December 10 was a good day for Aisha Mohammad, a widow, who received some food items from Farida Haruna, a graduate of AUN. Farida graduated in May 2018 with a concentration in Communications and Multimedia Design (CMD).
She implemented more than 10 projects within the Yola community during her stay in AUN.
She came all the way from Kaduna State to give succor to Aisha, who recently lost her husband and was left with nine children to cater for. Farida, who received the 2018 Community Service Award at AUN and founded the Inikpi Foundation in Kaduna, said that she discovered that many people do not live a favorable quality of life.
“With that, I have to give back to the society even with the little I have. It gives me peace of mind and will help me a lot in impacting people’s lives,” she said after presenting bags of rice, beans, and salt to the underserved family.
The widow and her children expressed gratitude to the Farida Haruna family for creating time to visit them. They also thanked AUN for creating the opportunity for students to show love to the less privileged.
Farida has also promised to extend the community service to other cities within Adamawa State and the country at large.
