Follow up of Wakashio collateral victims

In a spirit of solidarity towards families in distress Maison Dawah effected two food distribution programmes on 19 August 2020 and 3 February 2021 at Résidence La Chaux and Rivière Des Creoles respectively.

A few months ago, in 2021, registered fishermen received a monetary compensation from the authorities.

However, there are other fishermen and people who earn a living in sea-related activities who are not registered with the authorities.It is this group of families that Maison Dawah decided to help this time.

In collaboration with an active and well-known social worker, Mr. Gino Juhel, Maison Dawah proceeded with food distribution on Monday 14 February 2022 at Petit Bel Air Stadium. 12 selected families received a food pack each worth about Rs 1,000.

In his introductory speech, Mr Gino talked about the rich history of the southern region- Ferney, Rivière Des Creoles etc. He thanked Maison Dawah repeatedly for this humanitarian action. Whereas Ahamad Boodoo of Maison Dawah gave an overview of the activities of Maison Dawah before explaining the teaching of Islam about our duty to give food to people, especially to those in distress. Staff of Maison Dawah also explained to the beneficiaries about the procedures to apply for SRM (Social Register of Mauritius).
