    The Darul Islam Zakah Fund relief team returned to Cape Town on Thursday morning from drought-stricken Somalia, relating their shock at the realisation of the effects of civil war in thhe country and the suffering which the Somali people have to endure. According to Sheikh Irfaan Abrahams, head of the mission to Somalia and imam at Darul Islam masjid in Surrey Estate, volunteers were shaken by the recurrence of violence in the region.

    The alim said they worked with NGO's who have already been established in the area. "We met up with Islamic Relief before we left South Africa and we then met with their counterparts in a camp in Somalia as well. We also worked with two local NGO's namely, Asanaa-bil-Khayriya and Al-Kaafi and assisted them in their camps as well."

    Hot debate over Somali aid

    Published by Voice of the Cape on Tuesday, 18 October 2011
    An outspoken VOC caller set a debate alight on Breakfast Beat on Tuesday morning when she harshly criticised a group of Capetonians that left for Somalia to deliver funds raised for the famine stricken Horn of Africa. A smilar debate erupted after the Africa 1 Aid project taking aid to Gaza was launched earlier in the year.

    This time the talking point came after VOC News reported that the humanitarian delegation, led by Sheik Irfaan Abrahams from Darul Islam Masjid in Surrey Estate left for the impoverished country on Monday night. The delegation, consisting of 11 delegates collected close to R1 million, to purchase aid in that country.
