The Central Gauteng Lions (CGL) is proud to partner with the NPO, the Muslim Association of South Africa (MASA). The partnership will strive to assist in providing some relief and assistance to those communities affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. This will be in the form of food parcels as well as clothing donations to those less fortunate.
“We are planning to pack over 1000 food parcels in the coming weeks and continue the relationship post lockdown. The parcels will then be transported to various clubs and schools who will assist with the distribution to various families,” says Head of Communication for Central Gauteng Lions and Imperial Lions: Wanele Mngomezulu.
CGL CEO Jono Leaf-Wright explains that the relief will also be extended to the CGL Hubs, Regional Performance Centre and other areas throughout the year. “This gesture will hopefully provide some reprieve to those experiencing great difficulties during such challenging times. With play suspended, we can’t win on the field, but partnering with MASA and participating in a drive such as this, allows all of us to win off it. Let us stand united together and continue to help one another wherever and however we can.”
“Everyone in society has a role to play, regardless of how small one may think it is. Each contribution and small action has a ripple effect that inspires more action.” Says Communications Manager for the Muslim Association of South Africa: Mohamed Ameen Dabhelia.
MASA Chairman Yaseen Theba has welcomed the partnership with the Central Gauteng Lions: “Help is provided based on need with the goal of saving human lives, soothing human suffering, and maintaining human dignity. Together with the CGL we will be assisting thousands of people in need, as South Africans we have always found strength in our darkest hour, this time is no different.”
