Why support Learning Institutions?
Islam is a religion based upon knowledge; for faith in Islam is not blind, rather it is rooted in reasoning and recognizing the Signs of God’s existence.
The text of the Quran is replete with verses inviting man to use his intellect, to ponder, to think and to know; in order to reflect on the meaning of life. Prophetic sayings are also full of references to the importance of knowledge. Sayings such as “Seek knowledge even as far as China” and “Seek knowledge from the cradle to the grave” have echoed throughout the history of Islam and incited Muslims to seek knowledge wherever it might be found.
The possessor of knowledge or wisdom has been given a very precious and powerful gift. The acquisition of knowledge and understanding is something that should be done actively by everyone.

The primary objective was to awaken leadership qualities within the kids, so that they could go back to their respective communities and inspire other youth and together, become role models for all kids..

The Qurbani Project

Buy your sheep now and donate to ICARE FEEDING SCHEMES

On behalf of ICare Children’s Foundation we express our sincerest appreciation for your contribution throughout the year towards our fundraising events. It is through the support of individuals and corporate representatives like you that we are able to continue and strengthen our organisation and develop new innovative projects to help the underprivileged and children with disabilities.
Qurbani is the greatest act of Ibada on the day of Eid-Ul-Adha. We at ICare want to make this act of Ibada affordable and more available to the public. You may purchase a sheep at the price of R1700, 00 or buy your share by donating R500. 00. Meat may be donated to our feeding scheme or for distribution purpose. This will include slaughtering, cleaning, cutting and distribution..

Allah says in the Qur’an: 'It is neither their flesh nor their blood that reaches Allah; it is your piety that reaches him. The scholars have stated that the philosophy behind ‘Udhiya’ is that it is a demonstration of submission to Allah, complete obedience to Allah’s will or command and sacrificing everything for his pleasure. Ibrahim demonstrated this spirit of submission and sacrifice in the best possible manner. When confronted with the challenge of love and allegiance, he chose to submit unconditionally to Allah and suppressed personal desire and love for his family and child. Qurbani calls for the slaughter of one's innate desires by placing the knife of courage and resistance on hatred, jealousy, pride, greed, animosity, love for the world and other such maladies of the heart.

Outreach

ICare has weekly outreach programmes at various institutions such as Red Cross Children’s Hospital, Tygerberg Hospital, Sherwood Park Disabled Care Centre, Safe Homes in Manenberg & Heideveld, Al-Jamia Al-Islamia Al-Alamiyah, Harare Islamic College as well as underprivileged Day Care Centres in the community.
Another part of our outreach programme is our weekly feeding schemes in various underprivileged and informal settlements like The Vlei, Hanover Park, Philippi, Heinz Park, Mitchells Plain, Manenberg, Heideveld, Bonteheuwel, Valhalla Park, Gugulethu, Delft as well as at Safe Homes, Orphanages and schools in and around Western Cape.

There are millions of South Africans that go hungry every single day…iCare doing its level best to make a difference in the Heinz Park community with one of its feeding schemes. 




Too many parents of the little patients at the Red Cross Hospital spend their entire day without any food. Many of them come from rural areas and have to spend long hours sitting and waiting...iCare feeding these parents waiting for assistance at the Red Cross Hospital.

84 year old Asa Moses from Bonteheuwel suffered a stroke two years ago. The effect of this has made it almost impossible for her to walk, let alone stand. Her quality of life deteriorated dramatically. On April 01st 2016, the ICCF, managed to source a wheelchair for Mrs. Moses. We sincerely hope that this small gesture will improve her mobility and her quality of life. 



Mogamad Fa’iz Salie, aged 59, from Rocklands Mitchells Plain received a wheelchair from the Ward Councillor of Rocklands and the Mayor of Cape Town through an application placed via the ICCF to the City of Cape Town. Mr. Salie is a diabetic sufferer and had his lower right leg amputated above the knee which qualified him for this initiative run by the City of Cape Town. The ICCF was happy to assist Mr. Salie with his application and grateful for the contribution made to his independence.

Naseema Jassiem, a 66year old resident of Lentegeur Mitchells Plain has been suffering from arthritis. She couldn’t walk much or stand for long periods. Aunty Naseema used to move around the house and kitchen in a normal chair. Aunty Naseema appealed to us to help her find a wheelchair. We could see the challenges that she was facing and we could see her pain. ICare children’s foundation with the help of Councillor Bent from sub council 23 requested from the mayor’s office help to attain a wheel chair, and through this effort we could bless aunty Naseema with a brand new wheelchair.

FUTURE AIMS & OBJECTIVES
To provide the above services effectively, we intend to do the following:
PHASE 1
Building as a Washing Area/ Wash bay for all no matter what race or religion. We aim to have our own facility where deceased bodies can come directly from home/hospital to be washed and prepared for viewing – practical washing and shrouding. With this in mind there are a number of fundamentals to keep in mind such as health and hygiene. Correct protective clothing to prevent contracting any deceases such as HIV, TB, etc. Even though the person is deceased it is not impossible to contract any decease due to not being protected.
Administration

Stock in reserve for at least 10 x 100 lt pots of food with the allocation of 2x 100 lt pots of food per family per burial
