Conserveria Africana, distributors of the Gino brand of food products in Ghana on Tuesday donated several quantities of food products to the Muslim community at the central mosque in Kumasi in the Ashanti region to coincide with the celebration by Muslims worldwide of Eid Al-Adha, the holiest festival in the Islamic calendar.

Eid Al-Adha or the Festival of Sacrifice is celebrated to commemorate the obedience of Ibrahim in a four-day celebration that began on August 21 and will last until Saturday, 25 August.

The yearly ritual is considered a time to think of others as well as repenting for sins committed in the past.

The Festival of Sacrifice marks the end of the Hajj pilgrimage, where Muslims descend on Mecca. Muslims will sacrifice goats, sheep, lambs, and cows to represent Ibrahim’s commitment to God, where Allah came to Ibrahim in a dream and asked him to sacrifice his son Isma’il as an act of obedience to God.

Participation in the sacrificial festival is mandatory for all obedient Muslims that can afford an animal.

It is also mandatory for people with money to give an amount to charity, so less fortunate people can afford to join in on the celebration as well.

As part of their social corporate responsibility, Conserveria Africana donated an assortment of the Gino brands to the Kumasi central Mosque to enhance the celebration of the Eid Al-Adha.

King Edward of Hello FM in Kumasi, donated the Gino products together with a bullock to the Ashanti regional chief Imam on behalf of Conserveria Afriaca. He remarked that the gesture is in line with Conserver’s long held tradition of keeping a bond with the poor communities who have always supported the company through their patronage of the Gino food brands.

Receiving donation on behalf of the Muslim community, regional chief Imam Abdul Mumin praised Conserveria for their dedication and commitment to the zongo communities and the poor in general through out the years.

Thousands of Ghanaians including Ghana’s vice president Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia have joined millions of other Muslims from all over the world this year to fulfill one of the major pillars of Islam and to celebrate Eid al-Adha in the holy city of Mecca.
