In the name of God, Most Gracious, Most Merciful
As you are aware, the xenophobic violence has left an estimated 25 000 victims displaced, destitute and in despair. We can only but pray to the Almighty for a solution to this political and humanitarian crisis.
The City of Cape Town’s Disaster Management has appointed Mustadafin Foundation, along with four other NGOs, to provide meals and blankets for the displaced people. This co-ordination aims to ensure that all communities are well provided for in this trying time and that no clashes occur between NGOs and other relief organizations.
Working in Harmony Park, Phillipi, Mitchells Plain, Stellenbosch and other areas, Mustadafin provides cooked meals, twice a day, every day to over 10 000 of the displaced victims with. (See full list below). We are also providing victims with clothing, toiletries, baby packs and other essentials as donations from the public are received.
But the work is not over. And while donors have been very generous in terms of food stuffs, the Foundation is desperately in need of volunteers to aid in the cooking and food distribution.
For a list of ways you can help, please scroll to the bottom of this mail.
Many of the victims have lost hope in the South African government to solve this crisis, some have threatened to go on a hunger strike to get the United Nations to step in. we are appealing to all in our country to, in any way possible, help solve the xenophobia outbreak. Help us help our neighbours from Africa. Support Mustadafin’s Xenophobia Relief appeal.
