“If you want to go quickly, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.” – African Proverb.
Nominated by her mother Rehana Ishmael, Shaz Gofoor used to have a small beauty therapy place but her daughter was born with a medical condition, and she has since had to give up work to take care of her.
This hasn’t prevented Shaz from being very active in her community, she is always helping other people personally but can only do so much alone.
Shaz has two wonderful projects on the go at the moment, the first of which is currently doing a grocery drive for a lady who recently had to undergo a double mastectomy. She was the breadwinner of her family, taking care of her sons’ kids as well. Her son is ill and unfortunately, has no steady income.
She is now without work and Shaz is assisting them until their grants and disability grants are issued.
The second initiative on Shaz’s books is a Women’s Day lunch for the ladies at the old aged home in her area. Having secured a sponsored venue, Shaz and her mom Rehana, will be doing all the cooking and preparation for this function for approximately 30 ladies on the 13th of August.
Hot Cares would like to donate R 5 000 towards Shaz and her initiatives.For her to buy the food, cold drinks, tea and cake or dessert and some decorations for the tables. This as well as supporting the family in need with groceries until grants payout.
