SANZAF Operation Winter Warmth Launch 2014

The South African National Zakah Fund (SANZAF) has just launched their 2014 edition of the annual Operation Winter Warmth (OWW) Campaign... just in time for what seems to be the start of winter.

Learners of the Huguenot Primary School in Tafelsig, Mitchells Plain were treated to a hearty breakfast by SANZAF members. The 1,126 learners were also gifted a woolly beanie, scarf and gloves. This will ensure that these young ones are kept a little warmer during the winter season.

This is just the first school which SANZAF has identified for the Operation Winter Warmth 2014. Three more schools will be attended to within the coming months, including Hindel Road Primary School in Belhar, Hazendal Primary School in Athlone, as well as Rio Grande Primary School in Manenberg.

SANZAF aims to reach 5,000 learners through this initiative in 2014. But, another aspect of Operation Winter Warmth which SANZAF Western Cape will be tackling in 2014 is the Adopt-A-Gogo Campaign (more details to follow!).

SANZAF – Innovative thinking, 40 years and beyond

The South African National Zakah Fund (SANZAF) has recently added the social media aspect to the lines of communication with our community. This allows for free and easy access to information and feedback on any SANZAF related query entering our inbox via Facebook or Twitter.

This year, SANZAF celebrates 40 years of service – reaffirming our commitment to those in need. We aim to commemorate the organisation in its entirety, saluting those who provided us with the opportunity to grow, thereby allowing SANZAF to become the longest serving Zakah institution in Southern Africa.

But, despite the positives added to SANZAF, we continue to require your assistance, not just with Zakah, but also Sadaqah. Help us to change more lives by signing up for a SANZAF Sadaqah debit order now or make a once off contribution online (coming very soon!).

Your assistance will allow SANZAF to carry out plans to provide communities with a means to become self-sustainable, reaching goals never thought possible.

In 2013, 550 students were assisted nationally by the SANZAF Education Empowerment and Development (SEED) Programme, totalling R10 million. Your contribution made this possible!

Jazak Allah, to our valued contributors, partners and recipients for the ongoing support over the last 40 years. We pray that our relationship with you continues to grow in future.
