Al-Imdaad Foundation
09 Apr 2020

Al-Imdaad Foundation teams in South Africa have been responding to the COVID-19 pandemic in partnership with Disaster Management authorities to help ‘flatten the curve’ and protect the elderly and vulnerable groups during lockdown.

The Al-Imdaad Foundation has taken a multi-pronged approach to addressing the situation. Firstly, it is distributing sanitisers and hygiene kits to needy communities. Secondly, it is making water storage tanks available to help improve hygiene for communities with limited access to water in the Eastern Cape and KwaZulu-Natal. Food aid is also being made available to ensure vulnerable individuals do not need to leave their homes. Al-Imdaad Foundation coordinator, Mr Abed Karrim explained that the Foundation was focusing on providing static water tanks (Jojo/eco) for rural communities, informal settlements and wherever there was a need to improve hygiene. Thus far, the Foundation has supplied static tanks to the eThekwini Metro, the Uthukela, Ugu and Harry Gwala districts in KwaZulu-Natal, as well as to the Buffalo City Metro in the Eastern Cape. The Foundation has also addressed the impact of the lockdown measures on vulnerable citizens including the elderly, the homeless and informal traders who are unable to work. Al-Imdaad Foundation teams in the Western Cape, Eastern Cape, Northern Cape, KwaZulu-Natal and Gauteng have all been activated. The teams have provided blankets, mattresses and hygiene kits at various sites set up for homeless persons during lockdown. They have also been involved with providing daily feeding at a number of these sites. Hampers have been delivered by provincial teams across the country to the elderly, infirm and other vulnerable groups to help them avoid the risks of leaving their homes. The Foundation is also making short-term welfare vouchers available in certain locations to families badly impacted by the lockdown. These can be redeemed for food and groceries. Al-Imdaad Foundation’s efforts are not limited to South Africa. The foundation will also be delivering hygiene kits and sanitiser, to refugees in Jordan via its country office there. In Kenya, wash stations and sanitisers have been delivered for vulnerable street vendors on the outskirts of Mombasa city. The Foundation’s Indonesia office has also supported government health facilities in West Java with the provision of soaps, sanitisers and other supplies. In the Democratic Republic of Congo, similar distributions are taking place in coordination with relevant health authorities. Al-Imdaad Foundation is committed to continuing the fight against COVID-19 and to support those affected by lockdown measures for as long as necessary.
