NCP leader Supriya Sule inaugurates vaccination centre at Mohammedi Masjid in Mumbai | Mumbai News – Times of India

MUMBAI: NCP leader and MP Supriya Sule inaugurated a free Covid-19 vaccination center at Dawoodi Bohra community-run Mohammedi Masjid complex at Mohammed Ali Road on Monday.
It has been up by Anjumanane Shiate Ali, the organization that manages Bohra community affairs in Mumbai under the umbrella of the community’s global philanthropic initiative Project Rise.
It will cater to people 45 and above by online appointment. ” Despite Mohammed Ali Road being a busy and thickly populated area, the locality had managed to control the spread of Covid-19,” commended Sule.
Appreciating the efforts of the Dawoodi Bohras, she said: “The Dawoodi Bohra community is helping members of other communities too in these terrible times. The role of Saifee Hospital to treat patients as the city fights the pandemic is commendable.” Shiv Sena MP Arvind Sawant and Mumbai Congress President Bhai Jagtap were among others who attended the inaugural function.
Fakhruddin Palanpurwala, in charge of the centre, said: “We are grateful to the BMC and local authorities in setting this centre up. The entire Masjid Complex is divided into different zones to ensure proper social distancing and efficient flow of visitors during the vaccination process.”
The centre can accommodate over 300 people at a time and the vaccination is completely free. The Bohra community has launched a global #RiseToVaccinate campaign to sensitise and encourage people to come forward and get vaccinated. “Our Dawoodi Bohra volunteers in Mumbai and other parts of the world continue to support and expand the government’s vaccination efforts while also answer queries of the locals related to their health and vaccine hesitancy,” said Ammar Tyeb Khan, a member of Bohra’s global Project Rise initiative.
Recently, the Dawoodi Bohra community in Mumbai set up a COVID-19 War Room to assist patients and their families with oxygen cylinders, oximeters and hospital beds along with consultation from a panel of multi-speciality doctors on a real-time basis.
