The Mustadafin Foundation is again hoping to put smiles on the faces of vulnerable children and orphans this festive season.
Every child deserves a happy, healthy childhood and the opportunity to build a brighter future. Let’s share the blessings by giving special educational gifts to children in need.
When considering the Western Cape alone, orphans and vulnerable children are faced with numerous challenges such as high levels of poverty, living in child-headed households and suffering from trauma associated with drug and alcohol abuse, gangsterism and crime.
Mustadafin Foundation has taken up the battle to protect South Africa’s orphans by establishing programmes that help reduce the rate of poverty in communities and improve their lives in practical ways. One of the initiatives, is proving a child with stationery for school.
The Mustadafin Back-to-School Drive aims to assist 500 orphans and vulnerable children for year 2022 within the arears of the Western Cape. By giving stationery gifts to children, it will ease the financial pressure put on poor households to purchase essential school items at the start of the new school year. Last year amidst the pandemic, we were still able to support 500 learners.
We are appealing to the public for help in proving essential stationary for the Back-to-School Drive.
You can buy a hamper for a child in any grade, packaged and labelled outside with the grade and motivational message on it.
Alternatively, one can contribute any of the following stationary items:
Pritt glue sticks HB Pencils 2 Quire hardcover books Flip Files Pens Exam Pads Highlighters 72 exercise books Sharpeners Reams Of Paper Colour pencils
The Back-to-School Drive aims to give children a head start leading into the new school year.
The collection drive runs until 21 January 2022.
