The company distributed on Friday, June 3, essential food items that adequately covered basic needs of around 1000 families at the El Jalle area of Beletwein, Hiiran .

Osman Dhagahow, head of Dahabshiil remittance presence in the Hiiraan, wished the beneficiaries well praying that no more calamities of this magnitude befall on families that have no recourse to alternatives to forestall them.

“Dahabshiil is forever ready to help out as quickly as can be in situations like this but we sincerely pray that Allah may preserve us from further exposure to natural disasters that none of us can adequately cover the human stress impacted,” he said.

Yesterday’s distribution followed a $120 000-donation the company made to the same area under the same circumstances a year or so back.vlcsnap-2016-06-04-17h13m29s520 vlcsnap-2016-06-04-17h12m37s201Beneficiaries gratefully welcomed the reprieve.
