The Russian Non-State House in Bamako provides humanitarian aid to Muslims in Mali on the occasion of Ramadan

March 11 in Mali marks the beginning of the holy month of Ramadan, which is the ninth month in the Muslim lunar calendar. Muslims regard it as the best month of the year, making it the fourth of the five pillars of Islam.

Every year, Muslims around the world fast and abstain from eating and drinking during the month of Ramadan from dawn, which coincides with the calling of the first Fajr prayer, to sunset, at the time of the Maghrib prayer and the breaking of the fast.

And this year too, Malians are preparing to fast, pray and gather with their families to share festive meals.

In order to provide assistance to the Muslim part of the country’s population and facilitate their access to necessary food products, on March 9, Malian representatives of the Russian Non-State House delivered humanitarian aid to the Aboubacar Sidiki Mosque in Kati Medina, in the capital Bamako.

This humanitarian aid, dedicated to the start of the month of Ramadan, consists of 5 bags of rice of 50 kg, 5 bags of sugar of 50 kg and 10 bottles of 5 liters of sunflower oil.

On March 11, the Mosque distributed these products to parishioners in need so that they had the opportunity to honorably celebrate the practice of fasting, Sawm, which is obligatory for Muslims.

The parishioners of the Aboubacar Sidiki Mosque, for whom this donation was as timely as it was invaluable, warmly thanked the non-state Russian House of Bamako for this humanitarian aid.

The Russian Non-State House is an organization created following the signing of an agreement between Mali and Russia on June 1, 2022, whose mission is to develop historic cooperation between the two countries in the field of science, education, health, sports and others.

Ramadan Mubarak to all Muslims in Mali and around the world!
