Working in the rural sector is where Abdul Ghameed found his passion for community work as he played a role in various outreach programs.
He ventured into an outpatient setting for two years, upskilling in various sport and orthopaedic injuries. Abdul Ghameed developed a keen interest in working with the layman athlete (weekend warrior), patient education and empowerment, injury prevention and management.

He treated athletes at various WPA running and athletic events in Cape Town, including sporting events such as The Bayhill Premier Cup, Tony Stoops Rugby Festival and the Junior Interprovincial Touch Rugby Tournament.
