Fun-filled fundraiser in Macassar for local needy

Al-Mohsineen, a non-profit company based in Wynberg, Cape Town, hosted a fundraising day, with loads of activities, for children of an orphanage and a madressah in Macassar on Saturday 3 October.

Founded by a former Macassar resident, Shanaaz Benjamin, with the assistance of directors Farah Abrahams of Wynberg and Muhsin Bhamjee of Johannesburg, the organisation offers support to the underprivileged and homeless in the greater Cape Town and Johannesburg areas.

“Our belief is that if one can do something good then together we can do something great,” an Al-Mohsineen statement said. “With the vulnerable becoming the majority and no longer the minority it has become everyone’s responsibility to assist where they can. It is in this spirit that Al-Mohsineen (The Doers of Good) was established.”

The organisation has conducted several charity drives so far, including a beach clean-up, a wellness day visit to an old-age home and food, book and mask donations to orphanages, edu-cares as well as a primary schools.

“Al-Mohsineen has decided to host a fun day for the children of Macassar,” the statement continued. “The residents of House of Grace, run by Na-eema Samuels, as well as the children of Busy Bee Crèche were in attendance and it was a fun-filled day for all.”

Abrahams added the day had centred on fun activities for all to enjoy, such as face painting, cupcake decorations as well as games. “We are also celebrating the birthday of a House of Grace resident, affectionately known as ‘Blom’,” she said. “She was found in a storm drain nine years ago, and has called this her home ever since.”
