“IMANA has been an extended family for me ever since I joined as a medical student in 1998. As an organization it has been instrumental in my growth as a Muslim healthcare provider. Frankly speaking it has made me a better Muslim to say the least. IMANA allows for one to feel a sense of ownership; of the organization itself. I have had the opportunity to serve humanity in far-fetched places. It has been because of the compassion and lending hand IMANA has offered those who are less fortunate around the world. May Allah continue to bless IMANA.”
