Hlengiwe Foundation

Having seen first-hand the incredibly difficult circumstances many parents and children endure in South Africa, Dr Khan felt there must be some way she could help.

“Working with families who have access to quality health care and often come from privileged circumstances, I thought it might be a good idea to collect second hand items and other baby accessories such as formula and nappies from my clients to donate to under-privileged communities,” Dr Khan said.

“I discovered a community clinic in the Valley of 1000 Hills where we now deliver all items kindly donated by my patients and their families.”

The foundation was named after one of Dr Khan’s special patients, “Hlengiwe” and means ‘to care for/ nurse’.

 

“I want very much to care for others and so this project is an extension of what I do in my practice. It’s a privilege to be able to give back to those in need.”

You can help too!

If you have any second hand clothes or baby equipment or any other items you would like to donate such as formula, nappies and other consumables, these items can be dropped off at Dr Khan’s rooms. Once per month the hospital vehicle will deliver all the items to the community clinic in the valley.
