Gift A Quran Gift A Musalla Project [REPORT]

Date / Duration : 24 May to 22 June 2017

Many of us have to be told to respect our Qurans, or take them out to be read. This is a privilege many of us take lightly. In 2013, prior to the formation of Colours of Hope, a letter came through to Madrasah Ummul Hasanaat. The letter was from the Sakafia Students Association desperate for Qurans. Madrasah Ummul Hasanaat, (then) soon to be Colours of Hope, responded and delivered Qurans to Kumasi, Ghana in 2013.

Due to the great response we received in in June last year, Qurans were locally distributed as well as in Ghana.
This year during Ramadan of 2017 coinciding with the Islamic lunar year 1438, Colours of Hope concentrated on local distributions. There has been several requests for prayer mats (Musalla) hence the #GiftAQuran #GiftAMusalla project.
