#OPERATIONCOVID19 FUND LAUNCHED BY OPERATION SA AND SANZAF
A crowd funding initiative in conjunction with our COVID19 response campaign
Operation SA and the South African National Zakah Fund (SANZAF) have launched an emergency fundraising drive to assist with essential food items to the vulnerable and destitute during the 21-day national lockdown.
In a joint statement, Operation SA’s Yusuf Abramjee and SANZAF’s National Executive Board member and past Chairman, Shauket Fakie said: “it was time for a collective response to the emergency.”
The fund will collect non-Zakah donations from the public, procure the items from manufacturers and wholesalers and deliver them to the central Gauteng Government warehouse. The Department of Social Services will then distribute the items to the most vulnerable areas.
