NEW JERSEY – Established in 2014 in New Jersey, Medina Community Clinic aims to provide quality health services at no cost to the underserved members of the American community, focusing on specialty healthcare.
“We envision a community where every individual has access to basic and advanced quality healthcare and where people enjoy their right to lead a healthy and prosperous life, regardless of their socioeconomic status,” the medical institution wrote on its website.
Over the past year, Medina clinic has served more than 300 patients for free.
Medina is not the only place where Muslim doctors provide free medical help for poor Americans.
In January 2012, a group of Muslim doctors volunteered to open the Rahma Health Clinic to provide free medical services for poor residents in New York’s Syracuse city.
Earlier in 2011, a free clinic was established by the Association of Physicians of Pakistani Descent of North America to provide dental, ophthalmologic, pediatric and pain-management services on Sundays at the Balal Mosque on St. Louis University’s campus.
Another clinic was opened by the Islamic Foundation of Greater St. Louis, in partnership with Volunteers in Medicine in October.
