Overall, we have established more than 30 soup kitchens throughout the Peninsula and outlying areas of the Western Cape as well as Eastern Cape, KZN and Gauteng.
During the month of Ramadan we intensify these programs and try to feed people on a daily basis, as opposed to 2 -3 times per week outside of Ramadan.
Alhamdulillah this year we fed up to 2400 people daily during Ramadan from our various soup kitchens.
Soup Kitchen Distribution
Every site has been equipped with a gas stove, gas and cooking utensils. A local person has been empowered to do the cooking and is overseen by the feeding committee. Our Feeding programs include a Daily Program, an intensified Ramadan program and special programs on Eid-ul-Fitr. On a monthly basis, we also provide ingredients to two soup kitchens in dawah areas, i.e. De Doorns (Hassie Square) and Sandhills. Throughout the year there are also food hampers that we receive and these parcels are distributed mostly to our dawah areas. Also throughout the year, we have a weekly sponsor of 140 loaves of bread that are mainly distributed to our local madrasahs, Alhamdulillah
Qurbani Appeal 2018
Please donate generously for this worthy cause
As you may be aware, we have been running feeding programs in the impoverished areas for the past 15 years. We have established more than 30 soup kitchens throughout the Peninsula and outlying areas of the Western Cape as well as Eastern Cape, KZN and Gauteng. During the month of Ramadan we intensify these programs and try to feed people on a daily basis, as opposed to 2 -3 times per week outside of Ramadan. Over the past few years we have seen an increase in the number of destitute people, and this year is no exception. It is our intention to feed 2400 people daily from our various soup kitchens, but with the increasing numbers it is proving to be a challenging task. We collaborate with organizations such as SANZAF, Gift of the givers, Mustadaffin and private donors, but all of these organisations are stretched for resources.
Through Allah’s blessings and the generous support of our regular donors, who have been with us on this journey for many years, we have managed to meet the increasing demand. We have calculated that we will require and amount of R702, 000.00 to feed 2400 people daily during the month of Ramadan. This equates to R9.75 per person per night or R292.50 to feed 1 person daily for the entire month of Ramadan. Should we, by the Grace of Allah, raise more than this amount, we will utilize the excess for our feeding program outside of Ramadan.
It is our humble request that If you have any form of Zakaah, Sadaqah or Donations (cash or kind) and you wish to contribute to this worthy cause, to please contact any of the feeding committee members or deposit into account below:
