Religious leaders and students from the Cape Town Islamic Educational Centre (CTIEC) in Eagle Park took to the streets to distribute bottled water to needy residents in surrounding communities on Monday afternoon.

More than 4400F of water were distributed in Pelican Park, Eagle Park, New Horizons and Lotus River on the day.

“The aim is to distribute much more to the community while educating the groups on the importance of saving water at this crucial time.

“The CTIEC embarked on this campaign based on the words of Prophet Muhammad (pbuh): ‘a drink of water is the best charity’,” says centre representative Ridwaan Mohamed.

Water was also made available at the centre’s offices in 11th Avenue, which saw hundreds of locals lining up to get their share. An old age home in Lotus River was also among those that benefited from the water drive.

“CTIEC is a non-profit multifaceted organisation in Cape Town catering for the educational, social and welfare needs within the community.

“We thank staff, volunteers and donors for their continuous support and commitment to serving the community.”

Mohamed says the organisation’s water project will continue within the next few weeks and locals are welcome to contact their offices for more information.
