- Shimon Ben-Shoshan, the Israeli ambassador also made a first historical visit to the Abuja National Mosque
- The packages which contain food and hygiene products were distributed in IDPs camp, widow shelters and orphanages
The Israeli embassy in Nigeria has shown love and kindness towards the nation amid a global fierce battle with the deadly coronavirus.
As a way to make the Muslims in the country have a happy Ramadan celebration, the mission house alongside some private organisations donated food packages and hygiene products to over 3,400 children in various Muslim communities.
It should be noted that the distribution was carried out at Internally Displaced Persons (IDP) camps, widow shelters, and orphanages.
A very historical thing that happened was that the Israeli ambassador to Nigeria, Shimon Ben-Shoshan, made his first visit to Abuja National Mosque.
The humanitarian gesture was carried out under the initiative tagged “Love Your Neighbour As Yourself - From the Jewish Community to the Muslim Community in Nigeria".
During his visit to the IDP camps, the ambassador expressed much hope that the Covid-19 pandemic will be over soon.
He also said that the mission house is very grateful for the opportunity to give out of the abundance they have equally received.
The initiative was among the events the embassy used to mark the 60 years anniversary of the cordial relationship between Nigeria and Israel.

Meanwhile, Legit.ng earlier reported that the Israel Institute for Biological Research created a novel disinfectant that kills 100% of bacteria and virus, including coronavirus.
The chairman of Tera Novel, the company behind the product, Keren Hazon, said the disinfectant works differently from thousands of others out there.
In talking about its production process, she said: "We also use hypochlorite, but in a very high [concentration] and we add some [additional ingredients] so that anywhere the disinfectant is sprayed, it becomes a very white film of gel which keeps the [material] on the surface for a while."
