With a VERY MINIMAL fee of R10, each patient was fortunate to receive a variety of medical services such as having his/her weight, height & BMI calculated, blood pressure, glucose & cholesterol tested. In addition to this they had a choice of visiting the University of Johannesburg Podiatry team, Optometrists, Occupational Therapists, Physiotherapists and Dentists.

Our sister organization [Muslim Aids Programme – MAP] conducted HIV testing and counselling and Moulaana Moeneeb Martin [BLS Instructor] offered CPR Demos throughout the event.

17 patients visited the SANBS stand and donated blood whilst, Dr Tasneem Mahomedy  [Endocrinologist] & Dr Abdul Hamid Ismail [Sports Physician] had intermittent talks bringing awareness to the public regards; Diabetes, how to eat healthy and the importance of exercising.

Close to 200 patients were screened from 08h30 till 12h30 and the community were appreciative of the services offered.

We would like to thank the coordinating team who ensured that everything ran smoothly and who assisted with making the event a success.  

We make dua that our efforts are accepted for the pleasure of Allah AAMEEN
