Many patients that travel to the ARV and HIV Clinic at the R K Khan Hospital in Chatsworth, Durban leave home in the early hours of the cold winter mornings to find a place in the long queues for medical attention.
The Relief Team of Darul Ihsan Humanitarian Centre – through its ‘Feed A Patient’ project has been providing biscuit packs, snacks and bottled water on a weekly basis to patients awaiting medical attention at the clinic and other such healthcare institutes in Durban and surrounding areas.
On Thursday, 4 July 2019 the Centre’s Relief Team visited the Clinic at the RK Khan Hospital to also provide some ‘winter warmth’ in the form of the distribution of blankets to the patients. On arrival at the Clinic the Relief Team was welcomed by the Manager of the ARV Clinic, Sister Barbara Samuel and her team.
The Relief Team of the Centre, through its ‘Sponsor A Blanket 2019’ campaign, distributed blankets to 100 patients at the clinic – many who leave their homes as early as 4 AM to come for treatment at the clinic.
The patients expressed their sincere thanks to all members of the Relief Team for the blankets.
Sister Samuel and Sister Sally Ramnarain also assisted in coordinating the distribution of the blankets to the patients. They personally thanked Abdul Saeed Shaik, Head of Operations and Manager of the Relief Team of Darul Ihsan Humanitarian Centre, for the kind gesture and asked him to convey their deep gratitude to the Centre for the blanket outreach.
“Thank you so much for the beautiful blankets. Our patients were truly blessed today. May the Almighty bless your organisation and your humanitarian work.”
These outreaches are made possible through the generous contributions and ongoing support of the Muslim community.
