Act of goodwill disrupted

Amman Moriama, Welkom Muslim Jamad:

The Muslim Jamad on a weekly basis provides food and refreshments to some 100 people who are attending the local clinics.

We go to the Bongani Hospital, the Thabong Clinic and the Welkom Clinic.

We have been providing this service, without incident, for about four years now.

Last week (29 January) for the first time however, we encountered a problem.

A senior worker at the Welkom Clinic stopped us, and said that we may no longer provide this service there.

Her reason was that the food we give the patients causes them to litter.

Her reasoning was also that the patients must eat outside.

This would mean relin­quishing their place in the queue.

Some of these patients wait a whole day in the queue to see a nursing sister.

They do not have access to food. By leaving the queue they forfeit their place.

It is very upsetting that an act of goodwill is met with such adversity.

  • Vista’s attempts to obtain a comment from the Welkom Clinic and the Department of Health were fruitless.
