Darul Ihsan Humanitarian Centre - in its ongoing commitment to provide basic health care services to communities living in outlying areas - held another Al Ihsan Clinic Day in Illovo on Sunday, 06 October 2019.
Often senior members of communities in outlying areas find difficulty in accessing or commuting to health care centres.
The Al Ihsan Clinic Day was set-up at the newly renovated Ekuphileni Care Centre which serves as a base for general community services in the area. Further, the Care Centre is also supported by Darul Ihsan Humanitarian Centre.
Almost one hundred senior persons were attended to on the Clinic Day with general check-ups, eye-screening, dental checks, blood pressure tests, etc. Additionally, referrals are made and at least fifteen patients were handed referral letters to state healthcare institutions for further treatment.
The Medical team - headed by Dr Zahid Khan - comprised three general practitioners, three pharmacists, two optometrists, one dentist, one audiologist, 12 nursing volunteers, four community volunteers with staff members from Darul Ihsan Humanitarian Centre.
Light snacks, bottled water and lunch was provided for all patients who attended the Clinic Day.
Many senior patients and the local Induna expressed their gratitude to the medical team for providing the basic healthcare service in their area.
Darul Ihsan Humanitarian thanks the entire medical team and all other volunteers for giving their time and selflessly serving the needs of our community.
The Al Ihsan Clinic Day and other outreaches of Darul Ihsan Humanitarian Centre are made possible through the generous and ongoing support of the Muslim community.
