Ramadan Iftaar Programme
The Imam of Happy Valley, Sh. Ebrahim Mavela approached the MYM for assistance as his musjid ran out of food for Iftaar and Suhur during the last few days of Ramadan. The MYM approached Africa Muslims Agency (AMA) for assistance and without hesitation they provided the necessary food requirements to the Happy Valley community.
This community is often forgotten by many because they are a very small Muslim community living on the outskirts of Cape Town and also not popular like the more established townships.
The Iftaar the MYM facilitated with the help of AMA made us realise that there are other issues that needs to be addressed in this community including the organising of programmes and halaqat at the musjid.
There is a Somali community in the area doing informal business, whom the MYM intends meeting with and encouraging them to contribute financially as well as with Islamic Development and Da’wah.
The MYM and the community of Happy Valley would like to thank AMA for their contributions. Your kindness and immediate response towards this community’s needs during Ramadan is extremely appreciated.
