Our Crisis Response in South Africa

The Prophet (saw) said, ‘Give charity without delay, for it stands in the way of calamity’. (Tirmidhi)

In the last few weeks, the Coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic has brought the world to a standstill, causing businesses to close and forcing many to lose their income.

The virus has already claimed the lives of thousands around the world, and many more are expected to be affected in the coming weeks and months.

For many vulnerable South Africans living on the streets or in informal settlements, this is an especially worrying time. These communities are most at risk of contracting the virus and many of them have little to no access to clean water or healthcare facilities.

Despite the challenges of a nationwide lockdown, we remain committed to helping those most in need. Our teams on the ground are working in townships and remote areas of the country to support the helpless.

In partnership with the Department of Health, our immediate efforts in South Africa include:

• Distributing food hampers to the elderly
• Providing door-to-door deliveries of essential medication to those most in need
• Sourcing and supplying hand sanitizer and face masks to vulnerable communities
• Giving immune booster supplements in old-age homes

The number of people affected by the Covid-19 pandemic continues to rise each day. The situation is ever-changing and incredibly challenging.

Your generous contribution will make a significant difference to those most in need and help save thousands of lives. Please donate now.
