Mabohanday, a nonprofit cultural organization formed in 1982 by a group of Sierra Leoneans belonging to the Limba tribe in Sierra Leone who are currently residing in the USA has between June 2nd to June 21 June donated an estimated 135 bags of rice to 6 Limba mosques across the capital, Freetown.

The 6 Limba mosques which include Majid Amin in  Sander Street, Masjid Salam in Brookfields, Masjid Baiti  Nurr in Peacock Lane Foura Bay Community, Limba Mosque in Taylor Street, Masjid Imadu Deen in Kuntorloh and Masjid Isha in Palmer Street Wellington all benefitted from the donation of Mabohanday.

Meanwhile it could be recalled that last year Mabohanday distributed a total sum of 60 bags of rice to Muslims during the holy Month of Ramadan. Though Mabohanday is a Limba organization, it also helps everyone irrespective of tribe or religion. This is why Mabohanday has been helping Muslim and Christians in Sierra Leone with issues regarding scholarship to students and supporting the construction or renovation of mosques.

The organization, according to their vision paper was born out of the desire to bring together people of Limba descent, to work for the development of the tribe in particular and Sierra Leone on a broader scope.

The organization’s main vision is to build a stronger Limba community within and outside Sierra Leone, with a mission to preserve, enhance and perpetuate the unique and distinctive cultural and traditional values of the tribe.

Consequently the organization has accomplished in areas of providing medical gloves and other medical items to hospitals in Sierra Leone; providing scholarships, textbooks and other school items to schools and colleges in  Sierra Leone;  Providing cash donation to support mudslide and flood victims in Sierra Leone; and  providing financial and humanitarian aid to mosques and churches in Sierra Leone.

The organization aims to continue supporting community development projects geared towards alleviation of poverty and human suffering in Sierra Leone.

Mabohanday currently has about 500 members in 7 states in the USA and also in U.K.
