On 16 February 2019 the Port Elizabeth SANZAF office in conjunction with Kwantu Game Reserve provided 60 children an opportunity to enjoy a Safari experience at one of South Africa`s finest wildlife reserves Kwantu Game Reserve. The children were invited from Madressahs located in different residential areas within the Nelson Mandela Metro supported by the Port Elizabeth office. Namely the Al-imaad Madressah in Kwazakhele, the Jamat Khana Madressah based in Newbrighton, one Madressah from Motherwell and the Marikana Resource Centre. Other children were from The Youth of Ubuntu and the Universal Islamic Cultural Trust Madressahs respectively.
The visit commenced at ten o`clock in the morning and finished at two o`clock in which the children were served with refreshments on arrival, were taken for a game drive to view and learn about wildlife, enjoy the 5 star hospitality experience and visit the animal sanctuary. In the course of their visit they received a three course meal and had an opportunity to interact and take pictures of the animals.
SANZAF and Kwantu Game Reserve hosted this initiative in appreciation of Madressah children who excel in their studies and have shown commitment to their work through attendance to the Madressahs everyday of the week. This visit is one various other initiatives the SANZAF office in Port Elizabeth hosts for Madressah children to encourage and celebrate their excellence and commitment to their studies.
As the festive season unfolds, dress codes and diets are bound to change in accordance with the celebrations that are always associated with the summer seasons. Unfortunately those who are less fortunate do not enjoy this privilege. The Sanzaf office in Port Elizabeth made a generous donation to the Tharros Child & Youth Care Centre on 14 December 2018. The Tharros Care Centre is a NPO dedicated to providing care and child development services to abandoned and destitute children between one and 12 years of age. This organisation is based in Hanky and has been providing a conducive environment for childhood development to underprivileged children for two years.
Theresa Sampson who is the founder of the Child Care Centre contact the Sanzaf office in Port Elizabeth for assistance towards clothing and food for the children residing in the Child Care Centre. On 14 December 2018 the Sanzaf office delivered clothes, bedding material and food parcels at the Care Centre. The items donated by Sanzaf will ensure that the Children who are living under the Care of the Tharros Centre are well fed and clothed while they remain in an environment that is conducive for childhood development.
This donation is part of various other initiatives the Sanzaf Office in Port Elizabeth conducts contributing towards the advancement of childhood development.
The Department of Social Development has published several reports which characterise the Eastern Cape as the second province with high rates of food insecurity in the Country. Various welfare organisations and NPO`s strive to provide assistance to communities which are affected by food insecurity to help overcome this situation.
For over thirty years the Sanzaf office in Port Elizabeth has been providing groceries to its recipients on a monthly basis in an effort to eradicate food insecurity. Recipients who benefit from this initiative are from low income households therefore they struggle to support themselves and their families with sufficient groceries that can sustain them for a month period. Predominantly pensioners and recipients with health challenges benefit from this initiative. On the 4th and 5th of December 2018 the Sanzaf office in Port Elizabeth distributed 45 food parcels to recipients residing Port Elizabeth.
The food hampers will assist the recipients and their families with adequate food supply for the rest of the festive season. The Sanzaf office in Port Elizabeth supports 105 recipients with food hampers in PE and Uitenhage. The areas where recipients who benefit from this initiative come include Arcadia, Missionvale, Bloemendal and Jacksonville.
Through support from current and prospective donors the Sanzaf office in PE aims to sustain this initiative to ensure that recipients from low income households receive adequate food supply.
