Aim: To provide free compassionate preventative medical care for All with a particular attention to the uninsured and those unable to afford it- all while providing all the dignity and confidentiality. To provide a safety net for those who have fallen through the cracks of the healthcare system.

Why: In the ever-challenging world of healthcare, we often encounter people who suffer debilitating preventable conditions as a result of unmanaged chronic conditions. It is disheartening when lack of access and affordability are to blame.

Did you know that 42 percent of population lives below the poverty line, with the average income hovering around $26,000? According to the CDC, Around us here almost 20% are uninsured. That’s 1/5 neighbors and friends!

The Muslim community is eager to serve our local community in this capacity with the collaboration of our neighbors and friends.

Need: 42 percent of population lives below the poverty line, with the average income hovering around $26,000
