Bringing a smile to the elderly!
On the 18 July 2018, the Jamiatul Ulama South Africa partnered will the ANC Youth League in Randfontein, west of Johannesburg, to bring a smile to the elderly. As part of Mandela Day activities each year, the Jamiatul Ulama South Africa chooses to focus its projects on either the elderly or young children, two most vulnerable and neglected sectors of society.
This year, the Welfare Department of the Jamiatul Ulama South Africa visited the Bekkersdal Old Age Home which is a day centre for the aged. On a daily basis various skills and training programmes are conducted for them. In addition to this, social workers and nurses tend to their medical needs by assisting them in visiting the local clinic to obtain the required treatments and medication. Despite the fact that the facility is run by the state, the elderly visiting this centre are needy and often neglected by the broader society.
During the event on the day, personnel from the Jamiatul Ulama South Africa enlightened the approximately 300 attendees with a brief introduction to Islam and the beauty of good conduct and social etiquette. The Jamiatul Ulama South Africa also provided sandwiches for the elderly in addition to the grocery hampers and blankets which were given to all of them.
