Three Atfal from Oda East and Oda Camp Jama’ats joined in a Waqar-e-Amal exercise (Dignity of Labour) organized by the Eastern Zonal Qaid on Sunday, November 26, 2017. The aim of the activity was to fill potholes on the Quarters-Traffic light stretch of road in Akim Oda to prevent any form of accident by road users.
The Atfal namely Messrs Masroor Ahmed Okwan, Abdus-Salam Okwan and Abdul Rahim Ismael carried the wheelbarrow, pickaxe, shovels and buckets to the point where the Waqar-e-Amal began.
They carried the stones and sand dug by the Khuddam to fill the potholes. In addition, they desilted the chocked gutters to allow free flow of water.
After the 3-hour exercise, about a kilometer of potholes was filled. Road users showered praises on the Atfal and requested the blessings of Allah on them.
Their participation was important to train them to keep their surroundings clean and have the interest of the communities they live in at heart in accordance with one of the sayings of the Holy Prophet Muhammad (may the peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) ‘Love for one’s country is part of faith’.
The exercise was blessed with the participation of the Akim Oda Circuit Missionary Murabbi Mubashir Okwan, the Akim Oda Circuit Qaid Mr. Ishaque K. Baah and the Eastern Zonal Qaid Mr. Malek A. Affum.
Some road users made donations to support the work done. The Assemblyman for the area, popularly known as Castro, commended the members for the good job done and also made a donation for breakfast.
