As the Kensington-based Independent Women’s Empowerment Bond (Iweb) wraps up its year of activities, its co-founder, Wiedah Gabier would like to thank everyone who supported her initiatives.

Iweb runs several programmes to support women, children and the elderly.

Mentioning Iweb’s recent highlight, she says: “Firstly we need to thank God and each one that made our seniors event a major success. Iweb could not have done it without our sponsors. We started our first Muharram (New Year’s event) with a few seniors and children from Kensington, Factreton and Al Noor Orphanage in Woodstock at Shawco Hall.”

Its most recent event was a senior’s outing at the Katzenberg Estate in Pella on Saturday 12 October where senior citizens received treats and enjoyed a day away from their homes.

Wiedah says: “Iweb gave them a savoury breakfast box, lunch, dessert and a cake box and the eldest seniors from 83 years and up received handmade luxuries.”

She says the elders were between the ages of 65 and 102 and all enjoyed the day.

Farouk Hassen from Steenberg says the senior’s day was a success. “Wiedah, this year you definitely deserve first prize. I don’t think we expected the incentives. I know everyone had a fabulous day, especially the senior citizens from Steenberg.” Farouk also thanked everyone who supported Wiedah.

Another grateful elder is Soraya Johnson from Delft. She says: “We had a full day of fun. Thank you, Iweb, Wiedah, her mom, aunty Jasmine Ratcliff, and all sponsors, volunteers and Cass Isaacs, the owner of Katzenberg Estate. May Allah continue to guide and protect you and your families, bless you with good health and prosperity. May your organisations grow from strength to strength.”

Iweb is already planning for the new year and has announced that it will be hosting a joint event on Sunday 2 February.

This will be a children’s fun day and a back-to-school campaign.
