  • Thank you very much for the wonderful work you do. I have seen it first hand in Karbala during the Arbaeen camps and my son was fortunate to participate in two of the missions. I have made a donation today.

  • I cannot express the profound impact IMI has had on my life: from the incredible opportunity to serve on the Arbaeen Medical Mission to the insightful career guidance and special programs for Young Leaders that I’ve benefitted from!

  • It is an honor for me that I am a part of IMI, but why am I considering this as an honor?  I was studying in Karachi (Pakistan) when my teacher told me and my friends about IMI. At first, I thought that it's somewhat related to giving free medication to those who are poor, etc. I went to the first seminar and met different medical professionals there. After few meetings, I realized that it's not just giving free medication to needy people, beside that, it is giving life to humanity

  • I just wanted to say thanks to everyone on this list for what proved to be a truly life-altering experience.  It was terrific working with all of you, except Farhaj...But seriously, Naeema and some of my other classmates know rather well that I had allowed medical school and the residency process to make me cynical and tired.  I'm happy to say though, that after a week of truly hard work, emotional challenge, and actually helping some people, I have returned home feeling refreshed and renewed.  As corny as this all sounds, I'm actually excited to be a doctor again.  I can't thank you all enough for that. So I'm hooked on relief work.  I hope that I have more opportunities to help in situations like this, and if possible, to work with you all again.

East Africa Drought Relief 2011

East, Africa

With 2011 classified as the driest year on record in the eastern Horn of Africa, the health, livelihoods and food security of millions of Somalis, Ethiopians and Kenyans are at serious risk. While Somalia is considered the epicenter of the crisis, much of the country is still inaccessible to international organizations. IMI began collaborating with local organizations in the region in August and continues to work with BETA Charitable Trust and Cooperation for Health and Education Programs (CHEP) to provide assistance with food, water, and livelihoods development. Over the last 7 weeks, CHEP volunteers have personally reached almost 12,000 households (approximately 90,000 individuals) in 37 separate villages and refugee camps. Volunteers dug shallow wells to provide access to cleaner water for use in farming activities as well. IMI's partnership with BETA Charitable and CHEP will provide immediate and long-term relief to those affected through continued food distribution, and increase in the rehabilitation of wells, and livelihoods development including farming support. The relief and recovery program targets not only the immediate malnutrition, but also provides a sustainable source for water and food, as well as income, for a healthier future.
