The feeding scheme has been in operation for almost three years. This is a community initiave that was started by a group of young men that were unemployed. Their intentions were noble and Allah cleared their road, enabeling them to rake up (Amongst them) enough funds to cook their first deg (Feeds appr.100 people) Alhamdulillah, ever since then this group of men did not look back.
Currently and collectively this scheme with it's humble begining now prepares between 10 and 20 degs of food monthly. With this over 2 000 people of all race colour and creed are fed monthly. The scheme depends purely on funds from the public. Islam Alive only became active over the last 14 months and only contributes a fraction of what is needed to keep this noble cause running. Your contributions in this respect will be highly appreciated. Kindly refer to our events calendar to find our respective feeding dates. This is one of the few orginizatons that has no Boss but only Workers.
Only selected quality ingredients go into each pot. Our motto is "if it is not good enough for us then it's not good enough for anyone else.'...
Bhai Gora keeps a watchful eye on costs. (holding the jug) "For us every cent that was donated, was donated with a niyyath and intention, it is up to us to ensure that we fulfil that trust that was placed in us to make sure every donors contribution gets utilized for the purpose it was intended.'
Dedicated members make sure nothing goes wrong
The man behind the spoon is our main and only cook, who stirs away tirelessly every month to ensure that every deg prepared is the way it should be. "For me what I do is purely for the pleasure of Allah (SWT) it is only by His divine guidance that we have taken on such a huge task, each and every one involved in this effort only does it for the pleasure of our Creator. The joy that we all experience in this project cannot be measured to anything in this world."
To be a part of this project has taught us all one thing. 'We all are one, and when we stand together no force in this world will be able to destroy us.' When we see the conditon of the people that we feed we realize how fortunate we are, and how much Allah has blessed us with. We all need to look into ourselves and get rid of our faults, before looking at others and casting them aside.
All our ingredients are washed and trimmed before being prepared. This starts at about 05H00. Each person has a responsibility and each person knows exactly what to do when he arrives. All our members do this on a voluntary basis. No one earns a salary and no one is superior than anyone in this project.
