This year Muslim Hands took Project Ubushushu to the streets of South Africa. On 11th June 2012 The Hoot2Warm drive commenced. It is an initiative that aims to help many South Africans keep warm this winter. Volunteers were recruited and placed at different intersections where they would hand out pamplets, collect clothes, spare blankets and Non-perishable foods from donors. The Hoot2Warm drive takes place every Monday and Wedsneday mornings from 7am till 9am.
Alhumdulilah we are in our second week of the volunteer program and i can say that it has been a great experience and each and every volunteer holds a value of their own. Their efforts and their energy is what drives this event in becoming truly successful. Every morning when we are out on the streets Allah’s protection and his blessings are with us every step of the way Alhumdulilah.
The intersections that we covered are. Corner of Klipfontein and Jan Smuts, Corner of Jan Smuts and Kromboom and Redross/Milner Road.
