Success Story 8

Nomzamo* is a nine year old girl who stays with her mother and 17 year old sister. They live in a shack in an informal settlement, south of Johannesburg. Her father died leaving mom and daughters to fend for themselves.

Through Islamic Relief’s intervention programme, Nomzamo* and her family receives a monthly food hamper, school uniforms and stationery and other basic necessities allowing them to live a dignified life.

Nomzamo* attends the aftercare at the Osizweni Community Centre where she has developed a love for reading. Through the tuition programme, her literacy and numeracy levels have improved.

Islamic Relief South Africa’s work with orphan and vulnerable children, like Nomzamo*, can only be made possible through the support of our loyal donors.

Please do your part and empower other children to live a dignified life by donating towards the Orphan Endowment Waqf Fund.
