Save Syria Medical Relief Mission

Dr. Nabiha Islam, a young medical doctor who has been active with the IIT community for many years, will be joining a team of medical professionals under IMANA to assist Syrian refugees in Jordan. There are over 600,000 displaced Syrian refugees in Jordan where IMANA's Basic Health Unit will provide free medical aid to refugees who have no status in Jordan, and therefore no healthcare. "I will be volunteering with a group of doctors and nurses from the Islamic Medical Association of North America in November 2016 inshAllah," says Nabiha. "We will be seeing and treating about 300-400 patients per day. Everything you donate will go directly towards purchasing medical supplies only (all healthcare providers are volunteering their time and purchasing their own flights)!"

Please note that IMANA does not have charitable status and a charitable tax receipt will not be issued.

Pope says it's wrong to identify Islam with violence

"I think it is not right to identify Islam with violence," he told reporters aboard the plane taking him back to Rome after a five-day trip to Poland. "This is not right and this is not true."

Francis was responding to a question about the killing on July 26 of an 85-year-old Roman Catholic priest by knife-wielding attackers who burst into a church service in western France, forced the priest to his knees and slit his throat. The attack was claimed by Islamic State. Continued...
