Festival to raise funds for Islamic relief

2019-03-19 06:00

Come Saturday 23 March, Western Cape volunteers of local emergency relief charity, Islamic Relief SA will be launching their first ever Festival Day to bring the local community together in a spirit of giving – in this case raising funds for women and children caught in countries of conflict.

Islamic Relief SA is just one of 44 operations under the IR Worldwide banner that responds to global emergencies and disaster relief situations.

Many of these operations, including South Africa, are aided by a passionate network of volunteers ranging from young professionals, students, retired workers and those keen to apply their resources to help make the world a better place.

Since it opened its doors in 1984, Islamic Relief has saved over 117 million lives.

Events and Volunteer Coordinator Taskeen Barday is ecstatic at the strides volunteers have made: “It takes a lot of work; personal and professional commitment to pull off an event like this - and the real beauty of it is that it is all going to towards helping others - saving lives all across the world.”

The picnic-fair style event will take place at the Santos Soccer Grounds in Imam Haron Road and starts at 10:30.

“There will be carnival rides for the kids, a petting zoo, face painting and a host of other activities to keep youngsters occupied,” says Barday.

There are still a few slots open for non-food vendors and all local and small business owners to join in on the event.

It is hoped that the event becomes an annual fixture.
