Our Crisis Response in South Africa and Worldwide

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

The spread of the Coronavirus in South Africa has left many of us saddened, isolated and worried for our loved ones. Our country has millions of vulnerable people who live in informal settlements and face economic barriers that limit their access to healthcare facilities. The spread of this disease amongst these communities can be highly deleterious and they are in urgent need of your help.

Here at Muslim Hands, we believe that now is the time for solidarity, and we hope that you will join us in lending a helping hand to all those in need of assistance during this testing time.

The situation is ever-evolving but with your support, we can provide aid to communities that are most in need. We have already started coordinating with the Department of Health to organize an efficient response to the pandemic by providing:

• Delivery of food hampers to the elderly during this crisis
• Provide door to door deliveries of medication to the elderly and patients
• Distribute hand sanitizers in the less fortunate communities
• Distribute immune booster supplements in old age homes
