The elderly play an important part in our lives because they are our parents and our first teachers. They teach us how to love and care but most importantly - how to give.
We need to care for our elders because they deserve to be cared for, therefore it is important for us to give back. SANZAF Gauteng is well underway with their Adopt-a-Granny campaign today at Fashion World in Randfontein and Vereeniging, where 360 grannies will benefit, Insha-Allah.
Adopt-a-Granny campaigns are running concurrently across South Africa today, in Pietermaritzburg and Durban respectively.

SANZAF Operation Winter Warmth Adopt-a-Granny campaign, honouring our elders.
Operation Winter Warmth Blanket Drive at SANZAF Athlone, Cape Town office.
The generations before us worked tirelessly to give us the life we have today, a life full of opportunities, comfort and privilege. As they grow older, it is imperative that as the next generation, we return the favour by looking after the elderly and caring for them. Insha-Allah, this will resonate with many of us.
SANZAF Pietermaritzburg will be kicking off the weekend with Operation Winter Warmth’s Adopt-a-granny Initiative where 30 grannies and 10 grandpas will receive a voucher up to the value of R 1 000 each to spend at ASMALLS, located in 455 Church St, Pietermaritzburg. They will be able to purchase sleepwear, slippers or jerseys. This programme falls under the SANZAF Operation Winter Warmth, Adopt-a-granny initiative. Volunteers from Nizamia Islamic school and Maritzburg Muslim school for girls will be there to assist the elderly Insha-Allah.
There are many under-resourced people who do not earn enough to sustain them with even the basics. With the impending chilly winter ahead SANZAF will be hosting a Blanket Drive on Sat, 13 May 2017 at our SANZAF Athlone office in Thornton Road.
