  • 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.

IMI South Asia Earthquake Relief

Kashmir and Pakistan

In 2005, IMI Pakistan undertook a massive relief operation to assist in the aftermath of the deadly earthquake on October 8, 2005, that caused widespread devastation in Kashmir and Pakistan.

The IMI Earthquake Relief Operation Coordinator was Dr. Shafqat. Dr Fakhir Raza and Mr. Murtaza Asad were group leaders. The IMI Pakistan Medical Team was comprised of the following doctors and volunteers: Dr Fakhir Raza, Ammar Raza, RPh, Dr Salman Haider, Dr Syed Muddasir, Dr Hasan Jaffer, Dr Ali Asghar, Dr Jawad Ali, Dr Aqeel, Dr Ameen Zubair, Dr Adnan Younus, Mr. Murtaza Asad, Mr. Yasir Raza, Mr. Mudassir Husain, Mr. Aoun Ali, Mr. Hashim Ali, Mr. Ali Ahmar, Mr. Mujtaba, Mr. Shafqat, Mr. Nisar, Mr. Aurangzeb and Mr. Muntazir.

IMI HQ supported the relief effort by sending teams of medical professionals and through valuable material and financial assistance. The material support alone was valued at over $200,000 USD. Medical professionals sent to the affected areas included Dr. Nasir Naqvi, Dr. Rafi Rexa, Dr. Nishat Rizvi and Dr. Wajih Rizvi.

IMI provided medical and surgical relief to 21 villages through out patient department base operations and two medical mobile teams and equipped its relief teams with medication totaling 250,000 Rs/- in value. The medical mobile teams, comprised of 2 doctors, 2 volunteers and a local guide, examined about 150-200 patients daily for a total of 1896 patients. The mobile medical teams faced tremendous challenges due to massive landslides, but managed to reach communities as high as 5100 feet above sea level. The remaining doctors and volunteers served at the OPD base camp that received an approximate 150-200 patients a day.

IMI HQ in Pakistan also collaborated with Azad Kashmir University to undertake an extensive vaccination program to prevent the outbreak of communicable diseases. It trained paramedics through Dispenser/Compounder courses to enable the practitioners to provide basic medical care close to patients’ homes. A female health worker was also retained to conduct home visitations
