 project Iqraa Trust donates R 100 000 to Thanda After-Care

We are writing this letter in acknowledgement and appreciation of the funds totalling R 500,500.00 which were contributed by Iqraa Trust for use in response to the refugee crisis in Europe. We confirm that said funds will be used as part of the Al-Imdaad Foundations response to the ongoing refugee crisis. We are grateful for this contribution and pray that it will be a source of great relief and comfort for the refugee beneficiaries.

The generous contributions from Iqraa Trust will help our teams conduct further operations to address the needs of refugees in transit across Europe. Our teams have already been on the ground in Austria and Hungary in early September as refugees passed through these countries on their way to Germany and other northern European states. Since then Hungarian authorities have fenced off borders leaving many refugees stranded and living in the open and forcing them to look for alternative routes through Serbia, Slovenia and other countries.

The donation from Iqraa Trust will be used in a second distribution programme targeting refugees in transit through some of these countries. Specifically, food packs, clothing, and hygiene items will be handed out to refugees at transit points on the journey through Europe. These items will provide relief to refugees who often travel long distances on foot and sleep out in the open with limited access to daily essentials.

project Plettaid-Foundation

Iqraa Trust contributed R100 000 towards the operational costs of the Invicta House Women’s Shelter. This project is located in Plettenberg Bay in the Western Cape.

Plettenberg Bay’s economy relies on seasonal tourism which is the only real industry. The Town is recorded as having the second highest incidence of HIV in the Western Province. The town is affected by social illnesses such as interpersonal violence and substance abuse and there is high rate of lack of education. Compared with other districts, there is a good health and welfare infrastructure and accessibility to services and the momentum of development is being sustained with effort from civil society organisations such as The Plettaid Foundation.

The Plettaid Foundation- Invicta House Women’s Shelter will provide the Plettenberg bay area with:

  • Affordable and accessible home nursing for public patients.
  • Free hospice palliative care.
  • 24 hour shelter for women and children affected by domestic violence and abuse.

The Foundation aims to improve the quality of life and dignity in death through the provision of integrated community driven programmes.
