Claire and Najwa feed and clean their sick, disabled, and elderly neighbours every day. The two women also take care of cooking and cleaning for the grateful helpless.

50-year old Najwa has two children of her own, but she lost her son only two months ago during a shooting in Manenberg, according to a report by IOL News.
