Ramadan 2019 sees the fourth-year collaboration of the Makro, Muslims Hands and the Voice of the Cape Radio (VOC) joined forces for community upliftment. The Feed the Hungry Fitrah campaign is a collaboration that gives Makro a chance to say thank you to all their loyal customers and to give back to the supporting community. Makro has once again selected Muslim Hands as the trusted partner united for this humanitarian cause, and Voice of the Cape Radio (VOC) as the preferred media partner to further highlight the campaign.
The launch of the Feed the Hungry Fitrah Campaign will be held at Makro Ottery Store, Cnr Ottery and Old Strandfontein Road on Thursday 2nd May between 2-4pm. VOC will be live at Makro Ottery between 2pm to 4pm, with a 2 hour live broadcast interviewing representatives from Makro, Muslim Hands, and other role-players around their involvement in this initiative.
The Feed the Hungry Fitrah campaign enables Makro customers to be directly involved in this wonderful community charity initiative.
Ways to get involved in Feed the Hungry Fitrah campaign:
- Buy non-perishable items in store and drop in the collection box.
