Financial Assistance For Various Categories Of Recipients

Darul Ihsan Humanitarian Centre, through its Welfare Department, renders financial assistance to over 40 communities in greater Durban. Through a process of due diligence and driven by policy and process, the department seeks to assist as many families as possible. Over the years thousands of needy households have been rendered financial help for groceries, utilities, school fees, uniforms, education, medical assistance, transport, and a host of other basic needs. Despite the crippling lockdowns, catastrophic KZN riots and disastrous floods, the organisation continues in its quest to help the most vulnerable in our community. Every effort is made to help people and fulfil the requests of needy recipients, by adopting a favourable and practical approach to requests.

Notwithstanding the good efforts of the Welfare Department, certain individuals who are able bodied and not eligible to receive assistance due to not meeting the criteria, attempt to get financial assistance despite knowing the rules and policies of the organisation. Such people are advised on empowerment options and the need to seek employment and/or skills to sustain themselves. Notwithstanding Darul Ihsan's stated policy, even such individuals are not turned away totally, but are assisted through a basic food hamper or grocery voucher. Hampers and vouchers are given based on the size of family and case assessment. Different sizes of hampers and value of vouchers are given and issued based on the need. The Welfare department endeavours to help where possible and also guides people towards uplifting themselves and becoming self-sufficient. 

The recent KZN riots in 2021 and KZN floods in 2022 and sharp rise in basic cost of living has had a devastating impact on the lives of many people and many more people are reaching out for assistance. Many people are unemployed and destitute. Darul Ihsan, within its limited resources and budgetary constraints, aspires to help as many families as possible, despite its own offices suffering huge damages during the flood amounting to hundreds of thousands of rands.
