The Mustadafin Foundation, an NGO actively working with under-resourced communities in the Western, Eastern Cape as well as Eden Karoo district, is hosting a fundraising initiative, ‘Fish with us for a purpose, to feed a mind and feed a belly’. This event is a fun open fishing competition fundraiser suitable for the whole family. 

‘Fish with us, to feed a mind and feed a belly’ will take place on Saturday, 05 February starting at 12:00 with weigh-in and a prize giving ceremony taking place from 16:00

“To realise the full potential of this fundraising event, we are calling on individuals and businesses to consider becoming a sponsor for the event,” says Ghairunisa Johnstone-Cassiem, director at Mustadafin Foundation.

Events like ‘Fish with us’, provides Mustadafin with a source of important funding to allow them to continue vital work within the communities that they serve. Prior to COVID-19, Mustadafin fed 15 000 registered beneficiaries daily, it has now increased to 27910 beneficiaries daily. Poverty, hunger and a lack-of access to basic resources has increased during the pandemic, and we are forging on to deal with these social disparities. 

“Considering what we still require for this event to take place, we have compiled a wish list of items,” says Johnstone-Cassiem. Mustadafin’s wish list for their ‘Fish with us’ event includes:
