Ali Banat, very recently discovered that he had cancer and only seven months to live. A successful entrepreneur, Ali had everything he wanted, a fleet of high performance cars including a Ferrari Spider, luxury watches, mansions and just about everything else. Facing his inevitable fate, Ali began disposing of all his assets and made a determination to make a difference in the lives of many who needed a helping hand. For one of his projects, Ali travelled to Togo, Africa, where he felt he could help without too much red tape. He founded the MATW Africa Project which aims to build a village which will be home to over 200 widows, a school, and a residential dorm to house 600 orphans. A mini hospital/medical centre and businesses to support the local community are also going to be established. Ali explains: “After someone tells you, or you find out that you are sick or haven’t got much time in this life, wealth is the last thing you want to chase and this is how we should be living our life every day”. “It all started when I went to the cemetery to attend a funeral and I was thinking to myself after you go, there’s nothing, there’s no one there for you, no mother, no father, no brother, and no sister except for your good deeds. At this point in my life, I have been gifted by Allah with cancer throughout my body and I have changed my whole life to helping people. It is a gift because Allah has given me a chance and some time to change.”
