Patient Support Group (If applicable)
If you or someone in your family got diagnosed with cancer or a major illness, we are here to provide spiritual support for you. The Tawasaw Patient Support team understands the heavy emotional toll that major illness can have on a family and we approach the subject with respectful sensitivity and heartfelt compassion.
Whenever we have the opportunity to visit the patient in person, we recite authentic dua from the Quran and hadith. We also perform ruqya by their side.

Children with Cancer or major diseases
Elderly with Cancer or major diseases
