Darul Ihsan Phoenix office provides meals to many seeking jobs

Households in the Durban suburb of Phoenix and surrounding areas are affected by many social conditions which impact negatively on their lives. One among the many challenges experienced is massive unemployment which has resulted is not only poverty but a desperate need for even a single meal for the day.

At certain areas of Phoenix like the Sunford, people arrive early in the morning and wait along the streets for potential employers who might offer some casual work - even if it is just for a few hours or a day.

Getting up early in the morning and arriving on foot is not only an ordeal for them but to wait for the remote possibility of work for just a day - especially on an empty stomach - is overwhelming.

To help the situation, Darul Ihsan Humanitarian Centre’s Phoenix office has been providing packed meals for up to 50 recipients a day - standing along streets seeking jobs - seven days a week.

A grateful recipient expressed his appreciation to the Centre :

“Often we wait to find some sort of employment on the streets without much hope. Thanks to Darul Ihsan, at least we know that we will not be hungry for the day.”

We hope to continue this much appreciated and increase it where possible.These outreaches are made possible through the generous contributions and ongoing support of the Muslim community.
