Project H.E.L.P Report: Lockdown Hamper Drive No.2


As we reach day 8 of the Covid-19 Lockdown in South Africa, the Jamiatul Ulama KZN has been inundated with calls and messages for basic food requirements from all over the EThekwini Metropolitan. Many underprivileged and low income households who live on a “no work no pay” basis and self-employed individuals, are struggling to put food on their tables.


Alhamdulillah, the Jamiatul Ulama KZN Project H.E.L.P Team has been responding to the needs of our fellow South Africans from all religious and cultural backgrounds. The team has distributed food hampers in urban areas as well as the rural outskirts of Durban. The Jamiatul Ulama KZN has also teamed up with SANZAF and NMJ Islamic Trust to assist those in need during these trying times.



Listed below are some of the areas we distributed in thus far:


  • Nagina
  • Marian Ridge
  • Thornwood
  • Birchwood Park
  • Sunshine Area
  • Luganda
  • Sydenham & Surrounds


The EThekwini Municipality has erected temporary camps for the homeless and on a daily basis, Feed the Poor has taken on the momentous task of feeding in excess of 3500 homeless people daily with breakfast and supper. 


Alhamdulillah the Jamiatul Ulama KZN has come forward and arranged for rice, spices, chicken and water.



Serving humanity and representing the Muslim community would not be possible without the support of our generous donors, volunteers and service providers.


May Allah Ta’ala reward them abundantly and grant them the best of both worlds, Ameen.
