IMA North America Relief in Pakistan

Assalamualaikum,

 

By the Grace of Allah the first IMANA Team returned home safe and sound on August 22nd after spending a week in the Charsadda and Nowshera districts. Prior to their departure IMANA Relief was already making a difference. During the first two weeks of the disaster, the organization provided medical aid for approximately 4,800 individuals, purified water to 35,000,  assisted in food distribution for 55,000 and cleared 20 miles of buried roadways and streets so that villages can become accessible. IMANA is indebted to Al-Khidmat Foundation for helping us carry out these efforts.

 

The six physician volunteers arrived on August 13th and the very next day were in Charsadda seeing patients. Alhamdulillah a total of six mobile medical camps were established resulting in care being provided to 1,794 patients. In the evenings the doctors themselves distributed food to a total of 800 individuals. These efforts were only possible by the collaborative efforts made between IMANA, Shine-CDRS, Pakistan Kidney Institute and Pakistan’s Islamic Medical Association. To our partners we are grateful and may Allah bless them immensely.

 

The crisis is epic in proportions and IMANA Relief is truly committed to their motto of making a difference. IMANA has taken the necessary steps to be an example for all in providing for these less fortunate brothers and sisters. Model camps are going to be adopted in each of the affected provinces, one camp per province. In the Khyber Pakthunwa IMANA Relief and its’ partner organizations have already adopted an entire IDP camp (internal displaced persons). This camp presently has 742 residents. They will be provided for in a completely comprehensive fashion. Food, shelter, schooling, medical care and vocational work for the women will be provided. This model will be utilized in identical fashion in the remaining affected provinces of Punjab, Sindh, and Baluchistan.  Together we all will make a difference.

 

On behalf of IMANA and the Relief committee I thank you for your support. The disaster is larger than the Tsunami, Pakistan earthquake, and Haitian earthquake combined . For us to continue making this difference we need your support, donate today and make a difference today.
