Kaashifa Ismail co-founder and chair of Colours of Hope liased with the South African National Muslim Womens Forum (SANMWF) as did several women forums in South Africa to present the National Cake Sale for Syria. Colours of Hope was joined by H4U support Group, Robertsham and Maids of Deen from Mayfair on 28 January 2017 where treats and bakes were sold to the public. The event made 3rd Avenue in Mayfair buzz that Saturday for a worthy cause, most of all, it created awareness to the plight of the Syrian refugees. Colours of Hope’s newly launched Syria Medi Campaign (launched 20 December 2016) was to benefit from this cake sale, with half of Colours of Hope’s proceeds going to Gift of the Givers and half to the Yusuf Abramjee led OperationSA #SAveSyria. Ismail added 1,500 ZAR zakaah cash contribution to the 22,375.00 ZAR to Fadia Jacobs of Gift of the Givers to make it 23,875.00 ZAR. The remaining half of the funds raised from the cake sale (22,375.00 ZAR) was deposited into the SANMWF bank account for OperationSA #SAveSyria. The SANMWF then deposited a total amount of all the collective cake sales for Syria.
