Bokkos Muslim Community Receive Sallah Donations from Para-Mallam Peace Foundation

In celebration of Sallah, the Gideon and Funmi Para-Mallam Peace Foundation has extended its generosity to the Muslim community in Bokkos Local Government Area of Plateau State. The foundation donated food items, clothing, and cash to support the festivities and promote unity.

Mr. Stephen Kefas, representing the foundation, presented the donations at Anwang Hausawa in Bokkos. “Our esteemed Muslim friends, we rejoice with you and wish your families a peaceful and joyful Sallah. May this period foster unity in our communities and nation. With our kindest regards, we wish you happy and peaceful celebrations on behalf of The Revd Dr. Gideon & Prof Funmi Para-Mallam,” said Kefas.

Receiving the items, Alhaji Audu Idi Balarabe, the Sarkin Hausawa Bokkos, expressed his joy and commended the foundation’s efforts. “Such gestures promote peace and unity among different communities. I urge other groups to emulate these initiatives to build cohesion,” Balarabe said. He also lamented the ongoing conflict in the Bokkos community, which has resulted in loss of lives and livelihoods, and prayed for the return of peace and harmony.

Haruna Adamu Hassan, a youth leader from Tangur Tu Mayeti Allah, also called for increased efforts towards restoring lasting peace in the community.

Bishop Dr. Ayuba Matawal, chairman of the Bokkos IDP Welfare Committee, praised the foundation’s continuous support. “Efforts like this show that someone cares. The Para-Mallam Peace Foundation has done more than enough and is one of the leading contributors to relief efforts. Bringing this gesture to the community is commendable and will go a long way in providing comfort and preventing potential conflicts,” said Matawal.

The foundation’s initiative during the Sallah celebrations underscores its commitment to fostering peace and unity in Plateau State.
