- Shanaaz Allie feeds hungry neighbors' children out of her own pocket
- She runs a small business and started a foundation to help her community using her own money
- Inspired by her hard work, a friend of hers called on her community to help ease the pressure on her
A small business owner from Sea Point goes above and beyond to help her community. Shanaaz Allie runs a campaign called Mosadie Gives Back to feed hungry children in Mitchell's Plain once a month.
Allie uses over N200k of her own money to help those who need it and spends her day off from work cooking 400 meals for neighborhood kids. She has been doing this for over a year because it’s heartbreaking to see the number of children in her community who need food.
A friend and supporter of Allie, Kim Prissman, proudly said: “She cooks the most delicious biryani which I tasted last week when I went to help with the cooking.”

Allie comes from a disadvantaged background and understands the difficulties of making ends meet. Overcoming many challenges, Allie has become a successful businesswoman and is determined to give back.
Prioritizing her work feeding children, Allie uses public transport and works long hours. “She wants to feed even more children, even if it means going without the little luxuries that would make her life easier,” says Prissman.
To help ease the pressure on her friend, Prissman as called on the public to help raise money and food to support Mosadie. “Everybody who drops off food will receive her secret recipe,” she says, providing incentive for people to drop off parcels at Allie’s salon in Sea Point.
