The Jamiyyar Matan Arewa (JMA) has presented an Award Certificate of Excellence for Golden Heart Lifetime Achievement to the Daily Trust Foundation in recognition and appreciation of the Company’s consistent support to the orphanage home.
The Daily Trust Foundation which is the corporate social responsibility arm of Media Trust Limited (MTL), publishers of the Daily Trust titles, Aminiya newspaper, Kilimanjaro magazine, and Trust TV, has been supporting the orphanage and the orphans for some years.
The foundation in 2021 through its Programme Officer, Imam Nma Shuaib, donated food items to the orphanage to assist them during Ramadan.
But the President, JMA, while presenting the award to the foundation in Kaduna, commended the immense contribution of the foundation to the wellbeing and upkeep of the orphans.
“We are truly grateful for your continuous support to the orphans who have been abandoned by their actual families. We pray that Allah will continue to shower His blessings on you to continue the good work you are doing.”
“Like Oliver Twist, I would like to appeal for more support in the area of education especially for the orphans so that their future is guaranteed. As you know, we are an ethnic, non-religious, and non-political organization so we are not funded by anyone; we don’t have a source of funding, we fund our activities through monthly dues by our members and goodwill for Nigerians.”
She then called on philanthropists and well-meaning Nigerians to support orphans and help them reach their full potential.
Responding on behalf of the foundation, a staff member of MTL, Maryam Ahmadu-Suka, thanked the organization for the recognition.
