From Security Guards to Lockdown Knights in Shining Armour
With the lockdown brought on by the COVID19 Pandemic, food security has become a massive issue. We have found South Africa almost become a Mutual Aid country, where many people are giving and lending a helping hand to those in need. Vision Tactical, a private security company partnered with a local NGO, The Muslim Association of South Africa (MASA), to deliver and hand-out essential goods to those in need.
The Muslim Association of South Africa (MASA) is an independent Muslim humanitarian non-profit organisation with its firm focus on religious values, educational elevation, social welfare and a charitable culture. Their purpose is the achievement of large-scale societal change through community alliances. Sharing of resources to create a utilitarian society in which all members of community can benefit. We at Purpose Pioneers applaud this initiative as this is a religious NGO that is not just helping their own but helping those in need regardless of their race or religion.
When everyone is committed to the overall goal, teams move faster, are more innovative and more successful.

Director of Vision Tactical, Yaseen Theba says that it’s positive to see how many NGO’s and volunteers have come forward and rose to the challenge of assisting the needy during a very challenging time.
“The members from the Muslim Association of South Africa found out about the dire need for essential food items required at the Bakazela Settlement, they then immediately purchased the items, and came out to distribute.”
Theba says that every helping hand counts at this point in time.
“During this challenging period, being proactive and positive is the only way to move forward stronger and together.”
