• It was an excellent conference well planned, presented, and well attended.  If individually traveling we may have never enjoyed the kind of reception the participants received throughout their stay in Iran.

  • 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!

  • If InshAllah, I secure a residency in the upcoming match, I will owe the organizers and the speakers at the seminar more than they will take credit for.

  • IMI has been my outlet for philanthropic work since before I entered into high school. It is through IMI that I see my efforts, here in New Jersey, manifest into something much greater around the world. IMI has helped me realize that ambition alone is not enough to change the world; in order to achieve the changes we wish to see in this world we require ambition, vision, and most importantly execution. That is why I have joined IMI, so that my ambition and vision can meet their execution.

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
