MSA Iftaar Outreach

Rondebosch Boys’ High School’s – Muslim Students’ Association (MSA) hosted their first-ever collaborative outreach Iftaar (breaking of the fast) on 17 April 2022, along with the MSA’s of Bishops, Wynberg Boys’ High School, Wynberg Girls’ High School, Herschel and Westerford.  The MSA’s were able to host over 150 underprivileged children from homes in the townships, and orphanages in and around Cape Town. The Iftaar was highly beneficial as it gave the high school learners the chance to give back to the community. Our learners participated in Islamic activities and prayers, enjoyed a meal together, and played football with the children.

The main meal included soup, naan bread, and pizza. The children were treated to cool drinks, various savories, and falooda (a very delicious traditional dessert drink).  Nabeel Royker, RBHS’s Head of MSA, had the following to say: “Seeing the smiles on these kids’ faces was honestly priceless. It brought much joy to all of those involved. What a heart-warming event.”

A big thank you to all those involved in the planning and execution to make the Iftaar a huge success. 💙💛

The evening ended with the serving of dessert and handing out Easter eggs, sweets and party packs.
