Since the start of the current global lockdown from the Coronavirus pandemic, WASD has been continuously engaged in organising various awareness events such as seminars, roundtable debates, interviews, etc live on Facebook page using live streaming applications.

Health and Well-Being

At the start of the pandemic and lockdown, many people in the community were very fearful about what to do and how they can protect themselves at home! Despite being asthmatic and diabetic myself, I have been determined to be available on the phone almost 24 hours a day to help others in the community. Furthermore, being from a Sudanese background, our community lost many Sudanese doctors and paramedical team members and therefore I have tried my best to help the community to cope with their loses as well as those who were admitted to hospitals for Covid-19. I have provided support and help to many families in the community many of them did not have local support in their local areas. This included huge efforts communicating with my colleagues and friends in the NHs and Medical Schools learning from them how to help many of the people in the community who felt very anxious and unsupported.

Spiritual Healing

The day of Jomaa it is given this name because Muslims gather in it at Zohar time to preform Salat al-Jomaa. Jomaa is the day Allah (SW) created Adam (AS), then entered into Janah and removed from it on Jomaa as well. It is also going to be the day of resurrection. The Khutbah plays a great role in the spiritual life of the Muslim, therefore we decided to deliver the Khutbah every Friday because of the Coronavirus lockdown. This is primarily to continue the spiritual development of Muslims while they are unable to attend the prayer in the Mosque. This will continue until the lockdown is totally lifted and we hope that you can share the link with others.
