As you are aware of the heavy loss inflicted to the lives and property due to the devastating floods encompassing a large area of Pakistan during the last summers and its aftermath. Pakistan Islamic Medical Association(PIMA relief) was amongst the first responders to be joined immediately by other FIMA members and partner organisations. There was an excellent harmony and joint collaborations amongst these medical releif providers. PIMA’s flood relief efforts were strongly substantiated by IMANA, IMAM, MERCY Malaysia, IMANI, MER-C Indonesia, Jordan Medical Society for Islamic studies, Arab Medical Union, IMA Egypt, DWW(Turkey), IMA Sri Lanka and many others.

In response to the ever increasing number of women and children in need of health care sevices, FIMA launched its first “Mobile Mother and Child Clinic” in collaboration with PIMA. DWW(Turkey) IMA Indonesia, Jordan Medical Society for Islamic Studies under the able guidance of Prof Aly Mishal & Muslim Aid (UK). The fleet equipped with most modern gadgetry and medical supplies has been working since Jan 2011 in the worst flood hit areas of South Punjab and is providing medical services to those who can’t afford to move to cities and towns for medical help. Around 100 patients are examined daily and around 4000 lab tests, ultrasound exams and minor OB/GYN and surgical procedures have been  carried out.
