The example of those who spend their wealth in the way of Allah is like a seed of grain, which grows seven ears; in each ear is a hundred grains. And Allah multiplies His reward for whom He wills. And Allah is all-Encompassing and all-Knowing. (Quran 2:261)
Colours of Hope usually spends Mandela Day at two venues, one of them being Thuthuzela Aid Community Centre - Orphanage in Alexandra, Johannesburg. Habiba Ahmed Salloo of Colours of Hope coordinates visits to Thuthuzela Centre. Take a couple minutes to read her post below about “Mama Lizzy Monyela”, founder of the Thuthuzela Aid Centre.
Mama Lizzy runs the orphanage, taking care of abandoned children daily. She also runs a day care center as a means of sustaining these children. She is passionate about what she does and explained to us the reason behind her passion.
Apart from losing her only grandson who was aged 13, in a car accident some years ago, Lizzy had also lost her son, Julius, many years ago. Lost, as in, she's not sure whether her son is alive or not after all these years. Julius was born with Downs Syndrome.
One day, he just wandered off and was never seen again. She looked everywhere for him and even reported him missing, but he was never found.
Lizzy’s son was the inspiration behind the establishment of Thuthuzela Aid Centre. “Each day I take care of these abandoned children, I have the hope that just as I am looking after these children, someone, somewhere, is looking after my son”. Since 2005, she has faced many challenges keeping the home operational but she never loses hope and tries to accommodate the children in her care.
Colours of Hope distributed 60 lunchboxes sponsored by Tupperware South Africa, made possible by Rashida Afindy. The lunch boxes were filled with snacks, potato chips, a juice and a small packet of Coco Pops cereal to munch on. Kudos to Mama Lizzy Monyela. Find your passion through your pain.

Alhamdulillah truly inspirational
Thank you and “Jazaakumullaahu khairann” to all who fulfilled their Qurbani 2019 with us. Meat of the udhiyyah animals were distributed to these camps: Damdamia, Jadimora and Balukali.
Kolatoli Orphanage also benefitted from the D
Qurbani distributions. The Rohingya in these camps are fortunate if they eat meat twice a year, so May Almighty Allah reward you for your generosity and sparing a thought for our Rohingya brothers and sisters this Eid-ul Adha 2019. Lonely Orphans keep up the good work. ... See MoreSee Less

Colours of Hope distributed 81 baby hampers at Chris Hani Baragwanath Hospital on Thursday, 27 June 2019. Each hamper contained toiletries, clothing items, and included maternity pads for the mothers. Colours of Hope also handed out clothing packs, each one containing a baby vest and outfit, labeled with the age and gender of the baby, as well as the season.
We were met by the friendly Ms. Khululeko Petunia Sambo, Mr. William Lenyanyabedi (photographer), and Sister Sephodiwe, who accompanied us throughout the wards. They eagerly helped with the distribution and expressed their gratitude that Colours of Hope continues to donate annually to the moms and babies of their hospital.
The Colours of Hope Youth team also eagerly awaited their visit to the innocent and pure little souls that the hospital terms as ”abandoned babies”: babies who are left at the hospital after birth, awaiting adoption. There is an estimated 3 000 babies abandoned in South Africa each year. Colours of Hope continues to donate to as many as we can reach. Please spare an item of clothing for a little one.
We’d like to thank all our donors and volunteers for their valuable donations and efforts. Without you, this would not be possible.

Mini Muslims (Mayfair West), Educator J wanted to imbibe the spirit of empathy in her little ones this Ramadaan.
Her idea was, for the kids to paint a “canvas of love”, and allow parents to purchase their children’s canvases.
She then contributed the funds to Colours of Hope Iftaar 2019.
Teacher J explained,
“Our painting of love and rainbows gave us inspiration to contribute Iftaar to children who haven't eaten in days while we in South Africa indulge in a luxurious Iftaar.
Alhamdulillah, with the help of our parents and educators we managed to fill a belly with food and happiness.
What seemed like mere fun and messy play here at Mini Muslims, was actually a small initiative to help others and to show the world what love truly is.... our desire to make the world a better place!”
The kids were excited to see pictures and videos of recipients receiving their iftaar meals...more importantly, that THEY were able to be part of making a difference in this big world! ... See MoreSee Less

“Smiling in your brother’s face is an act of charity. So is enjoining good and forbidding evil, giving directions to the lost traveller, aiding the blind and removing obstacles from the path.”
