IN the wake of the destruction caused by heavy rains, gale force winds and in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, Sanzaf has stepped up its Operation Winter Warmth efforts with the ­intention of providing warm, ­nutritious meals and blankets to those in need.

Operation Winter Warmth is a national initiative aimed at bringing hope to the elderly, men women and children.

This is done through outreach programmes and where those in need are provided with hot food for nourishment, blankets and grocery hampers due to food insecurity, in the communities that we serve.

During winter much emphasis is placed on providing sandwiches and soup to primary schools in the Cape Flats and in rural areas that require ­support from SANZAF. The COVID-19 pandemic has impacted on the way ­SANZAF liaises with schools and, as a result, provisions are now provided to local community structures and volunteers that prepare the meals for children and adults in need.

Our winter appeal welcomes goods in kind donations.

For as little as R300, you can make an impact by providing a family with a grocery hamper and R150 to purchase a blanket for a person experiencing homelessness to stay warm this winter.

The case workers at the South African National Zakah Fund offers a holistic service to members of the public, and each individual is assessed based on their need, and guided by the virtues of zakaah.

If you would like to assist and support Sanzaf, kindly contact us at 0216380965.

‘Whoever helps ease someone in difficulty, Allah makes it easy for him in this world and the hereafter.’ (Sahih Muslim)
