The South African National Zakah Fund (SANZAF) is pleased to announce the financial results of its period ended 30 April 2018/14 Shabaan 1439.

“We are eternally grateful to our donors, whose support of our projects and programmes has resulted in SANZAF collecting a total of over R133 million during the reporting period, amid a challenging economic environment,” says SANZAF National Chairperson, Shauket Fakie.

Our Zakah income for this period amounted to R96 million, compared to R111 million in the previous year which, along with our Non Zakah income, enabled us to make a significant impact on the lives of the poor and needy.

The past year has indeed been one of renewed affirmation for SANZAF, as we continue to actively fulfil our mandate to effect meaningful and sustainable change through development and relief.

“We are pleased to report that the proportional distribution of total funds collected, has increased from 91.5%, in the previous year, to 98.2%. This increased distribution is reflected in our empowerment initiatives, which give credence to SANZAF’s new brand positioning of embodying hope in all we do,” added Fakie.

It is noteworthy to mention that our expenditure on the SANZAF Education, Empowerment and Development (SEED) Programme amounted to R27.7 million, which was invested in a number of initiatives ranging from bursaries for tertiary education to development projects that have enabled beneficiaries to become self-sufficient.

The South African National Zakah Fund (SANZAF) in its endeavours to provide relief and assistance to the poor and needy, appreciates the importance of social stability in order to effect positive change.

In offering its support to the Cape Accord, SANZAF sought to uphold the dignity of human beings, fostering understanding and projecting a positive image of Islam. Whilst these factors are instrumental to social cohesion and are aligned to the organisation's values, the Cape Accord in itself, was met with dissenting views from various communities and Ulama fraternities.

Shauket Fakie, SANZAF National Chairperson commented: "After wider consultation and due consideration, we are withdrawing our support of the Cape Accord. We are doing so for the very principles that we supported the document initially - to promote peace, harmony, tolerance, mutual respect and compassion".

With Eid-ul-Fitr a few days away, all efforts at SANZAF continue to be focussed on the distribution of over 23 000 fitrah hampers throughout the country to ensure that no Muslim goes wanting on the joyous day of Eid-ul-Fitr.
