Developing Lives Foundation chairwoman, Khatija Nabi, said that the grand charity golf day challenge, which is to be held at the Windsor Park Golf Course on October 13, is gaining momentum.
The tournament format which is a 4-ball better ball stableford, is open to all golfers who are handicapped, non-handicapped and leisure golfers.
Nabi added that veteran golfer, Mickey Naidoo, and his committed team of experienced golf co-ordinators, Raj Sigamoney and Rogers Marimuthoo, are tirelessly working to make this day a great success for the organisation and those they serve in terms of poverty alleviation.
She said that poverty within the community is escalating at a phenomenal rate and the reality that many people go to bed sometimes without a meal exists.
“Many elderly people living with diapers cannot afford to buy adult diapers. The funds we raise help support people with adult diapers. Our primary drive is to restore the dignity in people’s lives. I know that golfers share the same vision and heart of the Developing Lives Foundation, hence our reason to host the event,” she said.
