In light of the increasing poverty levels in our country, SANZAF Western Cape is pleased to announce the launch of the Shafaqah Initiative. “We believe the launch of SANZAF’s Shafaqah initiative will give us a more sustainable means of income to evenly extend our relief efforts throughout the year” commented Yasmina Francke, General Manager of SANZAF Western Cape.
This launch is a response to a challenge that the organisation received from Sheikh Ebrahim Gabriels, a prominent figure in the Muslim community, at the closure of SANZAF’s Operation Ramadan earlier this year. Sheikh Gabriels commented on the phenomenal impact SANZAF was able to make during the month of Ramadan through the obligatory charitable payments received from the many loyal supporters and various Masajid in its wide network across the Western Cape, Boland and the Garden Route.
