Surging household poverty in Eagle Park is set to be eased with the opening of a new soup kitchen.
The CTIEC - Cape Town Islamic Educational Centre will officially start a Soup Kitchen on Thursday 5 September 2013.
The news comes after it emerged that the number of people accessing soup kitchens across Cape Town has more than doubled in just few months.
“I had been noticing that everyone seemed to have gotten so busy and forgotten how it used to be, when neighbors helped neighbors and communities really embraced those in need,” Mentioned Moulana Sayed Imraan (Principal Of CTIEC) .
Reducing poverty and ending hunger seem to be becoming more difficult goals to achieve. Although the world is a lot richer today than it was a decade ago, the numbers of poor and hungry people are increasing.
Moulana Sayed Imraan Said, "One of the central principles of Islam is helping others".
CTIEC Soup Kitchen aims to help the poor, disabled & anyone who is in need.
The Soup Kitchen will currently operate every Thursday from 12 Noon at the Masjidul Kareem Centre (11th Ave, Eagle Park) .
The CTIEC Hopes that the Soup Kitchen Will continue for many years to come and will also achieve its goal to Eliminate Hunger in the community .
