Save Lives This Winter


Here are ways you can help

Give the gift of warmth

The Prophet (saw) said, “Whoever removes a worldly hardship for a believer, Allah will remove one of the hardships of the Day of Resurrection for him.” [Bukhari]

During the winter season, thousands of impoverished, needy, and vulnerable South Africans endure immense suffering due to their inability to afford winter essentials and stay warm. For the homeless population, winter becomes particularly brutal as many reside in makeshift shelters that offer little protection against harsh storms.

For many years, Muslim Hands has been spearheading the Out in the Cold campaign to address this pressing issue. Since its inception, we've reached out to over 27,000 vulnerable South Africans, including the elderly, disabled, widows, and orphans, providing them with vital assistance. Through the generosity of donors like you, our teams have been able to extend support to families across South Africa, offering essential items such as blankets, beanies, hot meals, and warm clothing

This year, our goal is to continue aiding the neediest and most vulnerable individuals across with your generous contributions. Your donations can make a significant impact by providing essential winter supplies like hot meals, blankets, and beanies, thereby preventing the onset of pneumonia or hypothermia.

Your support for our winter appeal could mean everything for the homeless, elderly, and destitute members of our community. It could be the difference between life and death for those trapped in the cycle of poverty. By following the Sunnah of the Prophet (saw) and extending a helping hand to those in need, you can contribute to keeping them warm, safe, and alive throughout the winter season. Donate today and make a tangible difference in someone's life.
