The Holy Prophet Muhammad (SAW) emphasised:
"The best charity is to feed a hungry belly".
You responded to the cries of the hungry in the Pakistan Floods in Ramadaan 2010; in boats we reached thousands as children shouted "chaval (rice), chaval (rice). Came the famine in Somalia in Ramadaan 2011 the response was swift and timeous from the entire South African nation. Thousands of starving lives were saved. That generosity continued into Ramadaan 2012 as R13 million of supplies arrived in Mogadishu in 24 containers; 330 Masjids are supported with an iftar programme in Malawi benefitting an excess of 60 000 people; and iftar is served in Pakistan, Senegal, Mauritania, Ivory Coast, Puntland, Nigeria, Ethiopia, Zimbabwe, Mozambique and South Africa to thousands of Fasting people who otherwise would have had no means to break the fast. Eid Food Parcels are now being arranged in some of these countries.
And in this same Ramadaan 2012 we discovered 15 million hungry people in Yemen; a land and a people referred to by the Holy Prophet SAW as being "soft, gentle, pious and tender-hearted" and large numbers of whose people will be inhabitants of Jannah. What an honour to serve them. The first 16 containers of aid have already been loaded with more to follow. Your participation in all the endeavours is still welcome if you so desire.
In a unique event to uphold the dignity of the poor, Gawa Sayed, project manager for our Cape Town office, has come up with a novel idea to distribute new clothing, new shoes and hygiene packs for the poor and destitute today, on the eve of Lailatul Qadr (traditionally the 27th night is commemorated for that purpose). Our warehouse in 45 Knoll Avenue, Athlone, has been organised and adorned to display all these new items so generously donated by you. The poor will have a grand "shopping" experience choosing the right items for their families with which to celebrate Eid and give thanks to Allah for His generosity. The best part of the exercise; everything is FREE. If you want to be a part of the action be there at 2pm.
