Mustadafin Foundation will be hosting a toy run for the festive season.

The organisation’s focus is mainly on younger children and giving them a gift for Christmas. The gifts will be distributed from 27 November to Christmas Day.

Director of Mustadafin Foundation Ghairunisa Johnstone says they urge all Capetonians to make the festive season a special one for the children.

“Something I will never forget was when we gave a little boy a second-hand soft turtle toy – his first gift ever. He forgot about his food and cherished the toy the whole day. The impact of such a small gesture is immense in a child’s life,” says Johnstone.

The foundation is aiming to make 50 pots of hot food, which will be provided to underprivileged communities in the Cape Flats on Christmas Day.

“Each pot of food can feed up to 250 people, which means that 12 500 residents, including children and the elderly, will have a warm, full belly this festive season. We will also cook a special lunch for the Brooklyn and Tafelsig communities.”

If you are able to help and donate toys contact Mustadafin Foundation on 021 633 0010.
