In February this year, we were one of the major sponsors for the Jive 10km Big Walk. This annual community walk held in Cape Town attracts 20,000-strong crowd. Proceeds of the walk go towards the Red Cross Children's Hospital and the Islamic Library.

Said Dr Imtiaz Sooliman: “It was a pleasure for us to be included in this symbolic 10th anniversary walk. We decided to get involved because it was a fantastic opportunity to give back to the people of Cape Town who have so generously supported our relief efforts in Gaza and over the past 16 years. The walk itself was a pleasant experience and had fantastic spirit. We hope that it gets bigger and bigger each year and hope that more people of other faiths will join the walk to show a united Cape Town and a united South Africa. The event is also great for building family spirit which is the cornerstone of building strong societies.”
