On the day of Eid Al-Fitr ILM-SA brings around 200 underprivileged children to Essenwood Park for a party the likes of which they only get to enjoy once a year on this occasion. We provide them with a new set of clothes each in advance to wear on the day, transport, meals, plenty of goodies, and all in all it's a wonderful day.

We cannot stress how they value the clothing we give them. They wear these clothes regularly thereafter, and really appreciate them. There's also a cycle of empowerment in place, as the clothes for the girls are sewn by a widow who relies on this as a source of income. Each set of clothes costs between R200 to R250.

We need to start to get the ball rolling now, as the lady who sews these clothes isn't in the best of health, and she has many sets (100)  to sew.

We would therefore like to ask anyone who would like to sponsor a set or more of clothes to please inform us thereof. This would surely be very rewarding for you, and very helpful for us, and our children, as well as the woman who sews these clothes.

All in all we require 100 sets of clothes. We therefore require R25 000 which we assure you goes to wonderful use in clothing the less privileged.  The rest of the children are boys and their clothes are sourced from a wholesaler. Both Zakaah and Lillah are acceptable for this purpose.

You can sponsor as many sets as possible at R250 per set, in one of the following ways:
1)  Simply drop off cash at our office, middle office (ILM-SA), Parking C, NMJ Islamic Centre open Mondays to Thursdays 9am to 12pm, Fridays 9am to 11am, Saturdays 11am to 1pm. 
2)  Let us know if you want to do an EFT, and if so, whether it's zakaah or lillah, as well as the quantity of sets you'd like to sponsor - we will then send you the relevant details.  You can contact us on or via Whatsapp at 083 271 4500.

In order to gain a sense of what this celebration is about and how much it means to the children, and what a difference the new clothes makes to our children, please visit the following sites:

Hoping to receive a wonderful response from you, ILM-SA
