For the past six years, Sheikh
Ridwan and Alpha Radio have been feeding thousands of orphans during Eid-ul-Fitr.
But Sheikh Ridwan wants to extend
his works by building an orphanage to support orphans.
“This year, we are supporting about
5,000 people, including orphans and widows with bags of rice, sugar, chicken
and cash. After six years of doing this during Eid-ul-Fitr, we want to build an
orphanage so that we can properly take care of orphans,” he said.
Sheikh Ridwan warned that
miscreants would mislead orphans to become criminals if society neglects them.
“This is what we want to prevent
and so I am appealing to the public to give us the needed support to realize
this ambition,” he added.
