Keda(Ghana) Ceramics Company Limited, manufacturers of Twyford titles on Tuesday, July 20, 2021, made a donation to the Muslim community at the central mosque in Kumasi in the Ashanti region in celebration of this year’s Eid-ul-Adha.
Eid-ul-Adha or the Festival of Sacrifice is held every year by all Muslims all over the world to commemorate the obedience of Ibrahim's commitment to God, where Allah came to Ibrahim in a dream and asked him to sacrifice his own son Ismail as an act of obedience to God.
During this period of celebration, Muslims sacrifice goats, sheep, lambs, and cows to represent Ibrahim's commitment to God.
Participation in the sacrificial festival is mandatory for all obedient Muslims that can afford to sacrifice an animal.
As part of their corporate social responsibility, Keda(Ghana) Ceramics Company Limited donated a bullock to the Kumasi Central Mosque through astute businessman Herbert Mensah to enhance the celebration of the Eid-ul-Adha.
Presenting the items to the leadership of the Kumasi central mosque on behalf of KEDA, King Edward of Hello FM and Prince Osei Sarpong(Baba Yara) of Kessben Media remarked that the yearly gesture by the company led by Mr. Mensah is in line with what he and the company’s long-held tradition of keeping a bond with the Zongo community that has always supported him during his days as Kotoko chairman, his activities with the May 9 Foundation and his efforts to build Ghana Rugby.
Herbert Mensah topped the donation up with an undisclosed amount as his support towards the Eid-ul-Adha celebration.
The Ashanti Regional Chief Imam, Sheikh Abdul Mumin Haroun who received the items on behalf of all Muslims at the Kumasi Central Mosque praised KEDA Company Limited and Herbert Mensah for their dedication and commitment to the Zongo community and the poor in general throughout the years.
