With the month of Ramadan setting into winter, VOC hopes to warm up the hearts of the impoverished through the annual Ahlan Wa Sahlan project. Now in its 20th year, the AWS outreach has been a key project of the station’s social responsibility programme and a firm favourite amongst staff and the various structures.
The programme aims, in accordance with our Islamic values, to promote social justice and community bonds, through the glorious recitation of the holy Quran. Every Sunday during this holy month, the VOC will be hosted by a local masjid and will see the completion of a Khatam and thikr.
The programme will conclude with a mass iftar, followed by the distribution of food.
Individuals of all faiths are invited to join in on the project and show their support and solidarity with all those struggling and suffering throughout the world.
The VOC urges its listeners and readers to contribute to this project by signing up a group/groups who will recite a Khatam.

VOC is supported by various other organisations including Gift of the Givers in this project. In order to provide the community with clothing and non-perishable food items, we urge the community to support by dropping off all donations at VOC studios at 2 Queenspark Ave in Salt River.
