The Israeli embassy in Nigeria has shown love and kindness towards the nation amid a global fierce battle with deadly coronavirus.
As a way to make the Muslims in the country have a happy Ramadan celebration, the mission house alongside some private organisations donated food packages and hygiene products to over 3,400 children in various Muslim communities.
It should be noted that the distribution was carried out at Internally Displaced Persons (IDP) camps, widow shelters, and orphanages.
A very historical thing that happened was that the Israeli ambassador to Nigeria, Shimon Ben-Shoshan, made his first visit to Abuja National Mosque.
The humanitarian gesture was carried out under the initiative tagged “Love Your Neighbour As Yourself – From the Jewish Community to the Muslim Community in Nigeria”.
During his visit to the IDP camps, the ambassador expressed much hope that the Covid-19 pandemic will be over soon.
He also said that the mission house is very grateful for the opportunity to give out of the abundance they have equally received.
The initiative was among the events the embassy used to mark the 60 years anniversary of the cordial relationship between Nigeria and Israel.
