About Us

Work locally is in obligation,
Work abroad is a responsibility.

The organization was founded in OCTOBER 1992 when some of our members went to help with the Somalian refugee crisis in Kenya. We supplied food and helped in the building of huts for the refugees. A borehole rig was sent to Kenya because of the continuous drought in North Eastern Kenya. It’s task was the drilling of boreholes and supplying water in that area. After the experience gained there and realizing the need for major relief work needed in South Africa, especially amongst the indigenous people, we decided to concentrate our efforts here at home as the organization is run by South Africans for South Africans. This led to the formulation of our policy statement.

Our regular annual projects are:

  1. QURBANI – We provide a service to our sponsors by doing their Qurbani on their behalf. The meat is distributed to the poor and destitute in the country where the Qurbani is done.
  2. WINTER WARM – Blankets are distributed to the needy during the cold winter months.
  3. RAMADAAN HAMPERS – Food hampers are distributed to the impoverished during the month of Ramadaan. This is food for Iftaar and Sehri. Eid hampers are also given so that they could have a good Eid meal.
