“In a country well governed, poverty is something to be ashamed of. In a country badly governed, wealth is something to be ashamed of.” -Confucius quotes (China’s most famous teacher, philosopher, and political theorist, 551-479 BC)
Al Fidaa Foundation interacts daily with students who are too hungry to focus on lessons, hears the plight of mothers who are sole breadwinners having no food to feed siblings, poverty experienced by the elderly robbed of their grants by cruel relatives-hunger on a daily basis experienced by a the hundreds.
The Eastern Cape province has always been in the abyss of poverty and unemployment. From Graaff-Reinet to Umtata, PE to Bisho, hundreds of families experience daily hardships. With little support against the avalanche of poverty the plight of this orphaned province has reached miserable levels. Al Fidaa Foundation has initiated over thirty feeding schemes in Port Elizabeth, East London to provide instant relief for many who are not capable to improving their lot. This quick fix solution for hunger is a must, compassion demands our assistance to sustain a hungry person whilst so many live lives of luxury. Your donations will provide a simple wholesome meal to an innocent child, a patient at a clinic seeking medical attention or a student with the nutrition to absorb the lesson for the day.
