kwara State capital, to sensitize the people on imperative of early detection of breast cancer.
The goal of the commendable selfless community activity is to “close the care gap”.
The program was strategically organized via a WALK around the emirate main market, Oja Oba, through the Central Mosque, Gegele and back to Oja Oba roundabout. Members of the group were seen distributing flyers with sensitization talks with women, men and children on early detection to save lives.
The 2022 cancer awareness program is said to be one out of many community services “done and delivered” by the Muslim sisters.
In October, the Ilorin zone of Sisters of Jannah, driven with passion to alleviate poverty and care for the needy in the society, put smiles on the faces of some school children with torn uniforms, some without bags, shoes and other essential school items.
Some of these children are orphans or kids staying with their aged grandparents that cannot afford basic school materials.
A total of 80 school bags, 50 female uniforms, 30 male uniforms were given out to the children. The sisters also gifted school socks, pairs of sandals and canvasses to outstanding students in primary classes.
The group had also earlier in the year distributed food items to the aged and needy within communities in Ilorin.
According to the group, their focus is aimed at taking care of the aged, the needy and the orphans. The sisters said, “How can we get it wrong when we are looking for the truly impoverished? Alhamdullahi for the guidance from Allah. Alhamdullahi for the contentment.
“We aren’t super rich monetarily. Far from it but the passion to change the narration positively is burning. The passion to alleviate poverty each year drives us to empty our accounts to ensure we feed as many poor in our community as humanly possible.”
“Alhamdulilah robil alamin for the success of ilorin zone 2022 cancer awareness program.”
