The Ramadaan Diaries

WEEK ONE

21 July 2012

SATURDAY

We have an early morning, packing grocery parcels. Luckily there are volunteers to help us.

The afternoon is spent buying groceries for our Feed Your Neighbour campaign.

More areas will benefit from food or soup everyday than we could manage last year.

The rice is parboiled for the big pot of food that needs to be cooked tomorrow.

We receive invitations to eat at Wynberg Orphanage and Wynberg Boys’ High School. Wynberg is a really caring community.

SATURDAY

28 July 2012

Our HQ is abuzz with helpers and the spirit of giving. There are groups of people everywhere, some are packing parcels, some are cleaning vegetables and chicken and some are taking stock.

The plan is to cook 2 big pots of food- both for Mustadafin. Mustadafin will distribute the food to the most needy communities.
