Muslim Hands, an international aid relief organisation, donated 380 branded curtains and 15 new wheelchairs to Victoria Hospital this month as one of its many year-end projects.The hospital has cared for patients since 1889. Over the years it has treated typhoid and bubonic plague, soldiers from the Boer War and World War II. The hospital also provides many destitute families and needy individuals with much needed medical treatment.This state-owned hospital relies on aid organisations to assist them as the government does not fully fund them.Muslim Hands hopes that the donation of curtains will provide patients, especially women, with privacy when getting dressed. It also ensures that each patient gets the opportunity to be examined in private.Muslim Hands’ fundraising manager Imraan Roomaney said it gave the organisation a great sense of satisfaction to know that it had a part in assisting patients to have a smooth recovery at the hospital.“We hope that this donation of curtains will ensure that patients have less disturbance when resting and undergoing recovery from surgery. “The provision of new wheelchairs will also ensure that porters are able to transport patients between wards with ease,” Roomaney said.
