Mubarak’s Story

If you met Mubarak you’d never forget him. He was a hardworking man who was dedicated to serving his family and community.

As a grocery store owner in Toronto’s Little India, he was always ready to help everyone — especially those new to Canada. He made sure that struggling families had food on their tables even if they couldn’t pay.

That was the kind of man and father he was.

In February, this year, Mubarak traveled to the United Kingdom for the funeral of his eldest sister. He had little reason to fear for his health—until he came down with a fever and started to feel tired a week after his return. As a precaution, he was tested for COVID-19. A few days later, the swab results came back. Mubarak had the COVID-19 virus and his condition soon began to deteriorate…rapidly.

His daughter and son-in-law were terrified. They’re both doctors on the frontline of the pandemic at Trillium Health Partners, and knew how deadly this virus could be.

With his life in danger, it was important for the entire family that their father receive the best health care possible. For them, there was only one place to go: Trillium Health Partners.

They quickly took Mubarak to the emergency department at Trillium Health Partners. It was a great relief knowing he was in good hands and in a safe environment. Every step of the way, they knew the dedicated and compassionate team at the hospital would be there for him.

“During this time of great emotional strain, we can’t tell you how grateful we were for the extraordinary care he received—care that critical donors like you made possible.”
