DOWN THE MEMORY LANE: ITHNA-ASHERI UNION ORGANIZES CHARITY WALK TO RAISE FUNDS FOR ALAWI FLATS AND FOUNDATION STONE LAYING
A charity walk was organized by the Ithna-Asheri Union of Dar es Salaam on 25th December 1980 to raise funds for the Alawi flats to accommodate the needy and deserving members of our community.
Over 250 walkers took part and a handsome amount of T.Shs. 1,150,000/= was collected through sponsorships. The age of the walkers ranged from four years to over sixty. They walked 15 kms from Dar es Salaam mosque to the University of Dar es salaam. The host at the university was Marhum Al-Haj Mohsin Allidina where the walkers were provided with refreshments.
To mark the success of the event all the walkers and their sponsors were honored to a dinner party at the boarding house on 17th January 1981. Prizes were awarded to the winners by the then president of DSM Jamaat, Alhaj Mohamed G.M Dhirani.
