Outreach to the Mhlombe community in Port Shepstone

In Darul Ihsan Centre’s ongoing 2017 winter campaign the ‘Relief Team’ of the Centre coordinated with Port Shepstone municipality officials and community members in an outreach to members of the Mhlombe rural community.


By midday on Saturday 05 August 2017 the Relief Team met with Port Shepstone community members Brothers Ebrahim Patel, Uzair Patel, Imraan Hansbhai, Yacoob Parak and Yunoos Moolla at the Merlewood Primary School hall.

They were joined by Councillor Ronnie Nair - the Deputy Mayor of the Ray Nkonyeni Municipality - Mr Bonga Nzimande - a Community Policing Forum (CPF) member - and Thessa Nqayi - the branch secretary of Ward 17 Port Shepstone.

Over 400 members of the Mhlombe community were present at the Merlewood Hall – many of them elderly females and males.

Brother Imraan Hansbhai introduced the Darul Ihsan Centre Relief Team, all officials and Port Shepstone co-ordinating members to all present.

The Deputy Mayor expressed his appreciation to members of the Port Shepstone community and Darul Ihsan Relief Team for travelling from Durban for the outreach to the Mhlombe community.

Councillor Nair acknowledged Darul Ihsan Centre for its sterling humanitarian work amongst needy and disadvantaged communities and highlighted the need for communities in Port Shepstone to work closely to enhance the lives of the underprivileged.

Brother Abdul Saeed Shaik, Head of Relief at Darul Ihsan Centre, gave an overview of Darul Ihsan Centre’s activities and thanked all the guests for their kind words and acknowledgement of the Centre’s work.

Brother Shaik pointed out that all outreaches of the Centre are due to the generous contributions of its donors, sponsors and supporters and its many volunteer helpers.

The outreach programme began with a distribution of 405 blankets to members of the Mhlombe community followed by the distribution of 425 hot, packed meals and soft drinks.

A small team of volunteer sisters from Durban - on behalf of Darul Ihsan Centre - facilitated the distribution of the meals.

Many recipients expressed their heartfelt appreciation at the outreach.

The outreach to the Mhlombe community saw a very congenial and proactive coordination between members of the Port Shepstone community and the Relief Team of Darul Ihsan Centre.

Darul Ihsan Centre received the following comments from the Port Shepstone coordinating team:

“Well done to your wonderful and efficient team. We were amazed regarding your professionalism and service delivery. May Allah grant you success and may you grow from strength to strength.” - Imraan Hansbhai.

“Mashallah, May Allah Ta’ala reward the Ulama at Darul Ihsan and the Relief Team and others that supported this project. May Allah Ta’ala grant us all Ikhlaas (sincerity) in all good that we do, Insha Allah” - Mohammad.

“I really enjoyed being part of the Darul Ihsan Project at Mhlombe, it was a pleasure working side by side with two of the most humble and sweetest Muslimahs I’ve encountered thus far. They are an invaluable asset to your organization. Allah reward you and your team with much success, happiness, good health and peace for all your efforts and sacrifices.” - Sister Amarah.

Darul Ihsan Centre thanks all who contribute and assist through their volunteer effort and duas for the success of our relief outreaches to deserving communities.
