KAMPALA – Diamond Trust Bank – DTB has given Muslims at Gadafi Mosque in Kampala food items to celebrate with them the month of Ramadan. The Muslims will later this week end their holy month.
The food items include sacks of sugar, rice, cooking oil, and flour, among others.
The donation was handed over by Mr. Andrew Musanje, the Head of Branches and Alternate Business at DTB who applauded the Muslims for moving on the journey with them, noting that the foodstuffs are just a token of appreciation.
“As DTB, we have always been giving back to the Muslim community and today we have decided to come to Old Kampala Muslim Mosque, one of our partners in business to give back to them.”
He noted that as DTB they appreciate the month of Ramadan and giving back to their Muslim brothers and sisters is a reward.
“We are therefore here on the occasion of Ramadan iftar to celebrate the breaking of the fast – one of the most sacred and joyful rituals of Islam. Our Muslim brothers and sisters across the country and the entire world have been fasting and breaking the fast together as a sign of celebrating common humanity and the universal values of peace, charity, community, and family,” said Musanje.
He encouraged them to bank with us DTB, noting that, “with us, you are secure.”
Sheikh Shaban Mubaje Ramadhan, the Grand Mufti of Uganda, thanked DTB for such a good gesture which strengthens the ties between the bank and the Muslim community.
Mubaje asked the Muslims to embrace DTB products and services revealing that all the mosques have been given DTB accounts to use countrywide.
“Only in the districts where you (DTB) have no branch, is when we shall look for an alternative,” he pledged.
