A little goes a long way

Giving back to the community of Wesbank is all she longs to do.

Whether it be by distributing food parcels, warm meals or blankets, Bahia Mohammed makes it her mission to make a difference.

“I started making food for the community 15 years ago when I got married. Back then we handed out food three times a week, but now I’m doing it twice a week. Giving back has always been something I’ve been passionate about because I see daily how people struggle in our area. It’s a very sad reality and I believe if you have the means to make a difference then you should make it your priority,” said Mohammed.

She explained that she makes meals twice a week now as she’s also working full-time.

“The poverty in Wesbank is extremely high. The best feeling is seeing the expression on the children’s faces when they are handed their meals. They look so excited and appreciative.”

Mohammed said when she arrives home from work at around 16:00, her son-in-law helps her prepare a fire to get the pot boiling. She uses three 100 litre pots to prepare soup, akhni, and other dishes.

“I always prepare the food a day before the time because of my working hours. Then on the days that I hand out meals, we start at about 18:00 as soon as I get home from work. I could never do this without my sponsors, which include my employer.”
