Samira Bawumia Supports Islamic Mission Secretariat Hospital Project With 1000 Bags Of Cement 

Mrs Samira Bawumia, the Second Lady of the Republic of Ghana, has pledged 1000 bags of cement support for the construction of Modern Islamic Hospital at Krobo-Techiman, in the Bono East Region. 

The 100 beds capacity Hospital project was an initiative of the Secretariat to enhance easy access to quality health care services delivery and support for national development. 

Mrs Bawumia gave the support when speaking on Sunday at Krobo-Techiman on as the Special Guest of Honor for the 24th Women’s Wing National Conference under the Islamic Mission Secretariat.

She commended the crucial role played by the Secretariat and the Women’s Wing for their active contribution to the development of not only Muslim communities but the nation at large.

It was a three-day conference, from Friday to Sunday under the theme: “Combating the negative effects of social media, the role of Muslim Woman”.

The conference aimed at sensitizing and guarding parents and all Islamic women to keep eye on their children and wards to desist from social vices and the negative influences and consequent effects of social media.

Mrs Bawumia said the role of a Muslim woman in combatting social media’s negative effects on the youth was a wake-up call to all across the country to be proactive in moderating the usage of social media by young persons under their care.

She stated, “In suratul Tahrim verse 6, Allah commands believers to not only protect themselves from punishment in the hereafter but includes a responsibility to protect our children as well”. 

“As Muslim women, our duty Allah requires of us is to ensure our children and other young people around us are not exposed to things and people who negatively affect them”. 

Addressing the conference earlier, Hajia Marriam Suleman Nketia, the General Secretary for the Wing commended successive governments for policy interventions such as the National Service Scheme, Youth Employment Agency, NABCO, You-Start among others and appealed for more job creation efforts in conjunction with the Private sector through the creation of enabling environment for graduates to better marry theory with practice to make them more employable after school. 

She stated the Mission was basically to promote unity among Muslims and non-Muslims for harmonious and peaceful coexistence, renew the faith of Muslims to be more committed to the rules of Islam and facilitate fundraising for developmental projects.

She said the Women`s Wing formed 27 years ago was to champion the crucial needs of women in achieving the mission`s broader objectives which include support for the needy and the vulnerable in society and engaging in vocational activities to provide livelihoods for the less privileged.
