The water crisis and challenge faced by our brothers and sisters in Cape Town has been well documented.
Severe drought and climate change has resulted in a severe water shortage which has led to strict water restrictions and shortages in and around the Western Cape.
The dire situation directly effects our Western Cape offices who rely on a constant water supply for their monthly feeding schemes which benefit thousands of needy people every month. A plan for providing water to the elderly who simply cannot get to distribution points has been implemented and further increased the need.
As a national organisation we are urging you to assist our fellow South Africans by helping them reach their monthly target amount of R150 000 for water. This amount is used to acquire water from other SANZAF regions across the country and will allow SANZAF Western Cape to continue their much needed efforts every month.
Be part of the solution and continue to make a difference in the lives of over 4000 individuals every month!

SANZAF is a faith based socio-welfare and educational organisation which for the last 42 years, has been assisting the poor and needy throughout South Africa. Apart from welfare and developmental services rendered to the community, SANZAF arranges other events such as advocacy programmes for the physically challenged. In these ventures SANZAF often partners with other organizations, in this instance, the Phoenix Light Group for the physically challenged. Having partnered with the Phoenix Light Group on past events, such as, International Day of the Disabled, Blind Navigators Rally and White Cane Day, SANZAF are confident of another successful event on the 27 January 2018.
The 27th of January will be commemorated as World Braille Day; Braille is a type of dotted writing that the visually impaired utilize to read. On this day SANZAF will host the Louis Braille Programme to commemorate the visually impaired. This initiative will take place at Durban’s North Beach Park (Near Milky Lane) from 2 pm on Saturday, 27 January 2018.
Madrassa An-Noor for the Blind will be in attendance for the Braille Reading Recitals at which experienced braille readers will be sharing their knowledge and techniques with learners from the Madrassa in order to enable them to enhance their reading skills. In addition, educational games such as monopoly and scrabble have been adapted for the visually impaired to enable them to engage in these educative activities which serves to enhance their brail reading skills.
Please join us for this programme and acquire an insight into the visually impaired. You can make a difference by sponsoring a braille Quran or Book for the visually impaired.
