Welfare Department of Darul Ihsan strives to serve those in need

Poverty, harsh economic conditions and a high rate of unemployment is making extremely difficult for households to survive. Families are finding extreme difficulty to meet their daily needs of food, rental, utilities, medical expenses, transport, school fees, frail care, clothing, stationery, etc. The list goes on.

The Welfare Department of Darul Ihsan, through its various upliftment projects and services strives to address the immediate needs of families encountering difficulties. The Welfare Department also assists in empowering individuals who are enterprising but do not have the means to start off their work.

Recently a self-employed person who was in a dilemma was assisted to regain ability to earn. His story is one of courage and inspiration.

Abdullah (name changed), a respected indigenous Muslim (30), married with two children (5 & 8 years old), lost his only means of income to support his family. Abdullah, who has a Professional Driving Permit (PDP), is registered to a location-based app that allows him to be a hire on-demand private driver.

After a struggle he managed to raise the required deposit to hire a vehicle from a company and was able to support his family through this income. Regrettably, after being involved in a motor vehicle collision he was blocked by the company to hire another vehicle resulting in him being unemployed.

He then approached the Darul Ihsan Welfare Department for assistance to travel to Pretoria and approach the head office of the vehicle hire company to appeal his case to be re-registered and be able to hire a vehicle once again.

Alhamdulillah, Abdullah’s appeal was successful, but he was unable to raise the deposit to hire another vehicle. The Welfare Department assisted him with the deposit required for another vehicle and Abdullah is once again able to earn a living and support his family.

During his rounds in the Sea Cow Lake area Abdullah is often met by the Welfare Department staff for Salah at Masjid Taqwa.

He expresses his gratitude to the organisation and its well wishers :

“Alhamdulillah, the Welfare Department has made it possible for me to be able to earn an honest living and support my family with dignity.”
