The Khidmatun Naas Foundation, in conjunction with the Lenz Boys, is hosting a feeding and fun day for the disadvantaged kids on the 15th of July, 2023. The event will take place on Plot 51, Kliprivier Road, Johannesburg.
The foundation began on a WhatsApp group in 2019/2020, initially known as Nirvana Boys from Nirvana High School.
The group has since grown, frequently assisting the community. Suliman Patel and Muhammed Ameen Wadi highlighted the purpose of the foundation’s exercise, projects and finances.
“The morning begins by the team waking up fellow Muslims for Fajr Salaah. Followed by a weekly bread run and a monthly feeding scheme,” says Patel.
The Khidmatun Naas Foundation assists with Fitrah during Ramadhan and does once a monthly orphanage project and some ADHOC duties.
According to Patel, some projects the Khidmatun Naas Foundation completed include five water wells in Malawi, a borehole project in South Africa and a Masjid Musalla in Finetwon.
“What we do is an investment policy for the Akhira. While we know it’s difficult for a person to put up water well alone, contributing together we sell shares for the Akhira,” said Patel.
The Khidmatun Naas Foundation has previously teamed up with The Fountain of Inspiration to do some walkers and wheelchairs and did around one thousand sleeping bags in Turkey.
Meanwhile, the 15th of July programme will entail a mass feeding partnering with Sheikh Tariq, who started an orphanage on the Kliprivier plot.
“We have an entire day planned on feeding, entertaining and spending time with the children. Around 300 to 500 children are expectations be at the event,” adds Wadi.
