The Imaamat Council of Northern Suburbs (ICONS) treated more than 500 senior citizens at their second annual luncheon event on Sunday.
The event that took place at Belhar Sports Centre in Belhar, aimed to honour elderly men and woman from across Cape Town, with a special focus of uplifting and instilling a love for parents.
The lavish event was made possible by ICONS in partnership with the South African National Zakah Fund (SANZAF), donors and local masjied committees.
ICONS consist of approximately 31 diligent mosque clerics in the Western Cape and work in conjunction with the Muslim Judicial Council (MJC), meeting once a month on a regular basis to discuss national and international issues at hand.
As part of the Imaamat 2019 year planner and in the in light of the various challenges the elderly are faced with daily, their condition is of great concern to the organisation, ICONS explained.
