The SANZAF staff organised a Childrens Day Programme for 3 Madaris in the Atlantis area: Madrassa Islamia, Masjiedul Umma and Owwal Masjied on Saturday, 3 November. The event was well attended and even featured a skit on Muharram which the children orchestrated for the entertainment of all.
As part of the Muharram 1435 celebrations, SANZAF embarked on a plan to educate children at Iqra Educare in Kenwyn about the environment and caring for nature.
Mualima Yasmine Razaaq treated the little ones with a practical example of Muharram as a time for growth... a time for renewal and a time for generosity.
The Phoenix Light Group for the physically challenged partnered with the Forget e Not Club in organising a Blind Navigators Rally which was aimed at creating awareness about individuals with disabiities.
60 teams of two took part in the rally which was attended and kickstarted by Durban Mayor's Office representative Fouzia Peer.
SANZAF Life Skills facilitator and Phoenix Light Group President Saffura Khan spearheaded the event, which SANZAF sponsored with goodie bag items, bottled water, participant tags, stickers and meals.
About 354 individuals partnered together to make the rally a success, this included volunteers, participants and marshalls.
