A more-than-decade long tradition continued on Friday when Managing Director of Mohamed’s Enterprise, Azruddin Mohamed, handed over substantial financial donations to 17 Non-Governmental Organisations (NGOs), Orphanages and Special Needs Institutions at his residence.
The beneficiaries are: Joshua House, Ptolemy Reid Centre, Baitur Rahmah, Sorcha Williams Foundation, St. Ann’s Orphanage, Shaheed’s Boys and Girl Orphanage, Guyana Society for the Blind, St. John’s Bosco Orphanage, Guyana Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, Dharm-Shala, Guyana Islamic Trust Relief, along with Special needs institutions, namely Gifted Hands Learning Centre, Met Pride, Diamond School for Children’s Special Needs, David Rose Handicap, St. Barnabas Special Needs and Ruimveldt Children’s Aid Centre.
In welcoming representatives of the various groups into his residence, Azruddin Mohamed, in the presence of some family members, underscored the importance of persons who are in a position to help the less fortunate, do so out of the kindness of their hearts.
“Charity does not diminish your wealth, instead it increases it. Put a smile on the faces of the less fortunate and Allah will put a smile on yours when it is most needed,” he said in an invited comment.
He added, “For those who hoard their wealth Allah will make it a source of distress both in this life and the hereafter.”
Several of the representatives expressed immense gratitude for the continued support of Mohamed’s Enterprise and noted that such assistance is significant in helping to assist those in their care.
Just in October, the business entity donated G$15 million to the animal welfare group, Paws For A Cause, towards the construction of their Animal Welfare Centre.
