Her Excellence Fatima Maada Bio First Lady of the Republic of Sierra Leone
On 25th May 2019, Mrs Fatima Bio joined the Muslim community at the mortomeh with mudslide survivors in prayer. As part of fulfilling her fundamental obligation of Islam in the holy month of ramadan, the first lady identified herself with the people and survivors of the mortomeh community.
The first lady prayed at two unfinished mosques in the community. The leaders of the mosques appreciated the efforts of the first lady and also pleaded with her for assistance in completing the two masjid respectively. “This mosque and the other were destroyed by the sad mudslide incident which happened two years ago and we’ve been unable to complete them due to lack of funding” one of the Imams said.
The first lady as usual, donated some food items and money for these mosques as she has been doing to various mosques in different parts of the country. These items are to be utilized by the mosques especially during the month of ramadan.
Mrs Bio asked the Imams and the Muslim community to continue the good work and to also pray for the country for unending developments.
She also asked the people of the said community not to relent in the course of Islam as Allah tests each and every Muslim at His pleased time.
One of the Imams, on behalf of the mortomeh community thanked the first lady and her Entourage for the ramadan visit as he clearly stated that they were not expecting such unannounced visit.
