Darushifa General WAQF
Darushifa is a registered NPO (191/357) whose mission is to care for the elderly with love and dignity so that the final years of their lives are peaceful, happy, and full of good memories.
Darushifa is an Awqaf SA project that started in 2014 and is a community-based organization serving all of humanity through an Islamic ethos.
There was an increasing growth of elderly ladies in the community who were widowed and who are living alone and finding themselves in financial difficulty and not being able to maintain the homes that they were living in on their own.
This project started in Lenasia as there was an increasing need to help the elderly who have become our forgotten generation.
The service started with home-based care, where trained caregivers assisted elderly patients to recuperate from ill health or to cope with daily living needs.
Many times, the family is under strain due to the tough economic climate that we live in and cannot be at home during the day, thus leaving the elderly person alone; or is not trained to assist the elderly family member who is in need of more specialised care.
