Lagos, Nigeria

As the world rallies against the Coronavirus Pandemic, the Muslim Coalition Against COVID-19, a national coalition of 46 Islamic organizations across the country, has launched a N500 million appeal fund for its intervention and relief works in Nigeria.

The coalition has put together a series of far-reaching programmes to complement ongoing government efforts at mitigating the impacts of the disease and the lockdown on the populace.

As a start, four states of the federation have been identified and selected for a pilot scheme before the subsequent roll out across the entire country.

Through the coalition members and as a group, the coalition will appeal for funds from Muslim Nigerians home and abroad.

To ensure effectiveness, efficiency and transparency of fund mobilization and relief operations, the coalition has constituted eight committees manned by experienced Muslim professionals, technocrats and academics from various backgrounds nationwide.

The committees include Audit, Account, Publicity, Logistics, Fund Mobilization, Medicals, Government Liaison and Monitoring and Evaluation.

In the coming days, the coalition will unveil its work plan, programme schedule and its vision to stand side-by-side with the Nigerian people to win the fight against COVID-19 insha Allah.
