   Takoradi (W/R), Feb, 28, GNA-Twenty-Five persons, including traders, dressmakers, students and others with health-related problems in the Western Region, have benefitted from the Zakat and Sadaqa Trust Fund of Ghana.

Beneficiaries of the fund from the Islamic communities in the Western Region received cash awards between 400 and 3,000 cedis for sewing machines, trading, educational and health support.
In a keynote address at the awards ceremony, the Western Regional Board Chairman, Steering Committee of Zakat and Sadaqa Trust Fund, Alhaji Mohammed Jamil Balla, said the fund was established in 2010 to enable Muslim workers to observe the most neglected pillar of Islam-Zakat.

He appealed to the Islamic community and other members of society to support the fund grow to benefit many more people.
The Chief Imam of the Airforce, Flying Officer Musha Roundine Maiga, a supporter of the fund, said he has asked all-new military recruits to donate to the Zakat fund.
