Zakat and Sadaqat Foundation will on Saturday, 3rd Ramadan distribute Zakat worth N5.82 million in forms of cash and materials to the needy.
The 9th Zakat Distribution will kick off at 11:00am at the Multipurpose Hall of Western Sun International Hotel, Aisu/NYSC Camp Road, Ede.
The Osun State Administrative Officer, Mallam Moshood Olaoye, said a week long humanitarian programme which has already featured an Iftar for the Ilesa Prison Inmates on Thursday, Senior Citizens Support for selected aged in Osogbo and Ede will also take place on Sunday.
This will then be followed by presentation of valuable materials to FOMWAN Orphanage Home in Osogbo on Monday before another Iftar that will be conducted for the Ile-Ife Prison inmates Tuesday.
Olaoye said the amount spent so far are the donations of Zakat collected from few Muslims in the state.
