Feeding the poor and needy is an act that draws us closer to Allah. We earn His forgiveness, mercies and blessings through this act of charity.

“Anyone who looks after and works for a widow and a poor person is like a warrior fighting for Allah?s cause, or like a person who fasts during the day and prays all night. (Bukhari)

The President, Nana Akufo-Addo, would on Wednesday, November 4, begin a four-day working visit to the Ashanti Region to inspect and inaugurate some infrastructural projects designed to uplift the living conditions of the people.

The projects relate to education, health, housing, roads, industry, and social amenities.

The Regional Coordinating Council (RCC), in an itinerary of the President’s visit copied to the Ghana News Agency (GNA) in Kumasi, said Nana Akufo-Addo would, as part of the tour, interact with the chiefs and people of some selected communities.
