Mustadafin Foundation has had its hand full through this two month period of the covid-19 pandemic. The numbers of recipients assisted has increased to 100 000 individuals in the short span of time.
With the drop to level 4 of the lockdown Mustadafin has been able to receive donations much better. This allowed the Foundation to call on more staff members back to work in order to increase the service delivery and meet some of the food relief requests. This assisted the Mustadafin Foundation to increase the awareness relating to covid-19 and distribute over 700 masks in different areas around Cape Town.
In addition to the recipients was the staff of the Mitchells Plain Hospital. Mustadafin provided 50 masks to the doctors. This was a way of showing support and appreciation for their efforts. “It is important to the Foundation to assist those going through a tough time. The medical staff are in the heart of this pandemic, in the front line and helping those in need.” said the director, Mrs Johnstone-Cassiem
Within two months Mustadafin held over 30 awareness campaigns on the virus, and demonstrating how people can make their own masks, distributed food parcels to 25 000 households, reaching more than 100 000 individuals across the Western Cape, this excludes the hot meals the organization prepares daily to over 15 000 people.
With all that has been done thus far, there are still many more families in desperate need and as an organisation that sees to the destitute, deprived the Foundation cannot see people go hungry. Mustadafin Foundation needs your help to reach those homes, those families who face their children and days with empty cupboards.
