Veerisha Singh is indeed a woman of worth.
Veerisha Singh, a Phoenix-born philanthropist and director of a medical service and supply company will be bestowed upon with the 2019 Influential Woman of the Year award, at Sibiya in June.
Singh, who has always been compassionate and concerned about those around her, pursued a career in nursing, where she would be able to take care and positively contribute to society.
The qualified nurse not only serves her community in the doctor’s room but out on the streets as well.
“I do my part in removing abandoned children off the streets and placing them in recovery homes. I have also gone as far as founding and running my own funded feeding scheme where I feed the poor and afflicted on the street,” she said.
She wears a number of hats and is also studying towards a Ph.D. in Nursing in an effort to further alleviate poverty and minister in her community.
The mother of three is the owner of JMD Medical Services and Supplies Company, where she mentors those, who are undergoing breast cancer treatment.
“I mentor women from the time of diagnosis to final healing and continuous support,” Singh said.
With many other duties upon her shoulders, Singh oversees that breast treatment and reconstruction runs smoothly in her breast care clinic.
Even with all she does for others, Singh was not spared from life’s turbulence. “It was in 2016 where I had several operations in the space of two years. I walked the toughest of battles, I had some of my organs removed. It was during that same year that I chose those closest to my heart,” Singh said.
