A ‘SHAM-E IFTAR’ at Markaz Darul Yatama (orphanage for boys and girls) in Goalpara, Assam was beautifully organised by the Indian Army on Saturday 9th June 2018. Markaz Darul Yatama, Goalpara (MDYG) is one of the six orphanages run by the famous NGO Markazul Ma’arif, a unit of Ajmal CSR, in Assam and Northeast India.
Important officials from Goalpara district administration, social workers, doctors and educationists graced the occasion. AIUDF General Secretary and MLA Hafiz Bashir Ahmad Qasmi who is also the founder principal of MDYG was present to welcome all the guests and Army Jawans along with orphanage staff and children.
In-Charge of MDYG Mufti Saaduddin Qasmi said, “We, with all our children (orphan boys and girls) and staff members, male and female, enjoyed the programme and the Sham-e Iftar a lot. We offer our hearty thanks to Indian Army, especially to Captain Vishal Sharmah and Commanding Officer Colonel Vivek Bhat for taking this pleasing initiative for our little angels and managing everything till the end.”
This Iftar party under the name of Sham-e Iftar was organised by the Army Camp, placed in Goalpara of Assam, especially for the orphan inmates at MDYG. Markaz Darul Yatama students take part in each year’s Independence Day and Republic Day celebrations at the Army Camp since 1998 and they have a reputation of winning prizes in ‘Parade’ while competing with the local Army school and big branded schools of the district. The humane gesture and this loving move by the Army Camp Balijana was very pleasing for the local people. Orphan children were happy and exited for meeting, talking and finding Army Jawans standing in their side.
