Taroudant - The US health care system is costly. It is very difficult for the poorest and even the middle class to gain access to health care. However, many associations and groups of individuals are mobilizing to make it easier for needy people to receive health care.
Taroudant – The US health care system is costly. It is very difficult for the poorest and even the middle class to gain access to health care. However, many associations and groups of individuals are mobilizing to make it easier for needy people to receive health care.
Following the example of many health institutions in the US that treat poor patients for free, such “Rahma” Clinic in New York, the Red Crescent clinic in Alabama, and the Muslim clinic in Memphis (which has received an award), Miami Gardens clinic now offers free health care to those most in need.
Run by a Muslim medical team, the clinic provides health care for anyone who cannot afford the cos of treatment regardless of their origin or religion.
With a team of 32 volunteers, the clinic offers its services six days a week for those who have no health insurance or government assistance.
Because medicine is also very expensive in the US, the patients at Miami Gardens will also have access to drugs at a reduced rate.
Led by Dr. Zafar Qureshi, the clinic receives between 30 and 35 patients per day. Once a month, specialists in pediatrics, psychiatry, and cardiology offer free consultations to the poor patients.
It is with these kinds of initiatives that Muslims show the true image of Islam and its principles of generosity, tolerance, and self-giving.
Such generous services offered by Muslims communities abroad will surely correct the negative image of Islam that terrorists and the biased media promote of Islam and Muslims.
