- Nsubuga said his new-found faith of Islam gives him a strong personal connection to charity and helping the less privileged in society
Londoner Moosa Nsubuga is giving back to the society as taught to him by his new faith, Islam.
Nsubuga, who is a Muslim convert ,said his faith gives him a strong personal connection to charity and helping the less privileged in society. Thus, he, alongside his mates, started a small project giving away high-quality trainers to at-risk teenagers and the homeless.
Briefly.co.za learnt that in 2017, after the Grenfell fire, Nusubuga and his friends gave out extra donations to people who lost all in the inferno.
His decision to give high-end quality things as donations started when he noticed that the quality of things donated was poor and he felt ashamed to hand them over. He then promised to change the nature of his offerings and thus launched Resole.
With Resole, Nsubuga gives out new trainers to the homeless and disadvantaged youths at risk of gang violence and drug abuse. They hand out designer brands such as Gucci and top quality Adidas and Nike items, among other top brands.
Nsubuga started with his barely-worn quality shoes then asked his friends for theirs too, which they donated. On average, Resole donates between 150 and 200 pairs of quality trainers, amounting to a value of almost R280k, per month from donations.
