The night of 05th March 2023 witnessed departure of two of our DNipCare Palliative family members and it is very painful to all of us, the Volunteers, who were visiting those patients. The first was the death of Mr. Mohammed Ali, 47 years old Oral Cancer patient at 8.00 PM in Shanti Avedna and the second was the death of Mrs. Syra Banu, 52 years, another Cancer Patient and resident of Mohan Garden, Uttam Nagar, in the midnight at her residence.
Mohammed Ali came to our family on picking him from the pavements of Batla House Road in Okhla on 9th November 2022 as a destitute patient and ensured the best possible care in Shanti Avedna Sadan, tried all our efforts to trace his family, but unfortunately understood that there was none who can be called his family members or close relatives.
Irony is that, may be due to his previous virtues and good deeds, God has bestowed a very much dignified life and death to him after reaching with us, by way of the care of Shanti Avedna Sadan Doctors, Nurses and the love of DNipCare Volunteers.
Today morning, along with the presence of over 20 DNipCare Volunteers, the entire mourners of yet another deceased person, available at Nizamudheen Graveyard also joined for the last rites of Mohammed Ali making it really a memorable one and in a way turning even the words Destitute, Orphan etc meaningless.
Mrs. Syra Banu, wife of a Rikshaw Puller of Uttam Nagar came into the DNipCare family since 09th March 2013 and we had ensured her care throughout the time. It is also worth noting that our Suresh Sir has made it a point through one or the other volunteers staying nearby her home that the required medicines reached her home every month continuously for the 5 years, post her surgery. She left behind her family consisting of her husband and children. She has been buried in the Graveyard at Hastsal. Let us all pray for both Mohammed Ali and Sayra Banu.
