The initiative for the annual Ramadan Iftar meals provided for the Muslim faithful at the Egbe Central Mosque in Lagos by the Barley Charity Foundation has commenced.

At the launch of this year’s programme, the founder of the organisation, Mrs Adeshola Ojo, who doubles as the Yeye Gbo`baniyi of Egbe Kingdom, said it is her way of giving back to society.

Over the next 30 days, the foundation intends to feed between 300 and 500 people daily. It is part of its commitment to tackling hunger within the community.

Mrs Ojo, while sharing her inspiration for the initiative, emphasised her strong determination to alleviate this issue and make a positive impact on the lives of those in need.

“The hunger I see in our community compels me to take action and make a positive impact.

“This program ensures that everyone has access to a nourishing meal to break their fast during this holy month,” she said.

Speaking further, she said, “This annual Iftar end of Ramadan meal is a manifestation of our commitment to creating positive change and addressing the fundamental needs of our community.”

At the commencement of this year’s programme, the foundation served meals to about 350 people, creating awareness and encouraging participation for the remaining days of Ramadan.

The diverse crowd included both young and old, individuals from all walks of life coming together in the spirit of community and shared faith.

Established in 2020 amid the COVID-19 pandemic, the foundation has undertaken numerous initiatives over the years. These efforts span providing palliative support to community members during the pandemic and offering assistance to the less fortunate, widows, and youth in the vicinity.

Additionally, the foundation has collaborated with medical professionals to conduct free eye screenings and implemented various youth empowerment programs.

The Barley Charity Foundation’s Iftar end-of-Ramadan meal has become a beacon of hope and compassion, reflecting the organisation’s commitment to making a positive difference in the lives of those facing hardship.
