MNLF Children Convenor Nur Danial said the activities were part of the Moro youth’s noble contribution to the fulfillment of one of the greatest pillars of Islam through the conduct of outreach mission and group visitations in the different communities in Zamboanga City.

At least 100 families were served in the selected communities who received dry goods like rice and other foodstuff to include bottled drinking water during the Iftar or “Pagbukah’ according to Danial.

While during the Hariraya Puasa celebration on August  19, the group took time out to serve streetchildren in the city with meals and other goodies.

Muslim communities the group visited for the Iftar included the following; Barangays Sta. Barbara, San Roque, Tetuan, and  Campo Muslim.

A visit was also made to MNLF Chairman Prof. Nur Misuari at his residence in Barangay San Roque where some leaders and members of the MNLF were also present.

The group also joined in the conduct of Inter-school Islamic lectures in the different colleges and universities  in the city. Among them are ZCSPC, Western Mindanao University (WMSU), Universidad del Zamboanga (UZ), and Universal College (UZ) .
