IMASA Tshwane Branch joins the Annual Fun Walk [Esquire Technologies]
In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful
Assalaamu Alaikum Waragmatullaahie Wabarakaatuh
Alhumdulillah, on Sunday the 29th May 2016, the Islamic Medical Association of South Africa (IMASA) – Tshwane Branch joined the Laudium community at the 7km Annual Fun Walk hosted by Esquire Technologies for a “Blanket & Eliminate Hunger Campaign”. This event took place at the Rosina Sedibane Grounds.
The IMASA’s aim at this event was to provide basic screening of Blood Pressure testing, Glucose testing, BMI calculations and to be on standby for any medical emergencies.
The organizers of the IMASA pop up tent was Feroza Kalla from the Women’s Caring Forum and a few very dedicated medical volunteers. We would like to thank Zeenat Hassim, Tayyibah Dhorat, Yaseera Jagot, Juweirya Bala, Safeera Ballim, Tasmia Gani and Rimaan Ahmed. The doctors that who assisted were Dr Shabbir Tar and Dr Reezwana Cassim. The dentist from Smile Labs, Dr Nadeem Osman was present to bring dental care awareness to the crowd and distributed samples of the new Colgate 12 Pro-Gum Health Mini Toothpastes.
The screening and advice offered was well received by the participants of the walk and very beneficial to those who had general medical questions to pose to the health professionals.
As one of the volunteers I would like to take this opportunity to thank IMASA on behalf of all those who volunteered and assisted in making the screening day a successful event and for allowing us as students to be a part of this magnificent and memorable charity event. Alhumdullilah, it was a very good learning experience and opportunity to interact with the community and to also bring awareness to the services IMASA has to offer whereby affording us the opportunity to make a small difference in their lives Inshaa Allah Ameen.

Alhamdulillah the Iftaar programme went off very well. It took place at Maboloko, a poor Muslim community in Brits. Dr Adil Gutta (from the Department of Nuclear Medicine at MEDUNSA), is on the board of this masjid in Maboloko. A total of 200 hampers (which was packed in buckets so they could be also used for carrying water, etc.) containing basic necessities (5 kg Maize meal, 2kg rice, 2 cans of baked beans, 1 kg sugar, 1 pack of 100 tea bags, 750ml oil & a pack of biscuits) were distributed to members of the community. Each hamper was allocated to a family.
A meal was also provided at fast break. A scrumptious chicken akhni was prepared and we joined in with the members of the community. A total of 100 people were present for the iftaar (approximately 75 people from the community were able to make it).
The response from the students was phenomenal as well as their participation in this project. A total of 25 people (students, their family members, IMASA Tshwane Branch guests & our lecturer Dr Michelle Roe) accompanied us for this project. We were fortunate to have Dr Shenaaz Mahomed & her family to join us again. Dr Michelle Roe from MEDUNSA, a lecturer from the Practice of Medicine department joined us as well.
