This year Ismaili CIVIC Day was observed on Sunday, September 27, 2020, in Ontario. More than three hundred volunteers gathered to run a collection drive for supplies for local women’s and youth shelters. Over 7,500 items were collected, ranging from toiletries, non-perishable food items, bedding and much more. In a bid to ensure safety given the current global pandemic, volunteers ran a drive-thru drop-off of supplies over two hours across thirteen locations in the region. The items collected were then delivered to local shelters.

Kasangati Orphans Fund Society (KOFS) has said continuing food donations received from the Shai Ismaili Muslim community, who are the followers of His Highness the Aga Khan, has enabled them to feed 800 orphans under their care.

Located in Kawanda, Wakiso District, the orphanage is called Kasangati because it started from there with few children but later relocated to near Kawanda following an increase in the number of orphans sheltering at the orphanage.

The work of volunteers is becoming more important as governments do less and less in society, says one of the leaders of an international development network.

Princess Zahra Aga Khan, 27, is the oldest of three children of the Aga Khan, the wealthy developer and financier who is spiritual leader of the world's 15 million Ismaili Muslims.

Princess Zahra works on social welfare, women's activities and youth programs supported by the Aga Khan Development Network, a 30-year-old group of private, non-denominational international development agencies.
