At Madressa Noor for the Blind, our students need to
be at their physical and mental best in order to stay alert, be
able to concentrate and feel active and healthy: all important
to effective learning. For these reasons, we offer our students
a wholesome, balanced menu that is varied and enjoyable as well
On a monthly basis, our generous donors and friends send groceries,
vegetables, meat, spices etc to the Madrassa. All goods are accounted
for by our boarding manager Ml Irshaad, and are divided into daily
portions as required and thereafter prepared by our resident cook,
Dawood Bhai. Meals are served in our dining area by assistants
Ebrahim, Mohamed and Sheikh Hussein.
During the month of Ramadaan students are treated to special meals
and treats for Sehri and Iftaar that are sent by our big-hearted
mothers and their families in Pietermaritzburg.
Sometimes, our students prepare their own traditional meals and
confectionery in the kitchen with the assistance of fellow students
and our cooks. Khalid Bhai of Guyana who is blind, and who previously
worked in a bakery, makes mouth-watering doughnuts .
May Allah reward all our sponsors, friends and their families.
Oh Allah feed those that give us food and drink, and make us Muslims.
